3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2012
33 cl bottle @ some restaurant in Brussels. Rated on 13.4.2009
Aroma has sweetish malt with caramel. Flavour has caramel with hints of salt. I was hoping a good pale ale to get a pause from all of those Belgian ales – but this appeared to be rather far from a pale ale. And had even some elements from a Belgian Ale...

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.

330ml bottle. Pale amber coloured with a slight head. Aroma of grassy hops with some sweet malts. The flavour began with some honey and citrus before a hoppy, dry finish. Good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark orange, initially large creamy head, which quickly subsides. Nose like many pale ales, but fruitier. Taste full of malts, but with a fruity body, followed by a deliciously sharp, bitter aftertaste with hints of spice. Overall, very nice for an English pale ale; more taste than what is usual.
