Schools Out, Mike Gives Epiphany Pale a 3.2

Our second installment of Staff Beer Ratings, a brand new program at The Beer Authority that hopes to give a voice to our talented beer staff, is from Mike.  Several times a week we'll be posting ratings by each of our staff (and occasionally myself) on bottled beers in the store.  We're using the system so that many of you can have a comparison basis for their picks.  The beers they pick are compensated by the store and we've encouraged them to choose new and/or interesting beers.

Old Schoolhouse Epiphany Pale

Commercial Description: A medium-bodied pale ale with moderate bitterness and modest citrusy hop aroma. This is a good beer to start with when building up the courage for the stronger beers. Epiphany pale may even support some seekers on their path to enlightenment.

3.2  Aroma: 6  Appearance: 3  Taste: 6  Palate: 2  Overall: 15

This is a nice little beer from Winthrop, WA.  It pours a bright copper color with very little head.  Not much hop aroma or bite, but a nice malt sweetness with just enough hops in the finish to balance nicely.  This beer isn't going to knock your socks off but it's a well crafted - if mild - pale ale.
