First had: on tap at TJ's, Paoli, PA

Darker amber pour, with a thin white head that retained as a small ringlet; nice lacing. Aroma of toasted bread, caramel malts, light grassy hops. Taste was more on the malty side, toasted bread, caramel malts with a surprising amount of roastiness, with light citrus and grassy hops taking a back seat. Medium body, quite drinkable, but not exactly what I'm looking for in the style. Still pretty good overall.

Resurrected from the days of old, New Holland reaches into the coffers of early days and pulls out Paleooza- a well-balanced American Pale Ale that hits the moderate stride of the style with consistency and a great deal of satisfaction.

Starting with the stalwart appearance of slightly hazed copper, the ale builds a frothy ivory-stained foam. With solid staying power and broken lace, the beer casts the quintessential look of American Pale Ale.

Balanced aromas of hops and malt align on the nose, neither allowing the other to pull ahead. The result is a scent of caramel-soaked citrus fruits, toasted barley, pecan, and straight-up Grapenuts cereal.

On cue, the taste does similarly as the malt sweetness lays on the early palate with the caramel taste that slowly develops into a grainy-sweet balance late. Layered upon the malts are the hop contributions- white grapefruit, citrus peel, and soft pine notes to balance the beer mid-palate. With very little influence from fruit notes or spices, the taste is all about the even-keel balance of hops to malt.

Medium bodied through and through, the soft carbonation rises from residual malt textures for a creamy upstart but a malty-dry finish that's accentuated by moderate hop resins, alcohol warmth, and trailing sweetness.

I can see where Paleooza would have been the epitome of Pale in the early New Holland days. Where the ale falls to simply another well made ale, it does little to remain memorable. Nevertheless, the beer is a pleasant and refreshing ale that's well suited for a vast array of American cuisine.

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

Pours with a hazy complexion and amber in color. The lingering head is small.
Aroma is mostly grains and malts, not much in way of malts.
Taste is unflavorful and bland with raw grains and some malts. The ending is a sharp bitterness.
To me it was a rather boring beer that lacked flavor,
