3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours a clear golden yellow with a small creamy white head that turns into a thin film. Aroma is lightly hoppy, some pine appearing. Okay round mouthfeel. Flavour is light bitter, grassy, pine hops give good dryness. Fresh and light.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very drinkable, and nice and dry. Decent level of carbonation, nothing to complain about. Sadly I think this has sat a little too long, and the british ale yeasts are never really meant to hang out in the bottle too long. Thus, it has a slight funky aroma and flavor that comes from breakdown of the yeast. The american hop profile is really subdued - in a good way. I’d really like to have this one on cask, within 50 miles of the brewery - I bet its killer. Cheers up to low alcohol british brews with american finishing hops, I would love to see even more of this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Amber body, nice white head, fruity hoppy nose. Fruity, hoppy body, not herbal/earthy like so many English beers (presumably due to the American aroma hops). Very quaffable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Clear light amber colour with a big foamy head. Unexpected sour fruit aroma as well as citrus and grassy hoppiness. Sweetish malt flavours with some offsetting bitterness. Low carbonation. Disappointing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught@Oluthuone Amsterdam, 4.2% ABV) Clear amber with a small head. Quite pleasant and fresh aroma of strawberry-fruity hops, and hints of lemon. Flavor of lemon-limey-fruity malt and nutty-grassy hops, with a hint of metal. Light to medium-bodied, reasonably refreshing palate with low-medium carbonation. A quite snappy and fresh brew, but nothing spectacular.
