4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Single bottle dated 12/17/12. Yet it’s the freshest and biggest hop nose I’ve gotten from just popping the cap! Pours a light amber color under a thick pillow of foam. Malts are nice and sticky, yet leave a sort of dry finish. Hops are thick too, and resiny for a kind of candy feeling. Despite its light alcohol, it’s pretty intoxicating.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A dark yellow beer with a dense, blond and quite big head. Aroma has sweet caramell, peaches, citrusfruits and mandarin. Taste is clearly dryer than aroma, still caramell, herbal-pine hops, some fruits. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Only slightly fruitful. Slightly disappointment, anyway the bottle isn’t very fresh anymore.

660ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Zesty lemon spice, lemongrass aroma. Thin palate, perfumed soap and floor cleaner lemon and sweetness. Works in the aroma, but is boring after that.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2014 355 ml bottle, from CITTI-Markt Flensburg. ABV is 4.9% according to front label, according to rear label (from German importer BraufaktuM) it is 4.6%. BB date 30.07.2013. Malts are Pilsener, Pale (Maris Otter), Münchener, Caramel. Hops are Fuggle, Cascade, Centennial, Chinook. Deep golden colour, moderate white head. Aroma of caramel, orange marmalade and American hops, also some herbal notes. Smooth mouthfeel and flavour, moderate carbonation. Not too sweet, a little caramel, herbal hops but not very bitter. Not bad at all despite BB date, but will sample again when I get a fresher bottle, might be even better fresh.

A well made pale ale. Too straightforward to make me love it but if looking for a safe pale ale without unique hoppiness this is a refreshing and solid choice.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
4th July 2014, on tap pint in The Public House Bar, Venetian, Las Vegas. Solid enough Pale Ale with plenty of citrus hop notes in both the nose and taste, crisp and refreshing. The bar is fairly dark so the exact colour eluded me, light amber maybe? Medium bodied, if a little over carbonated for my UK palate. Came very cold, flavours appeared gradually as the beer warmed a little and became more bitter as time went on.

A "California Pale Ale". Doesn’t taste that great, actually. I would be interested in trying more from this "style", if they exist.
