3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Exceptionally clear dark amber body. Fruity malt aroma. Sweet and syrupy, with some toffee-apple-like fruitiness. Mildly hoppy at the end. Attractive but a little dull and cloying. Way too sweet for the style and for me.

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.
