3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium amber with an average (1-2 finger) white fluffy head, which dissipated down to a thick film and a large collar with very good runny lacing.
The aroma was of a sweet light bread malt, floral hops and a soapy yeast with notes of apple, toffee, caramel and citrus (grapefruit and orange).
The taste was somewhat malty and a tad bitter sweet with notes of caramel, toffee and a mild fruity ester in the beginning with a light hoppy citrus bitterness towards the end. The flavor hung around for an average duration, while the slightly bitter sweet taste settled on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was a bit beyond light in body and dry in texture with an almost medium carbonation.
Overall a pretty basic Pale Ale with a slight fruity twist...

Straight from the bottle at a wedding reception. Fairly typical pale ale--medium body, good carbonation, floral hoppy finish but not too overpowering. Solid overall.

Very bitter, dry, refreshing acidity.
Very hoppy as promised,
Good as a thirst quencher,

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle. A good pale ale but a little uninteresting. Could use a touch of something. A nice beer but I'd reach for something a little cleaner or more hoppy, one way or the other

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated based on notes taken 7 Apr 2012 -- From the bottle while in Pueblo at IFS. A very nice English Pale ale. Not a hop bomb like most American versions but a pleasure to consume.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I get a sweet aroma and slight hop from this orangy brew with yeast particles floating around. The taste is sweetness and bitterness battling for dominance through out this medium bodied beer. The aftertaste is sweetish an pleasantly bitter. A good balance.

Pours a dark sparkling orange with a large white head. Aroma is heavy on the hops. Flavor is moderately bitter. Too carbonated.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Dark gold. The aroma has Floral notes with pine and a rich malt background. A crisp hop bite quickly fades to smooth rich grainy malts. A little sweet on the finish with lingering hop resins. Overall, this is a perfect fridge beer as a go-to for any situation that covers all the bases.

Subdued aroma of hops, and sour dough bread. Pours a copper color with a lasting white foamy head. Dry feel with a slightly bitter hop taste and a short lasting bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into Spieglau IPA glass, a medium orange amber with deep and persistent off-white foam, lots of fine lace. Intensely malty with some great caramelly/biscuity/nutty complexity AND very hoppy with extreme fruitiness. Mango, apricot, lemongrass, lime zest, and I sh!t you not: some alchemy which tasted exactly like Fruit Loops breakfast cereal. Light-medium body, strong carbonation, crisp grainy mouthfeel, just a little residual sweetness, multi-layered hoppy aftertastes which eventually finished surprisingly dry. I guess the "English-style" refers to the maltbill, because the dominant hop impression is definitely New World. A tasty and memorable pale ale, whatever the case.
