3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2x500ml bottles as "Golden Crafted Ale" bb09/2016, over 3 months period, danke Dirk. Richly expressive, unidimensionally tropical nose of mango&peach mousse, papaya, lemon curd: definitely merging into APA Citra territory here. The juiciness in taste is curbed by an unbalanced piney and lingering grapefruit-pithy bitterness running underneath, overplaying the delicate UK malt base. This golden ale wants to a zippy APA at all cost and you can taste and feel both the aspiration and the conflict in that in mouthfeel.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice IPA close to being a British bitter. Drunk at room temperature from pint glass; 500ml bottle bought from Fusion supermarket in Hong Kong. Appearance is cloudy yellow-brown with big soapy coloured head. Aroma of lemons and coriander, very hoppy. Very dry on the palate, but nice softness with low carbonation. Tastes of walnut, grass. Lacks nuance but very drinkable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
500ml bottle. Best Before 24.09.2015. Slightly opaque pale gold colour with a towering, frothy, ice cream like head which refused to reduce, wonderful lacing. Assertive aroma pine forest, grapefruit, passionfruit with a malt undertone. Beautiful balance of medium sweetness and a shade more bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth texture, lively carbonation and a long bitter resin finish. Very enjoyable but left me feeling very gassy. 8.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Pulkovsky Universam , St Petetsburg. Lovely beer. Aroma of hops, yeast and citrus. Medium carbonation, citrus, wood notes, very bitter hoppy finish. Packed with flavour for such a low ABV. A lovely cross between an English bitter and an American Pale Ale. Would make a great summer session beer.
