3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. (RBNAG 07) A hazy, golden-orange beer with a small, off-white head. A bit sweet, fruity aroma with some hoppy fruityness, leads to a flavor that is quite fruity and hoppy, but too low on maltyness for an English pale ale. Slightly dusty, medium full mouthfeel. Sure a decent beer, but quite boring. (071103)

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle… Pours a murky, deep gold with orange highlights, thousands of floaties and a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. There is a lot of apricot and biscuit malt in the aroma. Also, a bit mashy and a mild floral component is noted. Medium-bodied with jazzy carbonation. Estery, fruity flavor. Good malt sweetness and mild hop bitterness makes for a well-balanced beer. American black tea finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Ginger Man. Amber beer, slightly hazy and topped by a creamy white head. Aroma is lightly sweet and malty with a fairly prominent butterscotchy nose. A bit oxidized as well. There is a sweet crystal/caramel nuttiness behind a herbal/woody hoppiness. Flavour is quite hoppy with a light fuggles-esque character along with some lightly yeasty character. Bread crusts and a touch of pear/peachy fruitiness. Despite all of the positive individual characteristics, this beer never really comes together for me.
