Hazy yellow color, small white head. Bready, slightly citrusy and grainy nose. Bready, pale malty flavor, a bit harsh finish. Palate is watery. There is some good points in this beer, but overall too light.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of floral hop (I think) backed with some citrus. The aroma seems a bit dusty. Lightly orange tinged gold color with a subtantial head that attempts some lacing. Starts lightly sweet and floral, followed by a light maltiness, which continues into the finish. There is a floral or herb component in the finish, as well as a malt note, and barely enough bitter. After four lagers, this was a pleasure. Perhaps otherwise, if it had followed four IPAs.

on tap-pours a white head that laces and yellow color. Aroma is grassy/grain-caramel, like a pilsner with extra medium malt. Taste is grassy/spicy-hops, grain/light malt-sweet caramel, crisp. OK effervescence.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden color with a medium thin and fizzy white head that burns away quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Faintly floral Euro-hops aroma with a bit of malt. Light body with flavors of mildly spiced hops and sweet malt. A hint of grapefruit as well. The finish is mildly hoppy and short. Barely average overall.

Bottle, bought at the brewery a few months ago. Deep golden colour, average white crown. Bready, sweet aroma with hints of chamomile. Biscuity malt, marzipan sweetness, nearly no bitterness. Not really in the APA paradigm, not true to the English pale ale style, more like a simple golden ale, and not a very good one at that.
