D’un bel orange ambré, la MacTavish s’écoule inéluctablement du verre laissant comme unique trace une belle dentelle de Bruges. Alors que quelques bulles s’échappent du liquide, des effluves de houblon vert, de terre ancestrale et d’épices se mélangent aux traditionnels parfums de noisette et de caramel des ales anglaises. En bouche, fraîcheur et acidité s’accordent aux saveurs maltées de biscuit et de caramel. Le houblon laisse alors une bonne amertume et ne confère sa verdure qu’en rétro-olfaction. La finale est sèche, subite et totalement désaltérante.

Orangée avec un col moyen de mousse blanc. Nez parfumé d’agrumes et de houblons. Goût d’agrumes, de houblons, résineux et herbacé. Très belle amertume en bouche, tout au long de la gorgée, et une finale sèche et désaltérante.

Color naranja turbio, espuma persistente. Aroma cítrico y frutal. Muy equilibrada en boca, muy lupulada, cítricos, frutas tropicales, cuerpo medio y carbonatación perfecta. Final seco y moderadamente amargo. Excelente y muy refrescante.

somewhat malty and hoppy, but somehow is easy drinking. Stronger finish though.

Orange hazy color, small white head. Fruity, aromatic nose with yeast and mango. Light to medium-bodied. Piney, mango fruity, pale malty flavor. Sweetish, decent bitterness. Something English also here. Balanced.

Bonito color dorado, turbia. Bonita espuma que deja siempre una capa presente. Aroma muy floral, pino, cítricos... típico del estilo. En boca medio gas y buen balance. Base de caramelo y continuación de los aromas. Transición hacia un final seco. Muy bebible. Muy agradable.

Une bonne pale ale du style traditionnel anglais. De bons aromes de houblons classique sur une base maltée riche, propre et équilibrée!

Si presenta nel bicchiere di un bel giallo dorato, la schiuma è abbondante, cremosa, candida e dalla buona aderenza. Al naso è citrica, buccia d’arancia, limone, pompelmo; aroma di luppolo e percettibili sentori erbacei. In bocca è ben luppolata, con caratteristiche agrumate in prima linea; il gusto è ancora citrico, fruttato, floreale. Buona la carbonazione, corpo leggero-medio e rinfrescante; il finale è secco, amarognolo e dissetante.

Stoned99 (542) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2015
600ml bottle from Pasquier. Brewed on the 19th of Feb. Feb Aroma: citrus, herbacy and earthy, some spices. App: cloudy golden, small white head with a circle of big bubbles in the middle, no real lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, creamy feel, resinous, light clean bitter finish. Overall: A good APA but unfortunately lacks a bit of fruitiness to my tastes but could be because it’s 3 months old. I also prefer my APA crisp rather than clean but still enjoyed it

Bottle from Wine Emporium 100515. Clear golden colour with a mountain of sort white foam, looks like a scoop of ice cream. Aroma is very piney with a smooth easy to drink flavour. Great name and great packaging.

Pours a hazy caramel topped by about a finger of fluffy white head showing good retention and leaving medium-sized chunks along the side of the glass. The nose is orange peel, lemon, some grapefruit and bready caramel in the back. The taste is bold and hoppy with the citrusy features at the forefront. They all drop to a dry low and make you think it’s over, but it all swirls back to create an unexpected bready finish. The hops are bold, but the malts get to shine too. Decent carbonation and semi-oily mouthfeel, a pretty good APA. Cheers!
