3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This one pours a cloudy light copper colored body, tons of particles floating around and it has a small quickly sidesticking just off-white head. A bit low and non IPA-ish on the aroma, I get some fruitiness but it’s subtle, it’s somewhat sweet and almost floral. Also there are hints of mango and peach. Nice enough. It’s also quite on the sweet side in the taste. A bit to caramel-sweet if you ask me. Peaches and concentrated sweet honey melon. Subtle hoppy but still bitter. A strange interpretation on a IPA if you as me, but also a bit interesting. 25.07.2012

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Darkish brown pour, light tan head. Only a faint aroma, some hops and floral notes. Taste has the usual IPA bitterness to it. Not quite as sharp as most others of the style. Mouthfeel is nice and tingly, not too heavy with the carbonation. Overall, it’s a little bit off as in IPA for me.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Avergae head. Floral smell. Hoppy flavor, some sugar, some grass and orange peel. Medium body. Not too dominating. A big step upwards from the japanese bleak lagers. An ale that competes with the good europeans.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Rich golden red ale with a thick white bubbly head. Nose is grass, grapefruit, lemons and wood. Smooth and tasty in the mouth, giving some caramel, nuts, fruitiness (lemon, grape) and some light woods. Finish has a touch of alcohol in it, giving it warmth and some saltiness giving it a longer lasting finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looking for something different from the plethora of IPAs at the moment, then here is a treat for the taste buds. Pours copper orange with delicate lacing and faint carbonation. Aroma is biscuit, toffee, honey,orange blossom, slight resin and cedar. A very malt forward beer, slightly sweet with more toffee and honey notes. Some woody, earth notes come through with the cedar as well as faint orange and noble hop accents from the hops. Some what musky long finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle label matches with this one. Poured a very hazy deep mandarin orange. White ring. First pleasant impression is that it feels nicely unfiltered. Tastes of aged blood oranges. Clean leather. Good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating #997 - On tap at Beer Revolution in #yeg. Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy overtones, lemon, pine, floral, toasted malt. Taste is more of the same, dry hops and odd grainy/sandy texture (possibly from cedarwood) on the mouthfeel, dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Nice.

33 cl East West Sushi. Kommer bara ihåg att jag blev besviken på smaken. Väldigt smaklös öl.
