3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Really great for a pale ale. Smells very sweet and of honey. Tastes sweet with more florals and bitterness than I'd expected for a pale ale. Body is nice, some oiliness, refreshing.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The appearance combines a large white head with cloudy amber color, and the aroma blends resin and floral hops with diacetyl. The taste is quite bitter on the front end but does fade to include a slight sweetness and atouch of sourness, and the palate combines a slick texture, medium body, a slightly bitter finish, and a carbonation that starts soft but increases ever so slightly.

Keg tap @ Euston Tap. Golden orange, cloudy, compact little head. Faint aroma of grapefruit and wine gums. The taste is a bitter bomb. Throughout. Threatens to turn sweet once or twice but doesn’t. A lovely bitter beer. It won’t be a life-changer but nice all the same.

Floral, grassy, oxidated aroma, pours a highly carbonated golden color with a pillowy white head. Bitter, dry, light. Probably old and was a good beer just isnt any more

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very hazy, cloudy pour. Golden to orange, depending on the spot in the glass. Fluffy, rocky head, leaving good lacing. A little bready and fruity in the aroma. Banana and a bit of peach. Strongly bitter for an APA. Light bready malt with a lot of hop bitterness overwhelming anything else. Apricots are the most distinctive flavor that shines through. Not sure how to handle this. It’s stuck somewhere between an APA and IPA. I don’t mind serious bitterness at all, but it overwhelms everything else. Complexity really suffers. This would go awesome with some really spicy food.

Hazy yellow with a decent white head. Aroma is vague grapefruit hops with just a touch of fresh pine. Flavor is very clean pine hops without the resin stickiness I sometimes expect. Clean, slight caramel malt in the finish. Very refreshing and light while fairly hopped.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 ml can from Kvadrat, rated at home. Sparkling clear deep golden body with a dense tanned inch thick head leaving excellent lacing. Sprucy and light meaty hops and light rock sugar on the nose. Sweet flavors are quickly followed by a somewhat stale bitterness that quickly dominate the palate. Medium bodied beer that drinks smoothly leaving the tongue bone dry.
