3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is fresh, grassy and hoppy. The taste follows the pattern, but there is also a deeper flavor bubbling underneath from dry grains, straw and solid malts. Easy to drink and a perfect summer pale ale. Take a trip down the avenue (avenyn), and get yourself one of these.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle BBE: Unknown. Well-chilled. Pours a slightly cloudy gold-amber, with a medium, well-maintained, loose, off-white head. Hop-forward aroma; tropical fruit (mainly pineapple), really sweet and fruity, clean, slightly resinous. To taste: a light sweetness and a light-medium bitterness. Hint of fruity sourness. Light-medium body, slightly sticky texture, medium carbonation and bitter finish. One of the cleanest pale ale/IPAs I’ve tried - masses of fruit with little or no spruce/pine. Delicious.
