3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
spruce, citrus, golden, clear, white foam, frothy, light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, slick feel, average carbonation, bitter
Initial hop burst of citrus/spruce which fades fast. Malt is balanced with bitterness quite well for a mild effect. Pours golden with decent white foam that persists well. Mouth feel is slick, slightly soapy, with a mildly bitter finish. Not bad.

355ml bottle. Quite a floral nose and taste. Bitter aftertaste, with lingering malt aftertaste. Perfect with crisps or nuts.

golden orange pour with a nice thick head that faded quickly. floral aroma that was a little weaker than i'd like. hoppy (although certainly not *heavily* hopped) with a slightly bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice hoppy aroma. Pours golden amber with a moderate head. Not much lacing. Head thins and clings to the side of the glass. Nice hop flavor with considerable bittering hops. Good middle addition of flavor hops. Fruity and tart with a floral touch. Typical of American Pale ales with a bit more carbonation. And being around since 1975...it’s no pretender

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
355ml bottle. Pale gold to deep gold colour with suspended sediment. A towering, dense, creamy head with a buttery tinge. Wonderful head retention and some lovely lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops, biscuit, peach, honey and some caramel. Light to medium bitterness and light sweetness. Light to medium body, smooth texture; a wonderful mouthfeel. The finish is semi-dry but still managers to linger with a beautiful balance between the sweetness and the bitterness. A cracker of a beer.

This may be the best ale I have tried. Pour a cloudy golden color with a nice sized white head. The aroma is hoppy. The flavor is also of hops and may I add just the correct amount. Very nice brew.

straight forward pale. hopped pretty well - but not quite to ipa levels. looks and tastes pale - just a bit of malt - not much too complex going on. little on the thin side for my taste - but still well balanced. not a huge amount of flavor - but goes down easy. enjoyable

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Great golden color, short head. Starts off crisply, but soon gives way to a somewhat overtly alchohol sensation that’s a bit cloying. Uninspired bitterness lingers.

The hops are the first thing you taste, but after the first few sips the rest of the flavors come through. It is a bitter finish, but there is still something satisfying about it that makes it worth finishing.
