look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle, no date.

appears a hazy golden copper color with 1/2" white head. decent lacing, good retention. hoppy aroma, a bit citrusy, but not as much as a typical West Coast pale ale.

taste has a decent malt backbone underneath, with decent hop bite. medium body. carbonation is strong, fizzy.

overall - a nice standard pale ale.

Deep gold bordering on light amber. Thin white head with no retention.Some lace.

Citrusy, grapefruit hops with a caramel backbone. Some blackcurrant.

Some grapefruit hops, some caramel malt. Not very much of either, though.

Medium bodied with good carbonation.

An inoffensive, everyday beer. Pretty good, but I prefer other local options to fill that role.

Pours a dark gold, light amber in color with okay white head that fades down to a thin lacing. Smells of sweet malts. A little syrup like with some citrus hops thrown in. Tastes rather sweet with mostly caramel & some melanoidins. Some citrus hop flavor. Tastes a little medium full due to the sticky sweet malt & hops. Overall, an above average pale ale. A good sessionable beer.
