330ml bottle into glass. Faint sweet malt nose. Hazy golden beer with solid white creamy head. Many fine bubbles. Robust malt taste with zingy mouthfeel. Finish is mildly citric hop bitterness. Well balanced, easy drinking, good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330mL bottle from local BWS BB 22/01/16
Deep golden body, quite clear with a small white head.
Nice aroma; earthy. dried herbal spice, some pine & woodiness, with plenty of cooked orange & marmalade character backed up by a decent measure of biscuity, caramel malts.
Medium-full body, moderate carbonation with a bit of chewy malt texture.
Body delivers a solid hit of biscuity, toasty, lightly nutty, caramel malts with hop notes of orange marmalade, earthy & woody spices. Moderate bitterness, smooth, reasonably clean finish.
Tidy, drinkable beer. Not really what I’d describe as being "English-style" - has some APA qualities to it.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2015 A surprisingly well crafted and balanced beer. Some sediment inside the bottle neck showing it is naturally brewed, cloudy amber appearance, nice head fairly high carbonation but better after letting it sit a little. Good malt body and a decent amount of bitterness without any sharp edges which makes me want more. No massive hop hit aroma. Trying to find the right words to describe - kind of a mature beer, like an old school no frills V8 that that could school most at the lights, but doesn’t have to, or the silent older bloke at the bar that still pulls the chicks, and could outfight the rest but just sits back calmly smoking on a cigar.

@DM x 4 pack. Big surprise, a really good PA and not sure why i didn’t grab these earlier. Great rich caramel malt and hops blend. Buy again, yep.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. A hazy amber colour with a fine, mostly lasting off-white head. Good nutty, toasty and biscuity malts with spicy orange and citrus hop characters and earthy yeast complexities. Light to medium body, medium carbonation and finishing with a modest intensity marmalade-styled bitterness of solid length.

A nice clean example of the style that managed to tempt a few friends away from their usual ice-cold lagers during a summer tasting session.

Short head, misty appearance, light aroma, taste is mild but distinct. Clear caramel and citrus flavours. Could be a good session beer.
