2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
It’s ale and it’s pale. It’s citrusy, but doesn’t kick at all. And since there isn’t too much hoppy character, fact that the maltyness is neither complex, interesting or with a presence, makes the beer kind seem lacking. A drinking beer if you don’t pay attention to drinking, but at a heavy price.

Aroma: flowers, resin, some grass. Appearance: clear amber, medium, creamy white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: hops intensify, getting very bitter in the long finish. Overall: OK APA, but nothing too exciting. Pint at Mother Kelly’s, Bethnal Green.

Typical pale ale, without any fuzz. Plain and simple malt and bitterness. Richer than a lager, but not by much.

Keg at Draft House. Hazy amber, still, small foamy white head. Aroma is sour caramel. Body is medium, low carbonation. Taste is, again, a bit sour with some tangy citrus, toffee malt, astringent resin. OK. My 100th American Pale Ale rating.

Bottled. Pours clear deep golden with an average, lacing off-white head. Aroma of citrus, peach, piney notes and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and decent bitter. Lightb to medium bodied, watery to oily texture and average carbonation. A nice and crisp APA.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can bought from Draft House Charlotte Street. Not much aroma, just a little light and malty. Flavour fairly nondescript - would like to try this on keg for a comparison.

Buonissima questa APA norvegese! Ambrata con schiuma bianca. Al naso note di caramello e biscotti. In bocca corpo medio e bilanciata molto bene tra amaro e dolce. Il sapore ricorda più una ale inglese che una americana con sentori biscottati, resinosi e caramellosi finendo elegantemente amara. Birra davvero beverina!!!
