3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Toad in the Hole. Pale amber with a slight haze and low diminishing foam. Cushy aromas of warm grains and fruitcake. Taste of apple and caramel precedes a lively minerality. Finish leaves a slight coagulant feel common to session beers fermented with a particular American Ale yeast that’s ridiculously popular.

Bottled. Golden colour, small white head. Cookies, hops caramel and some malts in aroma. Flavour is hoppy and smooth, along with some caramellish malts. Leavers a nice sweetishbitter flavour in aftertaste.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2008 This is alight but tasty, crisp ale. It is golden, bubbly, with a thin, dissipating head and has a very mild aroma of grain and flowery elements with a hint of citrus. The taste is similar, being very mild, but pleasant, and lasting with nice balance of light grain/bread with hints of apple and citrus, faint flowery bite, and a crisp, slightly flowery finish. It is refreshing, crisp, and highly drinkable while still providing good flavour.

Aroma and hop taste are pretty understated. Very pleasant hop flavor. Mellow, soft citrus hop with little bitterness.

Refreshing pale ale. Not very hoppy so people who think that Sierra nevada is too bitter this would be the choice.

Clear amber, large off-white head that lasts nicely and leaves nice lace. Toffee and light citrus aroma. Medium body, slightly resinous mouthfeel. LIght brown sugar, bitter lemon and grapefruit lead to a bitter end that leaves a lingering astringency.

Full fruity C-hop nose and a nice amber-orange color, bit hazy. Gorgeous fruity hop flavor and only moderate bitterness to balance a lightly sweet malty center. Could be drier for my own taste but highly drinkable, and frankly more tasty than the rougher Red Seal.

Bottle at La Taverna In Kunshan. Pours a very nice copper hue that’s hazy. Pure white head lasts and body has moderate bubbling. Aroma is floral, hoppy, bittersweet and fruity. Taste is bitter malt and light citrus. A real treat after miles of tasteless lagers traveling all over China. Leaves intricate white lace on the glass. Its a decent beer by American standards but numerical rating may reflect withdrawal from availability of good beer. This tastes so fine right now I’m tempted to clean the restaurant out and fill my suitcase to avoid the tsingtao and snow plague in the next town.
