3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle @ home. Batch #273, BBE 24.08.2013
Aroma is rather nice and fruity with a slight vichy‐like feeling typical to low ABV beers. Flavour is rather hoppy and somewhat fruity with resin and some caramel. Unfortunately the same feeling of vichy here too, which makes this a bit harsh. Quite typical ”high hops, low ABV” ‐beer.

33 cl bottle. Batch #273. BBE 24.08.2013.
Pours clear dark golden color with a huge, lasting frothy head. Aroma of hops, nice mild caramel notes on the background, grass, some citrus fruits and some floral notes. Flavor of mild fruits, caramel notes, some hay and some oily hops. Slick and a bit bitter palate with a dry finish. Nice aroma which the taste does not quite match.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 09/24/2012. Pours clear golden amber, thin white head, medium retention and light lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and citrus hops, light pine, dusty grains. Taste quite hoppy for such low ABV, tongue tingling, profile much like the nose, mild sweetness towards the end before nice bitter finish, dry. Light sparkling body, this one goes down quick and easy. Really tasty stuff, awesome session brew.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2013 330 ml bottle.
Pours a hazy copper golden colour with a white lacy head. Aroma of juicy tropical fruits and NZ hops. Flavour of bitter hops, kiwi, floral notes, harsh grains, citrus and weak caramel. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Finishes bitter, a bit grainy and dry. A tasty thirst quencher. Needless to say, drinkability is great. 7-3-8-3-13 3.4
330 ml bottle for the n th time.
When it’s fresh, it’s great. Really packed with flavour and a massive hop bite. Needless to say, after 2-3 weeks the flavour loses it’s edge.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Sainsburys. Really nice volitile hop aromas immediately after opening the bottle of soft tropical juicy fruits. The aromas fade rather quickly. Richa orange in olour with a thin white head. Flavour is hop forward slightly thin and tinny / metalic in the finish with light bitterness. This is a really good session pale ale. I could happily knock several o these back of an evening.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Great aroma of tropical fruit (tangerine, mango) plus citrus, perhaps lime like notes. Slightly cloudy with a thin but persistent head. Palette is very thin but not unpleasant. Flavour does not live up to the promise of the aroma, bitterness overwhelms the malt character and drowns out much of the aroma, it’s a reasonable tasting beer but a great smelling one.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ugly amber body white head. Aroma is citrus and tropical fruits with bit lactic maltiness. Mellow flavors, lots of tropicalness. Bit metallic and watery. Nice session ale. Definitely. Unbalanced.
