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.

"After an initial pleasant blast of citrus fruit hops, this beer falls a little flat. Not literally as the feel is thin but prickly, but even within style the flavor is a bit boring. For 4.50...never again."

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bière blonde presqu’orangée, au nez sucré et fruité, ainsi que légèrement houblonné ; en bouche, breuvage relativement désaltérant, sec et fruité comme annoncé. Les malts, les houblons, et même la levure semblent jouer du coude pour occuper l’avant-plan en terme de saveurs primaires. Une pale ale solide, qui tente peut-être un peu trop de plaire à tout le monde sans vraiment contenter personne, mais qui demeure très efficace, agréable et plutôt originale.

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.

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.

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.
