3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 12oz bottle into a Pilsner glass. Much darker than expected, nice mahogany brown color with moderate size white head. Faint smell of fruitiness. Nice flavor and mild effervesces in mouth. Not overly hoppy or bitter with nice smoothness at finish. One of the best pale ales

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle 330ml sourced from ales by mail. Poured a dark amber colour. Clear. Creamy coloured, short living head. Malty aroma. Taste is malty, caramel, bitter and subtly spicy. More characteristics of an amber than a pale. Lacks flavour. Lacks love. Not an exciting beer. Nice artwork though.

33cl bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. A surprising find! A golden amber pour with a billowing cream head; sweet, nutty, malt aroma; rich malty caramel body; with the faintest whaft of herbal hops in the finish.

bottle at Zamas, Tulum , Mexico. not as bad as expected, run of the mill pale but way better than a pacifico or corona. British Pale ale, earthy, light weeds & floral notes, caramel malt backbone. OK

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy, red-orange with a tall, light beige head.
Bready caramel and orange scent.
Taste is orange malt, iron, bread-heel....
Sweet, but with a metallic bitter....tastes old, but it’s not.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pretty bad. Barely noticeable hop nose, somewhat grassy, straw. Caramels, vague fruitiness, light diacetyl. Flavor sweet with a strange fruit, diacetyl, flat almost watery palate, little hop flavor and only enough bittering to balance at the finish, which is semi-sweet, avoiding cloying only because of the thinning finish.

Enticing copper color. White head. Nice light flavorful pale ale. It was surprisingly better than expected.
