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

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Znakomite piwo, ładna szata graficzna etykiety i butelki. Elegancki wygląd kryje porządne i jakościowe piwo walijskie. Mętne, średnia piana, zapach słabo wyczuwalny, ale smak słodowy i zbożowy. Finisz rozgrzewający chć niezbyt wysokie stężenie alkoholu ma to cudne piwo

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 8C. Gold with a modest white head. Fruity aroma of oranges, grapefruit, light biscuit. Bittersweet - a little sugary with oranges and some biscuity malt, pleasant bitter finish with grapefruit, some pine and herbs. The malt side is sweet and light, but there’s enough character there to complement the bitter citrus without just being sweet. Refreshing and tasty enough.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pour at Great Japan Beer Festival Osaka (7/13/2013). Fruity and malty (British-style) nose. Hazy gold straw color. Big hits of whiskey and tobacco. Smacky-lip sipping. Doesn’t really smooth out. Some mild peppery harshness, and some rye-like notes. Interesting stuff.

Aroma: Honey, sugary malt and grapefruit.
Appearance: Slightly hazy golden body with a medium white head. Lively carbonation. Light lacing.
Taste: Balance between bitter unripe melon and sweet honey - it tastes boozier than its 5.6% ABV. Dry, metallic finish.
Palate: Medium body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Average carbonation.
Overall: A bit too sweet for my liking - I struggled to finish the bottle.
