4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Golden and clear with a medium head. Hoppy and flowery with some citrus also pleasant. Creamy head and a bitter finish. The label is bland and a bit old fashioned. The beer is excellent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Clear, pale amber colour, frothy head. Looks inviting. Aroma is fruity, slightly berryish and floral Nelson hops and caramel malts. Crisp, slightly toasted malts, fresh and dry. Lingering, enjoyably bitter finish. Medium body, frothy texture. Really enjoyable and refreshing. Perfect balance of hops and barley.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 355ml, a golden beer with medium head, good lace work. Nose is on fruit hops such as orange, grapefruit, resin and bitter mandarin, Aroma is on caramel, burnt caramel, caramalt, slightly toasted, good earthy and grassy bitterness, smooth, long bitter and burnt caramel like finish. Very pleasant, easy drinkable and well balanced beer, good, malty side is more interesting than fruit hops side.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Strong aromas of caramelly hop and dried fruit. Body was clean and crisp, but had a decent depth to it. Enjoyed the flavours of toffee, raisins and a touch of citrus. Well balanced and rounded. Commendable stuff.

Ruikt lekker bloemig, zoals ik van een Pale Ale verwacht. Een hazy donker blonde kleur, dienik heb leren associëren met lekkere bieren. Al spreekt iets lichter me meer aan. Zachte, bloemige smaak met ingetogen semi-zure bite en nasmaak. Zeker niet de minste pale ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2014
Look: strong, dark orange, medium carbonation; forms a stable 2 fingers high crown which faded slowly and left nice rings after drinking;;
Smell: soft, kinda underwhelming light smell; can detect sweet malts and fruity, citrus hops;;
Taste: starts bitter then comes to a smooth and pleasant finish; soft citrus, grapefruit notes are found in the bitterness and stay with you;;
Moutfeel: pleasantly spicy but light carbonation feel, medium body, very easy to drink; refreshing, leaves smooth citrus bitterness;;
Overall: light, fruity, smooth bitterness, good brew, a nice drinkable APA
