3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled dated 20/05/06 expiration. This one poured a nice amber color with a decent head and some good lacing. The aroma was definitely hoppy, but enjoyable after a run of Belgian beers. A mildly grapefruit malty base (may be my first English pale ale with that aspect) was accompanied by a nice (not too strong) hoppy finish of pine trees and flowers. Very drinkable and enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Clear amber with a big white head. Malty aroma. Flavours are rather more bitter though well-balanced by sweet maltiness with hints of pepper. Not bad.

Bottle. Small white but lasting head. Clear amber body, what a beauty ! Lovely barlay aroma. Proper bitterness. Rather high alcohol percentage for a pale ale but it suits it.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, alc. 5.8% (BB 08/2006)
Copper brown, decent creamy white head, some lace. Metallic malty, toffeeish aroma, some skunky hops somewhere there. Toffee malty is also the flavor with woody touch. In the finish some Kentish hops, which leaves semi-sweet, hoppy aftertaste. Decent EPA:

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice, easy drinking Pale Ale, that is brewed in Belgium. Not as much bite as some Pale’s, but very refreshing and enjoyable on this nice spring-like day.
