Reviewed based on tasting notes from a blind pale ale tasting.

12 oz. bottle inside a paper bag poured into a plastic tasting cup.

A- Amber color.

S- Nutty, earthy, good malt presence. The hops are weak in the aroma and taste.

T- Same as the aroma. The hops only provide a slight bitterness.

M- ?

O- It tasted English to me, and it turned out it was Cooperstown Brewing Old Slugger Pale Ale, which is a brewery that usually sticks to English styles although BeerAdvocate lists it as an APA.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - deep brownish orange slightly hazy.

Smell - semi-sweet, caramel, some citrus aroma. Not strong at all though.

Taste - decent taste. A real middle of the road slightly sweet taste of caramel comes through in the taste.

Mouthfeel - not much there

Overall - I thought this was an okay beer. Definitely sessionable. Not to overpowering.

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

A-Hazy orange, some carbonation, three finger head, semi-sticky

S-Grass, banana, butter, some citrus.

T-Meh, not much of anything. Same flavor that is all of their beers because of the yeast (the buttery note). Not much bitterness.

M-Medium bodied, some carbonation.

O-Only picked it up because it was the only beer I hadn't tried of theirs. It was meh. Not much reason to drink their stuff.
