3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2009 Poured hazy amber tending copper. Substantial off white head that dissapates quite quickly. Aromas are really appealing! Sweet malt present with apricot and some citrus fruit. Palate shows more of the same, sweet confectionary-like apricot and grapefruit but thats about it. Finishes short, without any substantial bitterness to balance the sweetness. With a bit of tinkering this could be a cracker!

330ml bottle. Looks great when poured with a nice tidy off white head sitting above a hazy apricot coloured body. Citrus and flowering rose aromas come through at first. Flavour lets it down a little as it is not quite as strong or flavoursome as other American Pale Ales, but overall not a bad effort.

From a 330ml bottle on 16/8/2011. Pours a clear golden/copper with a big head.Has a slight grassy, fruity aroma. Flavour wise, there is a touch of sweet fruit (particularly citrus) but the main feature is a quite assertive, almost tangy and very long bitterness. This is more an English pale in my view, and quite a decent one.

a good pale ale, nothing exceptional but not too bad. Brewboys have never really been my favourite brewer

Almost clear, honey/amber body with a compact but lasting head. Hops on the nose upfront that carries through to the taste without overpowering. Good beer but not always my favourite style.

sweet fruity apricot aroma with some hoppy undertones, deep orange/amber colour with nice white head. Flavour is a mix of citrus and apricot fruit with a bit of a hole in the mid palate and short finish. Good, but room for improvement.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Caramel pour with a lasting small head.
Lots of c-hops in the aroma, presumably from intense dry-hopping. Some grapefruit and floral notes but mainly dominated by pure fresh hops aroma.
Clean sweet malt first up upon tasting followed by more fresh hop flavour and a hint of grainy malt.
Too much carbonation.

Bottle. Hazy amber brown, no head. Sweet aroima with a hint of honey perhaps. Medium body, light carbonation. Sweet and tangy foretaste with a reasonable bitter finish. Overall a decent beer but not exceptional. I had expected more so was disappointed - however it is very drinkable.

330ml bottle. A well rounded full body with intensely inviting citrus and floral hop aromas, robust caramel malt back palate, well balanced with lingering bitterness
