3.44/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Color is a clear amber, head is small and white. Aroma is sweet and soft and fruity, full of peaches and melons, among more.
Texture is airy and light. Hops are actually quite quiet and make little presence upon the palate. Balance is bright and fine, nicely rounded, malt is sweet, but, sorry, when you put it all together, it's rather run of the mill. Swwet, but short finish.
Tasty and nice and pleasant, but lacking the hoppiness that would have made it thoroughly appealing. The fruitiness is bright and sunny, but this pale ale is really lacking in body and texture.
I do like it okay, but see no reason to pick it up again, when Summit EPA is everywhere you look around here. (686 characters)

James Page Pale Ale; While this was certainly a good looking beer (amber with a thick off-white head with nice lacing) and it smelled OK (hops and flowers), and the initial taste was OK( hop aroma built into a hoppy taste, with an undercurrent of sweet malts) the over all beer was not satisfying, The reason, I think (and its hard to describe) was that the hops flavor seemed to be flat and musty. Decent enough, but there lots better out there. (446 characters)

Clear, dark amber color, 1/4 inch head sustained by upcharging bubbles, froth tends to a yellowish color. Vaguely sweet smell. Bitter initial flavor, not wonderful, maybe to much hop aggression (liberty hops according to the label). After the first bite the malts are pleasant enough to the finish. OK back taste and pretty good swallow (a little gassy). Seems like a typical American Pale Ale but thinner than some and skewed toward a not very tasty hop flavor. Needs adjustments. Fairly drinkable, mid pack. (517 characters)
