3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Marin. Clear rich gold pour with a small white head. Caramel malt, a touch of hop, and kind of a strange hint of cigarette smoke in the taste.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer pours a very cloudy orange w/ a small head. Nice and hoppy, piny and a bit on the light side. Its overall character is rather mild to the point of maybe being a bit watery. It’s also slightly undercarbonated but still a decent brew overall.

Tap @ Porky’s: Clear gold with a small white head. Strong malt backbone with a minor hop finish. Thin body. Pretty good, akin to Sierra Nevada.

30-SEP-2011, bottle @Ulkløbben @Morten.
Clear golden with orange hue and a fluffy almost white head.
Hoppy nose with grape fruit.
Taste is hoppy as well but also quite malty sweet.
Very creamy with a long bitter aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber pours clear copper with near white head. The modest aroma emits some sweet malts that are thinly ringed with caramel and vague hops. The taste has bitterness that is nearly sharp and it is vaguely spicy in nature and then picks up faint floral notes as the malts come to the surface. It remains sharp and bitter enough and a bit resiny to keep away from the sweet floralness that I really don’t care for. Tasty Pale here that wants to sit firmly undistinguished in the middle of the Pale pack.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big bottle, purchased @Kihoskh, København, enjoyed at home. Tall, dense and fluffy, mostely lasting blond head. Body is misty, gold to pale amber colored. Medium strong, floral and sweet tropical fruity hops to the nose. Also a whiff of honey-scented pale malts. Quite sweet-flavored. More fruity than malty. Exotic fruits and sweet citrus, restrained sweetish malt base. Fruit-cake and faint honey. Subtle bitterness. Thinnish in the mouth. Nice creamy texture, though. A more than decent APA. Highly quaffable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle. clear orange, smooth thick offwhite head.
crisp but still sweet aroma of flowery hops, orange frut hops, a little grapefruity hops, and a good sweet malty balance. Very impressively fullbodied aroma at only 5.5% abv.
flavor is somewhat bitter hoppy, somewhat malty - but lots less full bodied than the aroma indicated. hop flavor is mostly bitter, with a flowery note. not much sweet malts.
