Judge: Andy Weigel (
Judge Qualification: Provisional Judge
Entry ID: 35969979
Style: 10A American Pale Ale
Beer Info:
Bottle Inspection: All Good
Bottle Comments:

Fruity aroma that are reminiscent of melon, with some very light citrus notes. Light notes of lightly toasted malt with caramel sweetness.
8 / 12

Light amber or deep gold. Crystal clear with dense, rocky, off-white head that persists. Color is slightly too dark for the style.
2 / 3

Toasty bread crust with light caramel sweetness. Hop bitterness brings up the rear with a light citrus, fruity, hop flavor. Balance is slightly more toward the malty side. Hop flavor and aroma are slightly lacking for the style.
14 / 20

Medium body with medium low carbonation. Creamy and smooth with no alcohol warmth.
4 / 5

A decent example of the style but seems to slightly miss the mark with the hop flavor and aroma. Malty/caramel toasty flavors and aroma slightly prevail. Hop flavor has possibly dropped out over time?
