3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very English ale and a great classic in its style, as is clearly attested here. Creamy, off-white, stable head, colour a deep orange blonde with copper hue, clear. Nose gets flowery hops, cake, pear, whisky, gooseberry, caramel, bitter honey. Taste a soft and gentle fruitiness, some apple, honeyish and caramelly malts, towards the finish a widely spreading oily and aromatic hoppiness, very pleasant, soft and flowery and lasting for quite a long time.

Bottle @ Barely Legal Tasting Room .
Pours clear, light amber .
Smell is rather intense, sweet , typical maltyness . Some faded floral aspects, yet hoppy does not come to mind ..
Taste is quite surprisingly bitter , with a sugary sweetness in the back ( very clear that that is sugar - tastewise - ) It has got rather much, yet doable , amount of carbonation.
Finish is rather sharp bitter .
Many co-operating tasteaspects making this beer to have an intense taste, yet all aspects themselves are elegantly gentle .
Nice bitter , for sure, but I expected more since the 95 % on style .

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice hazy golden orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light foamy lacing that trickled down the glass in a nice speckled sort of way.
The smell had some nice light fruity and slight sweet nuttiness. The soapiness normally smelled in English pale ales is tamed fairly well in this one.
The taste was mainly sweet through the fruits and nuts.
On the palate, this one had a super long dry and sweet finish with a fairly decent sessionability about it.
Overall, nice English pale ale that would probably be a go to for me if I lived in the distro of this thing.

Pours a clear amber with impressive off-white head. Aroma is really impressive fruity English ale with loads of sweet jam components. It also has honey, noble hops, caramel and biscuits. Round and fruity palate. Aftertaste is spicy and floral noble hops, toffee and honey.The noble hops lingers nicely. Overall: Wow. very impressed. Excellent fruity aroma paired with a very nice hop bite in the end.

Clear light amber, fair white head, medium carbonation. Sweet and bitter palate. Black pepper and faint charcoal aromas. Fairly understated. Nothing to get excited about unless you’ve been drinking terrible beer all your life.
