superspak (4678) - Michigan, USA - MAY 31, 2014
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 12/13/2014. Pours lightly hazy orange amber color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, floral, grass, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of citrus/floral hops and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Light floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, floral, grass, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of citrus/floral hops and bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good English pale ale. All around good balance and robustness of citrus/floral hops and bready malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

LorenSommelier (25) - Oaxaca, MEXICO - APR 26, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2014 Color dorado oscuro, bien gasificada, cabeza muy duradera, de burbujas muy finas, como claras a punto de turrón. Se antoja mucho. Aroma a lúpulo y caramelo. Sabor amargo pero bien equilibrado. Excelente textura en boca.

rlgk (18255) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2014
Bottle at the hotel in San Diego. Clear golden beer with a rich lasting offwhite head. Hoppy fruity aroma, bready, caramel, biscuits, wheat, some herbal notes. Hoppy floral flavor, bready, grainy, a bit artificial. Hoppy bready finish with hay and fruity notes.

Light amber/copper color. Mild hops/citrus smell. Creamy head that disapears fast. Simple taste but enough to satisfy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Bottle from unknown. Pours a slightly cloudy golden color, little to no tan head. Aroma really strange, dried fruit, strawberries. Body lively with a subtle lingering bitterness. Way different.

exeter (510) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 28, 2014
Surprising enough a Mexican beer that isn’t the same old taste that is a typical Mexican beer. The head that pours off this amber coloured beer is excellent. While the smell does have the tones of a Mexican beer the taste doesn’t follow suit. The beer has hints of a typical pale but with some hops added in, while it doesn’t overwhelm the palate. Overall an excellent beer to try.

Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2014
3/25/2010. From bottle. Amber color with a white head. Citrus, malt, caramel and fruity aromas. Nice hoppy flavors, but a bit buttery. Still not bad at all.

erickok (5404) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2014
My first was big butter, but the replacement wasn’t at all. Pours amber bodied, stable off white head. Moderate amber malts, grassy and citric hops, bit herbal, sweaty yeast not quite fermented long enough. Medium bitter for the style, nice drinkable palate. Aroma isn’t quite right, bit too much vegetable, but I do really like the palate. (Bottle from The Beer Box Cancun)

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 7, 2014
Slightly hazy darkish amber with good lace left down the side of the glass from the off-white head. Aromas of mellow fruitfulness - stewed apples, apricots and peaches. There was more volcanic hoppiness in the flavour profile and a gratifyingly bitter finish from good punchy hops. Just lovely.
