This was the first beer this excellent brewery bottled. A bit dissapointing as it was cloudy.This is something I dont mind in a wheat beer but dont feel too comfortable with it in a pale ale.Pleasant hoppiness with some citrus seeping through but the cloudiness still put me of.

Good sized lingering head, cloudy golden colour. Strong hoppy aromas, some malt and yeast. Strong hop flavours, with some caramel. Well hopped and very tasty pale ale.

Rune (9500) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2009
From the Real Ale in a Bottle Bar at GBBF 09. Medium sized, white head over a plain golden body. Sweet malty aroma added by dark spices. The flavour can be described as an interplay of succulent fruits and caramel malts.Some mild honey hints behind it all. On the sweet side of bittersweet to the ending. Medium bodied and with a fine drinkability (Earls Court, hotel room, 07.08.2009).

pintbypint (3014) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 2, 2011
500ml brown bottle. Golden pour, hazy. Thin white cap despite a vigourous pour. Malty nose, caramel sweetness with only a faint suggestion of citrus. Taste has a marmalade-y mix of orange and lemon citrus hops over a light caramel malt base. Soft bitterness in the finish featuring orange peels and grass. Has nice English malt aftertaste. Light bodied, good natural feeling carbonation. Pretty soft and subtle for an IPA, but the site classes this as an English Strong which I guess suits the beer a bit more. Malts are nice though, hops are in the right places, but not forceful enough to hold my interest. It’s subtlety might be it’s strength depending on who you are.

St. Cuthburt pours a sparkly, bright orange copperish body with a foamy off white head. Lovely carbonation with some spotty lacing and a overly unimpressive head. The nose is fruity and lightly hopped with a light breasdy malt and a fuzzy peach esque note. A hint of white sugar and light citrus. The taste is sweet and lightly malted with an overly fruity taste. Very subtle notes of lemon, grass, wheat, apricot and peach. Nothing in the taste compares to the nose. A nice, crisp finish with a light hop. St. Cuthbert has a medium body with some soft carbonation and a light subtle aftertaste of bitter hops. This is an okay brew, but nothing comparable to an IPA. The peachy sweet taste is lovely, but it is missing all the bitterness and hop character.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2011
Bottle. Dark hazy amber. Lasting white head and a bit of lace. Thick body. Flavour is herbal, floral and earthy at the same time. A nicer English style IPA than usual.
