3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Impressive three-finger head that leaves nice ring lace on the glass. Hazy, neutral amber color. Head dies slowly.
Extreme caramel aroma; reminds me of cotton candy. No hop; no alcohol to the nose.
Mostly malty with lots of biscuity and grainy flavors. Light hop shows up on the swallow and the aftertaste. Very full bodied for the style. Moderate carbonation.
In the end, there’s too much candy (but still not sweet) to this beer.

Fairly refreshing but simple. Gold and clear with a small white head. Quite carbonated, some decent hops up front, very little aftertaste. Good to drink on a hot day.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 17, 2015 On Tap at Jimmy’s Culpeppers. Aroma is lightly floral. Color is a nice, clear, reddish copper with minimal head that dissipates pretty quickly. Taste is lightly sweet. Body is light to medium and relatively thin with average carbonation. Overall a solid if unspectacular beer. Very drinkable.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not a very good apa. Lot of malts, hint of caramel, something not right, just few notes of hops. Drinkable

Orange, hazy pour would a good white head and lacing. Malty caramel, bread, orange peel, pine, slight coriander. Long, dry hoppy finish. Enjoyable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
clear amber colour, 1 inch of yellowish off-white head; aroma of tropical fruits, grass, some floral notes and hints of vegetables; taste of tropical fruity hoppiness and bready maltiness; surprisingly great APA - I expected much less based on its rating

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Amber body. Medium white head. Grass, biscuit, hop, malt, sulphur, boiled vegetables, cereal (oats?). Bittersweet. Dry finish. Boring and uninteresting.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fleeting head, amber in color with an escaping bitterness and a mild kiwi aroma. Nothing is glaringly wrong with this beer but nothing stands out either. Expect it to be drinkable but unremarkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at beer place in Gothenburg and previously on Hawaii. A good pale ale, a little sweet but well balanced overall.
