2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is all sweet , yep biscuity, malt. Light bodied. First mouthful tastes very malt-driven, but after half a glass a light bitterness starts balancing things out a bit, at the expense of thinning out the mouthfeel just a tad too much for this already light ale. By the last 1/3 of the pint it has settled into its stride and is a good meat’n’potatos beer.

Slightly hoppy aroma. Dark amber colour. Malty biscuity, flavour. Not much head to speak of. Enjoyable aftertaste. A great pale ale that could make a good session beer. Really enjoyable!!!!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
An underrated brew from my experience. Poured a sparkling red-pink with good dense creamy off-white head that lasted the duration. Pleasant citrus aroma of grapefruit with peach. Flavour actually is close to the bottle’s description; caramel malts blending to marmalade-like bitter citrus rind. Lively carbonated on palate and light-medium bodied with good length to the finish. Loved the brew. Refreshing, flavoursome, could drink them all afternoon. And love the large bottle (though prefer not to share).

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice deep and cloudy copper colour with a small, but quality-like white head. Some dry wood, oak and spruce and a hint of caramel on the nose. Flavour is also som wood, together with biscuits and some carrot acctually. Nice bitterness in the finish, not too much. The mouthfeel is soft, and about medium carbonation. Well balanced beer, I really liked, the taste and the balance being the most intruiging side of it.
