Appearance: The beautiful golden brown color of perfectly toasted bread. It’s dark orange tint and incredible clarity are quite appealing. The head, though a bit weak, has some staying power.
Smell: I get a lot of fruit. Peaches and something citrusy. I don’t get any of the traditional pale ale aromas though.
Taste: I get a faint hint of peaches, maybe some dried fruit. There is a nice aftertaste of hops, but I also get something off-putting that I can’t quite finger. It has a nice medium mouthfeel. All in all, it’s a very unique taste.
Overall: This was another weird one for me. Something about the taste was a bit off, but I still enjoyed this overall. I’m going to give it an 76/100, but that may be a bit too generous. I need a rating system that isn’t so arbitrary, but I love assigning points arbitrarily. What to do?
