3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed 3/7/13. Bottle says 5%. 22 oz bottle into a nonic pint glass.
A: Pours a dark copper color. The head is a dinky looking half finger white shade. It doesnít fade away to nothing in record time, but it certainly doesnít look impressive. A minor amount of lacing is left on the glass. One really has to pour aggressively to give any sort of decent head.
S: Hm. This really smells like a English-style pale ale. Itís heavy on caramel, toffee, brown sugar, marzipan, and a touch of earthy hops. A combination of nuttiness and even chocolate appears after it warms up sufficiently. This is definitely miscategorized - but as a bitter, it works well.
T: By gawd, smakawhat wasnít kidding when he said this was a bit chocolaty. Earthy, piny hops are the first flavors I note; after that, the malts take over. They have a very caramel-esque, vaguely sweet tone to them - and yes, thereís even some notes of chocolate, nuts, apples, and vanilla. What the hell is this? An ESB? Maybe a hoppy brown ale? Or a defanged Arrogant Bastard clone? I donít know at all. Iíll give it some credit - it drinks like itís bigger than 5%. But at the same token...it drinks like itís bigger than 5%.
M: Both the nutty, chocolaty, and hoppy characteristics all conspire to give this a dry finish. Itís a rough kind of dry, though. It suffers from the typical pratfall of many beers with a prevalent crystal malt backbone - itís too coarse near the finish. The aforementioned coarseness doesnít fit the lingering syrupy buildup on the palate, either. I probably would have enjoyed this more if the mouthfeel didnít get in the way of the flavor profile.
O: Not sure how itís called an APA here, this is very much English-style. Decent, just donít expect anything close to SNPA. Do expect to find it wearing Union Jack knickers should you ever decide to pull its pants down, though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of biscuity malt, some caramel, earthy hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a moderate bitter finish. Not much in the way of fruits, more of an earthy malty aroma. Carbonation is rather high. Iíd say this is average at best, I like my APA a lot more fruity. Taking into account that I had an old bottle (well over a year old), I wouldnít mind trying a fresher specimen one day.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazy golden amber with frothy white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, light sourness and caramel malt sweetness. Taste is citrus, light pine, some caramel and an off tartness that dominates the finish. Smooth bitterness is in the background but this one is just off.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle (22oz $5): Cloudy darkish orange with huge white head. Very high carbonation which I think amplies the bitterness/harshness making this drink unpleasant.
