3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
First time having this. Bottle form september 12. Smell is yeast and light grain. Flavor is bready, slightly hoppy, with a noticeable english yeast character. Rubber in the aftertaste. Lighter bodied.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I can’t believe I’ve never rated this before. The pour is a deep burnished copper colour with a thick off white head… pretty good looking really. Lovely nose with a soft fruitiness composed of cherry and a touch of berries. There is a bit of caramelly/bready character on the back. Soft and chewy with just a bit of herbal/spicy hoppiness. Fruity and lovely. Really, quite a surprise how much I like this.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Fresh berry malt aroma. Medium amber color with small head. Lightly sweet malt flavor with light hops finish. An easy drinking beer - a bit light on the hops for the style but still very good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2012 I really liked this one. Golden orange colour with little head. Hoppy fruity (orange) aroma. The flavour is also orangey and very smooth a typical pale ale taste. Very pleasant and moreish. It appears this is right up some people’s street but not others. I’m a fan though. Score 3.9
Subsequent ratings scored 3.4 and 3.5. Average becomes 3.6

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle, 35.5cl) Hazy, orange amber colour with a medium-sized off-white foamy head. Sweet cara-malty and slightly nutty aroma with fruity (citrus, grape-fruit) and slightly spicy hops. Sweet-bitter flavour, light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Cara-malty, initially bready and subtle nutty taste with fruity aroma hops; almost dry, sweet-bitter but also a bit slim and short finish. Otherwise an aromatic and likeable Ale. 22.II.10

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours amber with white head, aroma is a bit hoppy with some malt. Taste up front is a bit of floral sweet hops with some sweet caramel back bone and a bit of a dry and sweet finish. Not bad.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2007 [rerate needed] Nice rich color, good hoppy flavor. Not as strong as most pale ales, but has a nice texture in my mouth.

Bottle from a friend that brought it home from the USA to Sweden.
Brown color. Scent and taste is well balanced by malt and hops. Nice enough bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper pour, with 2-finger, creamy white head. Aroma of malt, some honey, corn flakes, peanuts, bread. Very unique aroma. Tastes malty, with a big corn flake taste and some honey at the finish. Semi-dry palate. This beer is very unique, and very good.
