3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - Rich gold colour with long lasting, frothy white head. Citrusy aroma. Slightly below average carbonation. Medium body. Malty with plenty of citrusy hop flavour - probably Cascade/Amarillo. Pleasant, moderately bitter finish. Refreshing!

Bottle from the brewery. Nice dark amber. Inviting malty aromas. Peaches and pine. Low carbonation. Pretty good stuff.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Served in a glass - very clear, nice golden colour with a moderate fine head.
I would expect more fruity hop aroma from a modern Pale Ale - this had some tired hops and sweet malt but very low aroma generally.
The flavour was well balanced, with good malt character, but the hops were quite harsh in the finish which was a little unpleasant.
Would match well with their porkbelly, but generally I wouldn’t go back for it.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured a cloudy golden amber colour with a 5+finger thick off white foamy head that held a while then diminished. Laced spotty. Carbonation quite high with large bubbles forming many trails. Aroma of fruity hops with a hint of citrus and honey - a good Pale Ale aroma. Taste of medium hops bitterness. Light to medium body. Sharp harshly bitter finish detracts from what is a good example of the style.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
An odd take on the American pale ale. Sweet fruit aromas are present, but not typical citrus and floral. More grapefruit and sweet biscuit. Medium carbonation. Pale appearance. An okay effort bit leaves you wanting more

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had this one on tap at the brewery has a nutty malt aroma to it. The flavor is much the same with a slight citrus under tone nothing overly outstanding although far superior to anything boags or cascade have on offer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Cloudy amber with a rocky off-white head. Aroma of citrus, spices, light biscuit, floral honey. Taste is dominated by lemon, grapefruit and spices. Bitterness is a little harsh. Crisp and refreshing, but a bit unbalanced.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2010 noth spectacular about this pale ale. slightly floral with a hint of honey and vanilla.
EDIT: Tried it on tap over the weekend, and while still not fantastic, was much better than the bottle. The floral aroma is much more dominant, as was the floral hop taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Cloudy golden amber with a tightly packed fluffy white head and fruity hop aromas that bounce out of the glass with a mixture of flowers and honey. Slight metallic finish with a medium bitter body. Okay without being outstanding.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours amber with a large, but rapidly fading head.
Aroma is very malty, with lots of caramel. Not to be forgotten, the hop profile is earthy, resinous, with some orange blossom in there as well.
The caramel carries through as a flavour, along with the resinous hops. Unfortunately the bitterness that follows is sharp and harsh.
Carbonation is a little high, body a little watery.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gold to bronze, well carbonated clear beer that holds a firm white head. While I wouldn’t say ’mammoth’, the citrus aroma is certainly present, I may be drinking it a little cold here. Balanced firmly towards the hops with good up front bitterness. Delivers all the way from sip to swallow, good body, very drinkable. Quite like this beer and would buy again.
