Drank on tap. Lovely rich colour and nice foamy head. It boasts some citrusy herbaceous notes. Its a quality session pub pale ale thats easy to knock back...one after another.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 probably the best of the bottled 4 pines beers, im happy to have it when the little creatures use by date is soon. heavy high alpha american hop aroma, slightly dirty somehow though, whether from yeast or hops not sure. some maltiness and caramel and decent bitterness, long lasting hop aftertaste and very dry finish - too dry - but with lots of diacetyl instead of body.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an amber colour. Aroma is a bit of pine, grapefruit with some caramel. Taste is also fruity and malty with some toffee leading to a medium bitter finish. I think itís way too carbinated so mouthfeel is too fizzy which is better suited to a Witbier not a Pale Ale. Overall not bad.

Golden colour with a slight reddish tinge. Minimal head. Slightly cloudy. Sweet fruit aroma. Slightly bitter malt flavour, definite fruit. Nice.

This isnít a bad effort actually. A slightly subdues fruity, hop aroma followed by a cloudy beer in the Coopers vein. Quite clean tasting, good bitterness and hop flavour too.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Thought this one was an easy sessionable pale but didnít really have anything going for it. Slight bitterness to finish it off but nothing else is really there

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pale amber with an inch of white head. Aroma of pine, citrus and light caramel. Light sweetness with caramel and a little biscuit, bitterness is very solid and takes over quickly. Piney bitter finish. Not much going on under the hops and theyíre a bit harsh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows lots of sweet, clean malt and floral fruity hops.
A fair whack of hops shows in the taste as well, with bold piney, resinous notes and hints of tropical fruit amongst the sweet malt. Finishes strongly with a audacious, slightly metallic bitterness.
Too much carbonation creates an overly dry finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle. Pours a clear copper amber, with a small and rapidly diminishing white head. The nose has a buttery aroma laid over a touch of pine, and is reminiscent of a bitter in some ways. A trace of pine hops to start, moving into a quite nice butterscotch flavour, and some slightly artificial popcorn. The finish is quite grainy, with white bread notes. Thereís nothing especially wrong with this beer, but nothing especially right about it either. Itís just very middle of the road, as I would expect from an APA.
