3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from the "Beer Shoppe". Pours a clear golden orange color with a small foamy white head. Aroma of caramel malt, citrus, and pine. Taste mimics the nose. Decent, but nothing special here. Your run of the mill pale ale.

This was a very solid beer loads of citrus and floral notes on the nose which are balanced well by the malty backbone which shines through at the end

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Świetny aromat chmielowy, cytryna, grejpfrut, winogrona, bardzo czysty i zachęcający. W smaku wytrawne, z wyraźną goryczką w stylu amarillo (pestka grepfruta), za którą nie przepadam, ale tu była ok. Finisz za to lekko męczący trawiasty. Niemniej jednak nie przegięte, orzeźwiające, idealne na plaże itd. No i dla hopheadów...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden with medium-lived off-white head. The nose reveals notes of citrus, mango, apricot, berry; overall bright fruity notes combined with light earthiness reminiscent of noble hops and a hint of pine and caramel. The flavor is not as big as could be expected from the nose; it even feels a little watery but still fitting for a regular pale ale. The bittnerness on mid-palate is moderate and the finish doesn’t reveal much of a heat from the alcohol. The aroma of piny resin is a little bit more obvious upon taking a sip than it was initially on the nose. The carbonation might be slightly above average, but not enough to be in the flavors’ way by any means. A very nice one; I’ll have another right away.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle bb12/2014, ransomed on a hot cycling day from the only chilled OetkerFactum treasury@Stadelbauer Getränke. "No. 622". Drinks very clean, lean and almost as Kölsch-like as its dryhopped Braufactum Colonia neighbour in the fridge: somehow Centennal and Chinook enhance this cold & crisp palate feel, sanding the appealing fruitiness off Cascade and Fuggle for a more straightforward bitterness. Impossible to tell 4 malts have been used: thininish and sessionable at below 5%, only not at this imported ransom price.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
BBD: 04.15; Little floral, citrus aroma. Pale-Golden color, very clear. Small head but lasting till glass is empty. Not very bitter, light malty body, good drinkability. Nice beer but not superior.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught from the Bottle Shop stall at PMQ. Crystal clear honey amber pour. Smells of malt and wet grassy hop, maybe a bit of rubber. Tastes of hop and slight corn (?). Nice oily body. Definitely not bad for a pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Bottle Shop at PMQ. Light golden pour. Light hoppy aroma with bready malts. Mild hops bitterness with sweet malty backbone. Not terribly interesting but easy drinking pale ale.
