This is delicious. The light color and frothy white head seem to go with the lighter body feel. The hops are spicy and citrusy with great pine and citrus aromas, and what’s great is they don’t dry out the palate. Flowers, grass, ripe fresh apple, juniper berry. The beer has enough malt support without the malt really getting in the way flavor-wise or becoming sticky. This makes X a total pleasure to drink - easy, but entertainingly complete. Maybe I just got an exceptional bottle, so I will have to research that theory with lots more of ’em...

Bonne Pale Ale, très houblonnée et proche d’une IPA, la base est si pure et si fine qu’on croirais un pils MAIS customisé par un carrosier portugais sous amphétamine

A goto for sure bomber if you are not into a big ale smith brew. Nice hops and some Vienna malts in aroma. Super clean beer with tight head and lively carbonation.

opalescent pale yellow colour, huge white head; aroma of citruses, pine and floral-honey notes; taste is the same; very pleasant APA

Appearance looks more like a lager than a pale. Solid all the way around though especially the very subtle honey flavors that then grows nicely bitter with a hoppy finish.

Bottle from Gonzo Beer, Coventry. Golden colour, thick white head. Gosh these American pints are big. Aroma a has tropical fruit, citrus and pine. Taste is slightly sweet and has a bitter finish. To be honest, it got a bit too much by the end.

650 ml bottle @ Cardinal. Clear golden body with a medium sized white head. Nice, easy and refreshing aroma with citric fruit, some tropical fruit, light malt and hint of pine. Flavor has lots of fruit like aroma, some malt and decent bitterness. Balanced body and OK aftertaste. Nice and refreshing, might have some more bitterness, maybe a bit old?

Pours with a thick white head atop a straw yellow body. Deceivingly full bodied - light in flavour & bitterness at first but then you notice why with the malt backbone coming through. This is not a complex ale - it is very simple but what it does, it does very well. Hop flavour is piney with some citrus & smooth maltiness.
