4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Usually like IPA better, but this had a nice sweet aroma. Appearance was clear golden. Taste sweet at first then finished with a slight bitter on the palate. Overall a great easy drinking pale ale.

Small sample, on tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Deep golden colour, large head. Lovely hoppy and spicy aroma and flavour - an excellent beer, as far as I could tell. Will rerate as soon as I get a bigger sample (had to drive tonight).

Zapach jest świetny, liczi (dużo), cytrusy i karmel. Smak to płaska goryczka, ale daje radę.

Very nice offering from Left Hand. Subtle aromas give way to a light floral taste with hints of malt and pine. Exceptional mouthfeel and good bitter finish. The perfect drink for Poker Night.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Served a clear, light copper-orange body with a scant, wispy white head and some steady if sporadic effervescence. Sheet-like lacing on the way down.
Smell: Modest nose scented of lightly toasted bread, caramel, spicy rye, citrus fruits, and wet, soggy grains.
Taste: Lightly bready malts, lightly sweet and with some touches of grain, caramel, and zestful rye malt. Lightly earthy hops also delivering some fruity touches of oranges and lemons. Sufficiently bitter. A skosh more lemon on the drying finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Well-balanced and keenly drinkable, without ever giving too much or too little maltiness or aimlessly wandering into being an IPA with excessive bitterness. A good replacement of Jackman’s. Good-bye and good riddance, Jack.

12oz bottle. Bright gold pour with no head. Aroma is sweet and citrus with bright fruit notes. Flavors are much the same. A really interesting and tasty pale. Delicious and under-rated.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours hazy gold/amber with a small creamy white head. Very interesting sweet fruity and flowery hop aroma with some green apples as well. Taste is moderate sweet and bitter fruity hops, reminds me of the good british ipa, nothing over the top, just good all over.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Mild floral citrus aroma. A mild hazy yellow with a touch of amber.Citrus and bitter taste that finishes off clean and dry. Has a pepper rye feeling in the middle. Hint of malt sweetness. A little different than is typical for this style.
