3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Relatively strong fruity aroma, but not as strong as other celt ales. Strong bitter taste, with a lasting citrus hops taste. Full mouth feel. Generally a refreshing ale without too much fuss.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from somewhere online, I forget, it’s been a long day. Clear golden orange pour, big white head, high carbonation keeps it there. bit too fizzy actually. Orange, apricot and cream on the nose. Light caramel sweet and good hop bitter taste. Quite rich for such a (relatively) low ABV. Sweet finish. OK.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
.5L bottle, BB dated Nov. 2014 and USDA certified organic, served in a Belgian snifter. Label suggests and English Pale Ale.
Pours hazy, light honey in color, with a thin but partly durable bone-colored head.
Both the aroma and flavor are unusual.
The slightly pungent aroma has clear and quite distinct contributions from sweet malts with light grains as well as herbal/fruity hops. In tasting, the hops are stronger and more earthy than suggested by the nose. They build quickly to a moderately strong level, then magically diminish, soon leaving a rather mildly bitter and hoppy aftertaste with some underlying bisquit.
Feel: medium-thin body; medium carbonation

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not a lot of aroma, bits of grapefruit, toffee. Not a lot in the taste either. Dry, bitter finish. Interesting, but not sufficiently interesting for a second go-round,
