3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle, 35.5cl) Clear, deep golden to amber colour with a medium-sized and slightly off-white foamy head. Cara-malty and delicately bready aroma with mildly herbal and grapefruity hops. Slightly sweet and bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Dry cara-malt character with fruity and herbal, also a bit floral hops, leading into a dry and mildly bitter finish. Easy-going, but unspectacular Ale. 29.VI.13

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mild and discrete pale ale, looks like a fizzy pale amber and smells faintly of IPAs, pastries and a third element which is hard to place. Tastes like watered down IPA, with notes of apples, white wine and a warm note of cheese and pastries. Very mild, but complex and interesting.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
35,5cl bottle from Galeria Kaufhof, Alexanderplatz. Enjoyed at the train to Schönefeld Airport. Fairly hoppy aroma with fruity notes, citrus and hints of pine. Moderate sweet with a fairly dry and bitter finish. Fair enough, but not impressive. (2014-08-04)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle best by April 2015. Simple amber malt base with excessive dry hopping. Polaris shows itself as herbal, green grass, cheese-y and little sweaty. Cascade orange jelly character makes up for it somewhat. Medium body, chewy, semi sweet, savory, fizzy carbonation, some retronasal resemblance to pulled weeds, earthy dirt notes and mint. Green / woody hop finish. Decent overall, no major flaws, just unrefined.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught at Meisterstück, Berlin, 24 July 2014) Hazy amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of citrus, apricots, crystal malt and orange peel. Malty, fruity taste with apricots, orange, rye bread, bready malt and a certain citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, quite dry. Fresh and tasty. Nice one.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours orange gold with a slight white head. Aroma is light roast malt and something suggesting melon. Med body or nearly. Flavor is somewhat lush melony fruit with light roast malt. It’s very smooth and rather light in some respects. Quite drinkable. Finishing mildly, smoothly, roastly, bitter.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not sure why this has such a low rating - decent pour, nice head and lacing. Some nice pine and citrus notes with a syrupy malt aftertaste.
