3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Other than the self-given style not being very accurate, this beer is pretty good. Smells like hops and has a pretty decent amount of them. A little too much citrus flavoring to be fantastic, but good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lightly hazed dark golden colored liquid. A tall fluffy cream colored head with decent lace. Aromas of light pine and orange peels. Only a hint of pale malt. Full malt flavors from the first sip. A light citric hops balance. A touch too carbonated for my liking. Some herbs a tea seem to mingle with the malt. I like the way the malt is developed in this one. but there are to many herbs on the finish.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2007 I was delighted that the initial aroma pured a nice grassy and piny smell to it. Taste the same with a bit of floral arrangement, nice and smooth with a bitter back-taste

Smells like sour apples and british hops. The bitterness is balanced well with the smooth mouthfeel. This is like a pale ale with a unique bitter bite and a hint of sour saison flavoring in the finish. Great beer from the blokes across the pond. lol

Cask. This to me seemed more of a pale ale. Poured a copper color with little head. It was not distinct and definitly was not a golden ale. It actually was nothing special but nothing bad either.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I don’t know what has happened to me lately… I have become a sucker for session beer… enjoying them far more than the busty and bold High Gravity beers of the moment!
Poured a lovely copper body and a tall pillow of ivory head. The aroma and flavor bring pleasing earthy and mildly spicy citric suggestions. The finishing hops are blended together nicely with fruity, bready, and biscuity malts. The palate is medium and the finish is dry with hints of chipped Pine and Cyprus woods. Well done; a nice mild drinker, indeed!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Now for the correct rating of this. Deep, slightly hazy gold, slight head fades. American hop aroma from the Mt. Hood, lots of pine. Flavor is dirty biscuit, some pine and citric hop, and some wateriness. Yeast flavors are evident, but not tasty. Not too good.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Large offwhite head, good retention with a fair amount of stringy lacing. Good clarity, light copper color. Faint spiceyness in the nose, orangey. Maybe a touch of malt. Light bodied and crisp. Light biscuity malts and light spicey hop flavors, a bit fruity also. Finish is dry, fruity. A timid little guy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared with blankboy, HogTownHarry and GregClow - courtesy of blankboy. Light yellow, small white head. Grapefruit aroma, lots of strong citrus hops in there. All grapefruit taste, but soft enough and balanced with some light mal - I quite liked it. Struck me as much more American than British. A soft lingering bitterness. Subtle spiciness. A great session ale and in good shape in the bottle

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared with blankboy, HogTownHarry and tupalev - courtesy of blankboy. Slightly hazy orange colour with a decent white head. Aroma is nice, with some resin notes - a good combination of the UK and US hops in there. Flavour is fairly hoppy, but kind of spicey as well, almost like a cross between a pale ale and a Belgian wheat. Not bad.
