    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 6 | Mouthfeel: 7 | Flavor: 6 | Overall: 8

    Okay this is weird but I get a smoky nose almost like a sweet barbecue maybe an Asian barbecue. Also some pepper and some very sweet peach in the nose. Unique. Hazed deep gold slightly amber body whitehead that lingers slightly but doesn't really last too long minimal lace. Mouth has a nice tingle it's medium to light bodied plays really well in the back of the mouth very tangy. Okay weird I also get barbecue in the flavor they're calling this a pale ale it's much more like a sour which happens a lot with Kent falls. There's some apple cider vinegar there's some candy sugar there's a medium length finish that ends up almost clean surprisingly for as sweet and tart and sour and yes it's almost like drinking a sweet tart. Suspect the barbecue is coming from the oak barrel aging. I mean they're calling this a Paleo so I don't know where to downgrade the score because this is not a pale ale. I would wonder if it had gone bad except I bought it at the brewery so it's two and a half years old if doesn't taste like it's gone bad it's just really not a pale ale. I find a drinkable it's tasty it's just not a payal what do I do I guess I'll knock it down two points on flavor for being totally off style.
