3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Love the can design. Evocative and tough looking. The pale pours a bright orange color. Leaves quite a bit of lacing on the glass. Herbaceous and piney in equal amounts. Good amount of bitterness. Really solid.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Amber/ruby with a big fluffy white head. Aroma is dank and piney with caramel and bready malt. Taste is too sweet. Melted caramel with citrusy hops and toasted bread. Palate is a little syrupy. There are a lot of good things going on here but the taste is just a little unbalanced.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Café Un Deux Trois. Smell is straightforward pine, caramel, orange, grapefruit. Pretty nice. Taste is very malty for a pale ale: caramel and rye with some sort of slightly artificial fruitiness like peach gummis. Vaguely Belgian-tasting. Finish is long and sticky. Not bad but won’t return.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From US pint can. Pours a clear copper-amber with a large tightly packed off-white head. Fine carbonation. Aromas of pine needles, lemon, orange zest and caramel. The taste starts out with orange and caramel, before a gentle pine resin bitterness comes through. Clean finish with a lightly spicy aftertaste. The flavours are ok but the lack of body means they don’t carry through and it lacks punch. Not bad but not particularly memorable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
473can. pours a very nice rich copper colour.
Aroma. one i can best describe as sweet citrus.
Taste. very hard for me to explain accurately, but very bitter with some slight caramel and nut undertones.
Overall. Quite a good beer, and another great example of an american pale ale.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Drought. Light amber-yellow with small off white head, no distinct aroma, sweetish hoppy taste, low carbonation, long finish with molasses like sweetness enduring on your palate. Not very remarkable.

473 ML can
Dark orange amber color. Good, long lasting off white head. Nice retention before falling to a thick collar with some sticky, soap like lacing.
Nose is slightly sweet. Biscuit, brown sugar and soft orange peel.
Taste is very sharp and bitter. Only issue is very metallic bitterness. Some slight pine, grapefruit and orange bitterness but really overshadowed by the metal sharpness.
Oily and medium body, light carbonation. Better local beers

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
malty and nicely hopped. A bit sweet in the mainpart. The aftertaste is intense, nicely hopped with floral hop-aroma and lots of maltyness. Slightly sweet and nicely bittered.
Solid but a bit too sweet.
