3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light copper with a soapy white head. Aromas of faint hops but not very strong. Flavor is a bit on the malty side for a pale ale but it still has a decent hop presence. HIghly drinkable and nothing offensive at all, but it also doesn’t have anything that really grabs my attention. Solid offering but a tad forgettable.

Poured a orange-brown with thick head that faded down to light lacing. Aroma is hops with some mild citrus notes. Taste is malty with a smooth start and finish. Very much liked this.

Bottle. Smells sweet and floral. Pours amber brown and a little translucent with a light head that dissipates mostly after a few seconds. Taste starts a little bitter, then sweet, and finishes clean. Very good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reasonably clear orange color with a filmy head with good retention, lots of lacing and low carbonation. Nose consists of Floral Hops, baked bread, yeasts, pale malts and a slight toffeeness. Flavor is floral hops, mild piney notes, dry hops, yeasts and a slight malty backbone. Body is on the lighter side with a thin body and mild to moderate carbonation. Pretty good pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Uit het flesje gedronken kan dus niet beoordelen hoe hij eruit ziet. Gekrit en frisse geur.
De smaak is dezelfde als de geur. Fris gekruid. Niet zwaar bitter maar goed niveau. Een perfecte pal ale voor in de zomer.
