12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a golden copper color. The head is a two finger white shade, with a foamy texture and decent retention. Nice lacing is left behind on the glass. S: Actually, I’m mildly impressed here. There’s a decent (if not explosive) hit of mango and melon on the nose, with some of the crackery malts coming through after it sits in the glass slightly. This is actually a lot better than I remembered. T: Hops hit the palate first, but without any bitterness - just some nice tropical flavors. Toffee-esque malts come through on the finish, maybe slightly too assertively. Slight piny hints right after the swallow, too. It’s exactly what a good pale ale should be: balanced, easy to drink, satisfying, and refreshing. M: There’s a very crisp bite which helps to mitigate some of the thick-feeling maltiness and semi-sweet finish. It’s carbonated enough to help make it drinkable. O: This must have been reformulated somewhere along the way, because I don’t remember this being so good. It won’t blow the mind, but it will make a great everyday go-to beer.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

MelvinKalksma (687) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2016

Aroma:
Slight/medium aroma if malts, caramel, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Clear amber/orange beer with a small/medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts and caramel; ends slightly bitter with hops and citrus.

Overall:
A decent pale ale with a good hop aroma and flavour. The art of the flying dog beers always amaze me and I would give the appearance a four if I would take the bottle into account.

Fules (309) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - APR 1, 2016
Közepes, rendkívül tartós hab, gyönyörű, mélyborostyán szín. Illata finom fűszeres komlós, ipás, viszont semmi gyanta. Íze ipásan keserű, de csak minimális a gyanta, plusz icipici karamell. Utóíze nem túl markáns, komlós keserű, halvány édes karamellel. Végig érezni egy kis fanyarságot is. Egész jó kis közepesen testes ivósör.

BeerRenter76 (654) - Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Originally rated on 7/23/08. No. 3 out of the sampler pack, Pours a deep copper body, medium carbonation, with a rather thin cap. Decent aroma a little like ’juicy fruit’ bubble gum. Flavor carried the fruit hints, with some caramel malts as well, slight hop bite as well. Overall it is a fairly decent beer.

Aroma is earthy and has dough in it. Cloudy and dark golden color. Very minimal head. Not very hoppy. Average carbonation. Finish is longish but not very bitter. Overall not bad but would need a bit more edge. Quite refreshing drink after a hot sauna.
