3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden colour, a little like the colour of a ginger beer.
Aroma. aroma is of sweet corn and fruits.
Taste. I’m finding it hard to pinpoint any specific flavours but i’m getting a slight hop bitterness, followed by an apple flavour.
Overall. This beer is refreshing and easy drinking, but is a little bland for my liking.

375ml bottle. Pours cloudy golden with medium head. Slightly hoppy smell, but also a bit metallic. The taste is mostly killed by carbonization, and what’s left over tastes quite unlike a pale ale.

Swift, NYC bottle: Pours dull orange with white head. Aroma is grainy bread with some musty hops. Taste is similar in that sense. It be kind of a standard beer... With a hefty bit of pale malts and a mild undifferentiated hoppiness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml bottle into pint glass, best after 8/22/2013. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste lemon, pear, apple, cracker, lightly toasted bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light earthy herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, cracker, lightly toasted bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good balance and robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a very solid English pale ale style. All around good balance and robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
