3.36/5  rDev -7.9%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from bottle into snifter.

P: Dark Amber, small head, kind of disappointing.

S: Light citrus, slight grassy smell.

T: Biscuity, grassy with a bitter finish.

M: Good carbonation

O: Kind of disappointed in this beer. Can think of many other APA's i'd rather indulge in. With the price of 2.50 per bottle i'll probably seek other things instead. Which sucks because I really enjoy New Holland so much. They missed the mark on this one.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

The body reveals a cloudy and dull copper with a billowing white head of dense foam.

The nose is weak caramel malt, barley grain, bran and a touch nutty pecan.

The flavor is light on barley, very malty with a dry roasted nut, pecan, tea leaf and a slight toast flavor.

The feel is dry but easily approachable and quenching. There's a thickness and thinness to it that leaves you guessing.

This is a Pale Ale reserved for the malt enthusiasts and not for those who want a hoppy ride.

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a snifter

A - It is orange in color with some amber highlights. There is yeast suspended in it. This beer is topped with an inch of off-white head that meagerly clings to the glass.

S - The first thing I notice is grapefruit. There is also maybe a little pine. I smell more citrus as it warms.

T - The taste starts out kind of weak. I get some mild hops. This taste grows with each drink and as it warms. I taste some mild citrus which I find refreshing.

M - Moderate

O - This is an easy drinking pale ale with a mild hop presence that is nice after 12 hours in the heat. It has just enough hops to make it enjoyable but is by no means overwhelming.

3.03/5  rDev -17%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

12oz bottle into a pint glass. There is some random code on the bottle but it means nothing to me in terms of a bottling date.

Pours a hazy dark copper with a quick half finger white head that is then gone. Just a few random splotches of lacing and head.

The aroma is fairly weak but I can pick out some light tropical fruit along with a touch of pear and peach. Can't really detect any malt at all.

The flavor has more fruit than the aroma but is still on the weak side. I feel this beer might have some age on it. Nice juiciness that is really leaving me yearning more a bit more. Turns into some pine closer to the finish. Just a touch of bread in the background. Bitterness is on the moderate side with a light mouthfeel.

Overall, I feel this could be a respectable APA when it is fresh but it falls off quickly. I need to try to find a fresher sample.
