3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale lemon, soft white head. Light eggy, soft pappery malt. Very little punchy flavour. Crisp enough carbonation and bitter enough finish, shame it didn’t get up in the gears quick enough.
Can, Cheers Zimbo

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can while camping at Ranch-a-Thon XIV. Aroma of faint floral hops but really not much coming out of the can. Taste is much more malt forward with some chemical and dirty hop flavors. Cardboard sneaks in. Bigger on the palate than I would prefer for the style. Hard to drink at only 5.6%.

It poured a clear copper color with a white head. The aroma was of faint floral along with some malty notes. The taste was of sweet malts with an earthy bitter finish. Very nice.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can at home, thanks to an IP trade with Stuart, 15/03/14.
Lightly hazed golden amber with a well appointed off white head that retains well.
Nose is pale malt, straw, orange,
Taste comprises orange pith, light mineral notes, light hop presence, bread dough, lemon rind.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
So so APA, a pretty basic affair, not much hop presence, clean and easy drinking none the less - it’s a state tick !!!
