4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This is my new favorite pale ale. For me its just goes down better than my old fav, Alpha King. The fruitiness is not overpowering, and the beer is not overly carbonated, just enough.

Tap at rock bottom at the airport. Light amber color with medium bubbly white head. Strong malt and hop nose. Full body, high sugar and malt. Some floral but subtle. Good when very cold but worse as warms. Pretty good.

Malty, caramel, citrus in the aroma. Light brown with small head. Medium body, medium carbonation. Somewhat malty, but with dry, slightly bitter finish. It’s ok nothing special. Session but not enough flavor.

This pours a semi-clear dark amber color with a frothy beige head. The aroma is weak but has the hint of bitter hops. The taste is interesting as its well-balanced, easy drinking, yet has a bitter taste. Finishes with a lingering bitterness on the taste buds. Pretty decent brew but also easily forgettable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from gbbf 2015 and drunk at home. Clear amber copper brown colour lasting thin white head. some caramel on the aroma. Some light hop. Grassy hop. Light bitterness. I mean it’s like a not very good UK golden ale. In fact it’s an English bitter. Wow we have come full circle. I started drinking brown UK bitter and now we have the emperors new clothes of a session pale ale that is a UK bitter. Weird. Not the beer weird. Just life is weird. And cyclical. OK bitter.
