2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Asda. Bright gold. Barely a head. Aroma is all buttery, malty nonsense. A bare trace of hop. Taste is sweet, then bitter. Hard to elaborate on. Chewy palate. Finishes metallic bitter.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at a JDW pub in Manchester,
Pours light amber with diminishing white head. No aroma to speak of. Taste is dry with cereal flavour and small amounts of grapefruit. Hops come in hard on a long, bitter finish. I felt the overall flavour was let down by its overtly alcoholic nature. I’d have enjoyed this more at less than 5.2% ABV, but still a decent beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bb?, courtesy of Sheffield D&M, ta. "Hand crafted Pale Ale.", not "A Strong Pale Ale". The Roger Protz tasting notes quoted on the label is near-spot on, apart from the biscuit malts which have run a tad thin and fizzed. Floral citrus aromas, "perfumy", earthier lemongrass notes make a brisk, zippy appearance in taste, quickly turning resinous in taste, bitter finish. Bright clean quencher with a certain UK subtlety, relinquished towards shorted-breathed US hop clarity.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the White Lion, Bridgnorth. Mid gold. Apple, astringency, slight tropical fruit cocktail aroma. Bitter taste with sweet edges. Key lime pie, pineapple. Fuller palate than would normally be expected with a pale ale. This is an iconic ale, and while better than most does not quite live up to the almost reverential reputation. Damn good though.

Cask at Fat Cat. Pale gold colour. Good strong aromas of tropical fruits and pungent hops. Flavour of citrus with moderately bitter hops. This is a great beer and one of the best pale ales around.
