3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hoppy resinous and citrus notes, smells almost more like a stronger IPA. More toned down on taste, still pretty bitter and almost spicy, while there is also the pale malting of the APA style. This beer is rather filling and nice and crisp.

I’ve had these many times on tap up north and always really liked them. Drinking this one out of a bottle. Big nose of hops and citrus, some caramel. Tastes quite balanced.

Bottle into IPA glass. Pours a clear golden colour. Aroma is of citrusy hops. Taste is of citrusy hops and a little breadyness. Quite a good beer. Could drink this all day.

On tap at the Wagon Wheel. Slightly dull aroma, lacks "pop". Hazy light yellow pour. Taste is good, juicy and piney at the same time. Low bitterness, balanced for easy drinking. Will get again.

The Mirror Pond pours a yellowish orange bronze with a thick beige head that lasts a good while and leaves plenty of evidence of its existence. The aroma is earthy hops and caramel. The flavor is caramel and floral hops. Overall this is a decent beer.

On draft at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill. Pours a clear caramel with an off white head. Aroma has notes of citrus, pine needles, and cedar. Taste is balanced. Citrus with a bit of bread, caramel, grass, and pine. Medium body and carbonation. Clean and refreshing in the mouth. Overall alright. Citrus, grass, and pine needles with a bit of bready/caramel.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Creamy and extremely hoppy, with a great dandelion, citrus, and grassy nose. True to the aromas, the flavor of the beer is unctuous at five percent, which is an accomplishment, and there is a nice, long juicy-bitter finish to round the beer out.

12oz bottle. A real throwback. Pretty much in a different realm than say, Zombie Dust. Shows the influence of British brewing culture on 80s, 90s breweries. Bland earthy hop and malt combination. It is balanced I suppose, but the end product is pretty bland. I’d like to believe this was a better product in the 90s..but who knows. Caramel malts a little heavy. OK, but very old school.
