3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rusty reddish hazy pour with a nice clingy white head. Draft at Gigs in London. Somewhat weak scent of citrus and fresh cut grass. Wet and refreshing. A bust of flavours at first that slowly mellows to almost nothing in the finish. It has just a touch of that pale ale bite right in the middle. Very subtle despite the name. Best beer I’ve had so far tonight.

Bought from Grand River Brewery retail store. Poured from 500 ml bottle. Poured medium gold, slight copper haze with small frothy head. Citrus-like hops aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, with medium to heavy bitterness. Frothy head lasted the entire glass, with decent lacing.

500mL bottle to wine glass
Aroma of hay and caramel malts. Clear reddish amber with almost no head. Burnt malts with a nice piney bitterness. Unfortunately this brew is a bit watery and thin or it would have been much better.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden-amber in colour with a thin white head, light lacing. The aroma is of pale malts, caramel, floral hops and bready. The flavour is lightly sweet, some pale malt, light caramel sweetness, toasty and rather hoppy. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, medium/light body, medium carbonation. Finishes with a bitterness that gets stronger as you swallow.
Not bad, highly drinkable.

Bottle - 500ml. Hazy amber body with a thin off-white foamy head. Decent hoppy aroma with malty and some woody hints. Its fresh, light hoppy taste carries grapefruit notes and ends with a good bitter finish. Average APA.

Bottle, shared with Robbie. Buttery biscuity malt with light fruity hops, vegetal nuances, low bitterness. More like an English style pale ale. I’m not THAT put off by diacetyl, but for those who are, be warned, there’s lots here!
