Tasting - Gulf Brew 2010 - Golden color white head. Citrusy nose, unclear of anything else. Flowery maybe. Flavors of citrus, dough, hay, and hops. Kept getting a "rice" taste, although I would hope it wasn’t brewed with rice grains. Light. Drinkable.

Malty, sweet nose. Sweet taste, medium texture. Finishes smooth, with a flowery bitter sweetness. Not bad, a good summer pounder.

(12oz bottle best by Nov 2010 thanks to bu11zeye) clear pale yellow with a ring of white bubbles. Nose of hairspray and old rotten fruit. Taste of earth, old raw grain mash, watery fruit with a light body. Very light on flavor.

Draft. Body had a golden body with a white head that did not have much retention. Aroma had some bread and some citrus notes. Flavor was mild at best. A noticeable citrus presence and some wheat notes. Smooth beer. Overall nothing impressive but still enjoyable.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark yellow color with a small white head. It has a strong lemon aroma, a resin hop aroma and a floral aroma. This is a very drinkable beer. It doesn’t have a lot of taste to it but it’s very easy to drink.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The bottle has a best before date printed on it and the label lists the abv at 5.0%. The neck label has a brief description of the beer as well.
Appearance: It has a light golden honey colored body with good clarity and a few bubbles of visible carbonation here and there. From the pour it produces an average size white foamy head that slowly settles down to a soft, creamy, thin film covering. Lacing is slick and spotty on the glass.
Smell: There are notes of bready and biscuity maltiness with some clover honey like sweetness mingling with mellow citrusy (orange/lemon) and herbal hops.
Taste/Palate: The flavor has a very drinkable medium body with a good balance of hops and malt. I get a lovely mix of sweet buttery dinner roll like malty notes with a touch of honey and soft citrusy and herbal hops. The finish is just enough hop bitterness to keep everything in check and interesting. The texture is very smooth with soft carbonation.
Notes: This is a very well made English Ale. As for its style I feel it is walking the line between English Pale Ale and English Pale Mild in my opinion. Ether this beer just screams summer time drinkability!!!

Ale? Debatable. It looks like a lager, smells like one and drinks like one. A little citrus zest on the nose. Taste is crisp with some floral notes. Nice outdoor beer, but otherwise average.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
7/4/10. 12oz bottle into a pint class. The pour is clear dark yellow apple juice with a fizzy white head that fades fast. The aroma is sour apples, a hint of cream, and pale malts. The flavor is dry malts with noticable black tea and some dry green leaves, almost like dark salad greens. Yep, English.
