3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours cloudy light amber with small white head. Aroma of resin, citrus, tropical fruit. Taste is nicely balanced with light caramel malt sweetness and hop bitterness at first before a decently long bitter finish. Light, smooth body and fairly low carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2013 Draught @Brevinga alus salons,
Very good pale ale with grass-hop aroma, medium to full body, excellent appearance with hazy, cloudy golden-orange color and white top - rocky foam with row after row on the glass edge. Very good bitterness, very drinkable, not complex palate. After one glass it comes very hard not to have another one :)

Aroma is citrus, fruit, a hint of astringency and and tea heavy yeast. The flavor is citrus, a hint of spices, a blast of malts and then a dryish/bitter finish.

Tap at Ale and Hop Barcelona. Unclear orange amber with white head. Delicious fresh hoppy aroma, grapefruit, mango and peach. Similar tropical fruit flavour with a peppery yeast note. Refreshing and easy to drink. Very tasty stuff

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a sudsy off white head that settles to a film. Aroma is sweet caramel and stale cardboard hops with subtle spice. Taste is all of the above, but shows well past its prime hops and paper with subtle spice and pepper. Palate is thin to medium with a chalky dry finish. I think this was probably outstanding in its prime. I get awesome malt flavors, but the hop profile has completely disappeared!

Pretty shure this sat on room temp shelf quite a number of years,after it being on sale,i may have to be the one to clear them out.
Its a nice blood orange color with good head creamy with lacing,hazy from pouring the whole bottle.
Aroma has nice biscuit,hops with butterscotch maybe diacytal from an english yeast maybe floral/spice mildly ,pretty pleasant overall.
Taste is mirrored but with buiscuity mild tartness but mild english butterscotch/diacytal maybe but with dry mild tartness like a pale ale should be. this does remind me a mix of american/english type pale ale though.Considering the age and storage of this,im impressed how it held up with no off yeasty old taste.pretty nice.Think ill go back and get a few more bottles while they are discounted.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500mL bottle, probably past its prime, pours a musty, dirty with a tall white head. Aroma of stale hops, soap, dirt, cardboard, with some citrusy hop still sort of around. Flavour of wet cardboard, horse, stale hops, some faint citrus hops still around - the store that sold this should not have sold this and I was an idiot for buying this. I’ll rate this generously based on what I perceive the beer to have been during its prime.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Date: February 19, 2012 Mode: Bottle Source: Heritage via BVery Description: Opaque orangish brown pour with minimal head. Aroma is malty/caramel, cardboard and some musky basement thing going on. I think this is well past its prime because taste is not what I am guessing it should have been. Basically a malty sweetness with a very slight bitterness in finish.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 Bottle. Old bottle - $1 discounted, and there was dust on the bottle when I bought it. Ooof - well, here’s what we have here in Feb. 2012. Hazy orange pour with a small soapy white head. Aroma and taste of caramel, cardboard, and some citrus hops. Wish it was fresh.
