2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2013 Flaska inköpt i Cardiff. Sur doft med inslag av bröd. Lika sur-besk i smaken. Intetsägande och tråkig ale som inte lämnar några bestående minnen.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl Bottle from M&S A’dam. Clear golden orange colour, white head. Aroma is quite pungent and hoppy, citrus, cat piss, hint of mint, still all typical Golden Ale style so not very nice imho, grainy. Flavour is light-sweet, grainy, citrus, slight cloying fruitiness, decent bitter finish. Light-bodied, a tiny bit fizzy. OK.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2013 Clean golden color, big white head. Aroma of malt, floral hops, citrus, strawberry and tropical fruits. Taste is similar, dry sweet with good bitterness. Light body and lively carbonation. Overall, ice refreshing IPA, well balanced, but surprisingly I had quite bad feeling next morning after only one bottle.
