3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a very tasty, refreshing beer. A very pleasant but subtle hop aroma and a lovely light amber colour. Good head and perfect carbonation. It’s not a flavour explosion, but it has a perfect mild balance, with just enough hops and a spicy finish, and a real creamy medium-light body. One of the best session pale ales I have had. Spot on.

On tap. Pours amber with a medium pillowy head. Neutral nose. Some hops, some malts, but really only hinted at. Clearly a pale ale nonetheless.

Had this years ago, and dont remember it being this bad. No depth of character and unpleasant aftertaste.

Good to have a pint or two, loses flavour and bite after too many. Quite nice and readily available.

345ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours clear gold, thick, rocky white head. Oranges and cream on the aroma, some earthy notes too. Taste is more orange, light caramel, bit watery though. Bitter on the finish, but a bit thin. OK.

Big cirtus. Just like it says. First of all, very unique aroma is shocking me. Later I realized this is a big citrus. Feel woody. But not my style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at the RHCC, cheers to Nate, 06/09/14.
Copper golden with a moderate off white covering.
Nose is light citric peel, subtle hops, grass, bread dough, bitter orange.
Taste follows, less depth.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close with light hop bitterness.
So so APA, the hops and trops don’t shine!
