3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Bertís Bierhuis. The beer has a deep golden color nearly amber color and a nice white head, CO2 level is average. In the aroma tones of hops and some citrus. The taste is dry and bitter, because of the hops. Also tones of spices and in the end are some citrus fruits noticable. The finish is fresh and bitter with a light spiciness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at Blue Boar, Billericay. Brewed exclusively for J D Wetherspoon. Pours a pale amber with a tight creamy off-white head. Hints of malt, white grape, mango and pineapple in the aroma. Medium bodied but smooth and a little creamy over the tongue, a dry bitterness is countered by a subtle floral fruitiness with white grapejuice and mango flavours. The bitterness re-emerges in the aftertaste with those dry fruity flavours playing in the background. Overall quite a satisying beer, the floral fruitiness is delightful in itís delicate nature and a nice counter to the creamy bitterness. No one flavour dominates making a pleasant balance to a beer more usually found in bottled form.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smell: Earthy, peppery hops, tartness.A bit musty, too.
Mouthfeel: Thick, creamy, oily.
Taste: Sweet, remniscent of caramel. Some citrus bits. Soft alcohol warmth.
Finish: Peppery, mildly bitter.
Overall: Not the typical kind of pale ale. A bit too malty, but characterful nonetheless.

Appearance with amber color and low foam.
Aroma of toasted malt (caramel) and herbal hops.
Very sweet taste that prevails in contrast to the hops.
The 5.8% alcohol is barely noticeable.
A good Pale Ale.
