A true pale ale. The full body and rich gold colour comes from a blend of wheat, pale ale and crystal malts. It’s floral and lime citrus nose is created by the extensive use of carefully selected New World aroma hops. The final stage of dry hopping then produces a rich berry flavour for a big refreshing, satisfying brew.

[keg at Cloisters, Edinburgh] Not tried Goldeneye on keg before, realised I hadn’t actually rated it at all. Pale amber pour, with a thin off-white head. Sweet, malty nose once the beer has warmed a little. Plenty of fruit in evidence on the nose, as well. Citrus and pine on the flavour, before the malt arrives – good balance, and a good, lingering finish [09112011]

Scopey (6865) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2011
Bottle from Deeside Drink Emporium, Banchory. It pours golden yellow, with a thin white head. The nose is sulphur, sweet malt, orange citrus fruit, honey, pear and apple. The taste is sweet orange, tangy marmalade, peach, nectarine, sulphur, honey, alcohol warmth, dough and hay, with a dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Not bad.

Palme (3382) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2011
0.33l bottle from Systembolaget Passagen, Stockholm. This one pours a clouded copperish body with a small fading big bubbly and sidesticking just off-white head. The first thing I get in the aroma is lots of chocolate! Strange thing to put in a pale ale. Also nice fruity tones, caramel, ripe berries and lots of sweet malts. Nice aroma. Average carbonated with a rich and surprisingly thick and almost oily mouthfeel. Sweet and malty flavors quite elegantly balanced by fruity and dry hops. Hints of strawberries and peaches. Ends light dry. This one impressed me. A good APA!

Clear darkish golden with a large, staying, creamy, white head. Pleasant grassy hops aroma, light citric, grapefruit and some sweet green apple juice. Mild doughy malts. Medium carbonation, fine dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good dryness, some dusty doughy malts, light oat, good grapefruity hops, light apple. Long, lingering, nicely dry finish. A very nice pale ale.

blafa (511) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget, at home. May, 2011.
Pours clear pale yellow with an airy white head. Fresh aromas of citrus fruits and malts, bitter hops is also slightly noticable. The taste is malt forwarded with notes of caramel and crisp bread. Got a nice bitterness but overall it feels a bit watery.
