Another shoutout to blue_zulu for providing this one too! Pours deep jaune with a medium-large white head which recedes to white covering. Aroma is tropical fruits with some caramel and mango. Taste is peach sweet, mango sweet, tons of fruits with a big bitter finish.

500ml can (Alus Celle, Riga)
Massive fruit coctail aroma, tropical and fruity. Light palate, pleasantly fruity body. Caramelly, but not sweet and sticky. Very easy quaffer, but packed full of flavour. Just a little bit plasticky in places.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Canned 01/21/16. Pours fairly clear deep golden honey, large white head. Aroma is citrus, orange, resin, fairly floral, really nice citrus notes, but slight tropical note in there, which really bumps this up for me. not overly dank. Flavor is again, floral, decent lemon and orange, woah, a nice like biscuit, nilla wafer maltiness, slight caramel, some nice hops but not overly bitter at all, really stays true to the pale ale style without going into IPA territory. Really flirts with the line and is a pretty great APA. Really pleasant, just nice. The citrus hops with really pronounced malt backbone (that doesnít go overboard and become egregious or overly Midwest Malty) really make this very solid. I get why itís considered as good as it is. It isnít the best beer ever, but damn is it good.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste caramel, pine, earthy. I thought this was really good. I would definitely drink this again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml can (Alus Celle, Riga). Clear amber color. Small size, white head, stays. Burnt plastic, sweet, citrus in aroma. Fruity, citrus, grainy, some herbal stems in taste. Herbal hops and bit of rubber in aftertaste. Quite high carbonation. Not really doing it for me, but nether the less decent brew.

Pleasant surprise. Full of aroma kick, nice depth for so low ABV. Nice citrusy floral touch, pineapple, ripe fruitiness, light pine. Light sweetness with moderate to light bitterness. Smooth, well balanced

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can at Bishops Arms. Best by date 12-09-15.
Slight hazy orange amber. Big thick off white head.
Balanced floral hoppy aroma with citrus fruits, light caramel, light cream, resin and soft tropical notes.
Pretty dry with citrus and zest, light light caramel, pine and resin. Woody dry bitter finish.
Light body, soft carbonation, slight oily.
Much dryer than expected. A light citrussy hoppy ale with a resiny bitter finish. Probably awesome fresh on draught. Now itís ok and mostly a nice one to tick off.
