Holmen1 (2337) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 16, 2014
Flaske hos Steven april-14: vi er enige om at dette er en sitrusfrisk og god apa med masse smak og drikkeglede, godt gjort for bare 4,5%. Fullers skuffer sjelden, og heller ikke med denne.

dynamiteninja (1487) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2014
Bottle. Medium white head. Clear sparkling gold body. Nose is tropical fruits and pine resin. Could swear this had Northdown hops in it. Peppery with a nutty finish. Good amount of bitterness with some tang towards the end. Dry finish. Fairly crispy. Good carbonation. Reminiscent of White Shield. Very acceptable.

danlo (1122) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2014
500ml bottle. Golden coloured, foam white head and aroma of floral lemon citrus hop. Flavour is biscuity malt caramel with lemony notes and grapefuit bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, light bodied, soft to medium carbonation, dry bitter finish. Quite drinkable APA.

JonnyConga (77) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2014
On an American scale subtley hopped but hops are very much there and a good rounded bitterness to finish. Really like this. Very interesting beer from a great brewery. Got a Bengal tiger in the fridge.... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hawthorne00 (2399) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2014
Bottle. Bright gold with a white head. Aroma of mandarins, grapefruit, grass. Very light bodied. Bittersweet with light biscuit, grass and citrus, a little apricot. Dryish, moderately bitter finish. Apart from the citrus flavours - which are OK but donít really sparkle - itís a bit dull.

Jimthechap (1607) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 3, 2014
Fullerís? An American Pale Ale? My world just went topsy turvy. Golden colour with a coarse white head and persistent sparkle. Bright, fresh hop aroma - grassy herbal hops and undertones of fresh spruce. The flavours are true to style as well with resinous bitterness and a medium body. This was pleasantly surprising. Orange and lemon citrus begins to take over the flavour on the lengthy finish. Old world imitating new world and done very well indeed. Lovely stuff. So much flavour for such a mild abv.

MattiasA (862) - MalmŲ, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle at MalmŲ beer and whiskey festival. Not really an excellent apa, itís decent, still think Fullerís should probably stick to the more classic English-style beers.

allmyvinyl (3087) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 27, 2014
500ml bottle at home. Pours clear gold, big bubbly head that didnít last despite high carbonation. Aromas are light citrus and pine, slight butterscotch. Taste is light bitter, light caramel. Finishes thin and watery. Probably better on cask.
