3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brewed stronger than the regular Bluebird and with an American hop variety - more like an APA. 500ml bottle conditioned from Hogs Back. Sparkling pale gold with a fluffy head. Not hugely aromatic but lightly herbal hops and a bit of citrus fruit. The flavour is citric hoppiness (grapefruit), slightly herby and quite floral. Fairly hoppy and bitter but not over the top with not a huge amount of flavour coming from the hops, but thankfully the background malt is pronounced enough to keep this interesting. A nice light almost-APA.

Bottle. Golden pour with a thick white head. Nose is like oats soaked in lemon soup. A touch of sugar puff. Cereal tastes in the mouth, too. A grassy, gentle hoppiness, some oaty, doughy flavours. It’s all very gentle and pleasant. And refreshing.

Bottled. Overall very asty for me. I like this beer style. I bought this beer for early Christmas today. The malty aroma and taste plus the aromatic hops make a good combination. The bitter hoppy finish with some hazelnut taste make it a delicious experience.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice looking sweet fruity pale amber coloured beer. Palate has banana initially, but becomes quite grainy and earthy midway. Finish is clean and short, with a hint of bubblegum coming back in. Tasty, easy drinking.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint 9 bottle shared. Poured almost a copper color with white head. The aroma is medium malt base and woody. The flavor is really different though a very good bitter and on the back end you get a wood flavor almost a cedar flavor that is dry and crisp and then disappears. Not over powering with alcohol. Quite good and with this flavor I would use this for poaching salmon.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle - pours cloudy gold with offwhite head and spotty lacing. Nose is earthy and caramel. Flavor adds grassy hops with metal. What a pitiful finish. Mildly sweet with slightly stronger bitterness. Medium to light body and easy to drink. Decent for the style until the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50 cl bottle @ Nurmo, BBE 08.05.2013
Aroma is fruity with peaches, some hops, citrus and hints of hay. Flavour has citrus, hops, some hay. Finishes dryish with somewhat malty feeling, English hops and toffee. Second glass of this had rather nice peachy notes and even some Belgian yeast.
Quite close to what it says in the label; aroma has feeling of American hops, starts with flavours typical to bitter and finishes like an English pale ale does.

Very good ale. nice hops and light bodied. If this is the stronger version, I might not want to try the lighter one.
