3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a nice Golden colour
Aroma. smells of citrus mainly
Taste. Very piney, backed by a slight sweetness.
Overall. On entry this beer is very good, but it’s lack of complexity and flavour really let it down, still quite a good beer none the less, just nothing too special.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
345ml bottle Bb March 2015
Pale amber body, good clarity, small white head.
Decent enough aroma; spicy, woody hops, touch of passion fruit & citrus, a touch of biscuity, light caramel malt underneath.
Medium body & carbonation.
Palate delivers a modest amount of woody, piney, citrusy American hops with a smidgeon of pale malt to balance. Restrained bitterness on a somewhat short finish.
A reasonable APA, certainly far more impressive than the golden & pale ales. Would be nice to see this as a full time offering to the JS range

I remember this beer being pretty bloody solid in years gone by. Decided to grab one the other day and it was nowhere near as good as I remember. This one is really peachy and toffee forward. Butterscotchy even. Not great

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2014 Clear amber to copper colour with pillowy white head. Aroma of tropical fruits like pineapple and mango. Decent caramel malt backing. Thin oily body. Taste is quite balanced but not enough bitterness in my opinion. The finish is clean, but not biting

Copper pour with a thin pale brown head. Floral, citrus aroma with sweet malt underneath. Sweet taste at first then lemon, a little bitterness to finish with slight toffee note.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2014 Bottle. Copper with a cm of pale beige head. Aroma of pine, kumquat, caramel, some grapefruit and pepper. Carbonation pleasantly moderate - ie low for a macro. Very sweet with loads of caramel. Fruit and pine really struggle to cut through and only pepper really adorns the bitterness at the end. OK, hops doing pretty well considering I caught this later than ideal.  A few more grew on me a bit.

Bottle from Milton Cellars April 2014. Solid pale ale with a good balance of maltiness and hoppiness. Looks good when poured into a glass.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - pours amber with a thin white head. Pine resin, nettles , oily aroma. Taste up front is caramel before a tempered dry finish. Medium palate. The taste is a lot more balanced than the aroma suggests, compared to some APA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Light amber medium head. Floral aroma - sweet lemon, fruit, flowers.
Meduim malt presence with some biscuit carrying pine needle, delicate acacia and, what, a kinda rockmelony fruitiness with a slightly bitter conclusion. Medium mouth-feel but nothing IPA-ish. Interesting hoppy complexity while still being drinkable. Worth a try.
