2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
0,50 bottle at Peschiera del Garda-Italy. Pours extremely cloudy yellow bright, huge frothy white cap. Nose: citric hops, a bit of pine needles. Mouth: kind of confusing but ok, grainy with a strong American style orientation. Far too bitter and herbal in the end. Inoffensive

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle pours a clear pale copper with a huge off-white head. Dry caramel malt with grassy dry hops. I can really taste that German malt, has some faded grassy hops. Maybe slightly better than your average German macro lager.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Man, that’s a huge head of foam! I see a cloudy yellow gold liquid underneath.
A mix of hop smells I get. Grass, pine, a bit of citrus and, that smell of spelt malt that I’ve come across before.
The taste is somewhat hoppy, grass stands out I think, the spelt malt, as usual, adds an almost vegetal character to it. Not much sweetness to this Pale Ale.
Nice mouthfeel, easy to drink.
I like this but it does take some getting used to.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: The aroma has light caramel, fruit, and herbal/spicy notes. It pours a hazy (bordering on cloudy) dark orange with a large creamy off-white head that has great retention. There is a lot of soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of caramel and faint citrus. The finish has some moderate herbal and spicy notes with some light lemon peel.

Babyfood banana and honey. Clear amber, thick sticky head. Honey flavor, awfully metallic, tangy. Soft carbonation, thin. Has a very British feel, and not much in the way of a recognizable hop presence.

Bottle from Beer world Kingston.... A nice lightly cloudy all day drinking ale. The pleasant hop alternates from yeast to hop and hop to yeast dominance several times during the delightful time frame of consumption. too bad its so damn pricey per bottle.

Bottle @ home picked up at Mile High Liquor Denver. Pours a bit hazy, golden orange appearance with a nice, full khaki head. Quite potent, spicy and fresh, herbal, chewy herbal yeasty, just a touch citrusy aroma. Carbonation is a bit strong and zippy. Potent grassy, very herbal, fairly dry grainy flavor. Maybe a bit of citrus, but mostly a grassy, herbal flavor. Interesting and pretty tasty.
