I really like this a lot. Outstanding floral/herbal/piney hops on the aroma and taste....a lot of hop flavor without a lot of jagged bitterness...a light.bready malt is perfect as it never asserts itself but lends a sturdy backbone. Definitely drinks more like an APA body wise than some of these session IPA's out there..

Very impressive beer I will buy again. Drank great right out of the can as well.

grainy nose, caramel, fress mown grass
Hazy gold under a 3" stiff off-white foam cap, slowly descends and produces clingy, thick lace.
palate: rich grain, malt with a touch of caramel to butterscotch, medium body and carbonation, easy to drink, some light fruit, nice caramel aftertastes, not an overwhelming presence but very drinkable.
medium body, medium low carbonation, good hop finish.

Recieved as an extra and packaging date is Sept 2014 so please take the review with a grain of salt.

Pour - Massive head on the pour even if you are just encouraging it out of the bottle. Takes a good bit of time to dissapate.

Smell - Apples, Citrus, and some pine in there

Taste - Nothing massively prominent. Sound fruitiness with a bit of pine and bitterness on the tail end. Nice malt. Really would like to have a recently bottled one to compare against.

Feel - Feels fairly light, but not thin. Well rounded.

Decent beer, but really need to get a fresher bottle to feel it out. Hopefully in the future

Pours a hazy golden color with one finger of head that quickly settles to a thin cap. Moderate amount of spotty lacing is left down the glass. Really dig the aroma. Light floral, grassy, and fruity hops lay over a dry bread malt base. Flavor starts out moderately hoppy with floral and fruity notes. Relatively dry malt base that is light and delivers the hops well. Just a touch of butterscotch that is common with certain English yeasts. The carbonation is spot on for a light, hoppy ale. I have not been the biggest fan of Badger Hill, but this beer changes my mind immensely. Maybe they are getting their recipes tuned in as there seems to be a big variance in the beer reviews.

A- Pours clear amber to walnut hue. Light white foamy head.
S- Light yeasty bready followed by fuity/pineyness of the galaxy and wakatu hops.
T- Light tropical fruit on the front end, bready malty sweetness hangout in the middle with a dry grapeskin finish.
M- Crisp light to mid body and easily palatable.
O- Decent Session Pale Ale. Would pair well with grilled foods or just as a stand alone.

This is by far the best offering Badger Hill has put forward. High Road offers a sessionable Pale that is a highly drinkable beer.

Light amber with moderate carbonation. 1 inch white head that recedes not too fast, leaving thick lacing along the sides of the glass. Aroma is relatively strong, fruity / citrus hops with just a trace of malts detected. Pleasant and inviting. Initial taste has the hops flavor but a definite malty breadiness, slightly sweet. Good mouth feel. Even thought it is "only" 5% ABV, this is beer has body. Hops and malts flavor continues in the middle and into the finish, with bitterness only showing up in the aftertaste. Overall, this ale has a substantial malt core with lots of hops flavor and the hops bitterness not really showing up until late, providing a nice balance and crisp finish.

I consider this a sort of a hybrid beer. It lies somewhere between a pale ale and an IPA. But it has such a fruity and floral hop taste with a strong finish. Certainly, a good lawn mower beer that goes down easy after toiling in the sun.

This beer pours a hazy copper color. The head is a quarter inch in height, and recedes slowly into a small cap of lacing. The aroma is of butterscotch galore. Yeah, diacetyl. I can detect some malt sweetness, but the butterscotch covers almost everything up. The taste isn't as over the top buttery, but it is still there. What I taste beyond the butter is enough to make me think this beer might amount to something when brewed properly (no diacetyl). The are some nice melon and floral notes that I like in a pale ale. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, and a smooth texture. Overall, this beer needs some work, but I do think I will try it agian once more latter on down the road before writing it off completely.
