3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, at Christianssands Brygghus. It pours a semi-clear golden colour and a small off-white head. The aroma is mostly on the citrusy, piney side, with some malty notes. The flavour too is mostly on the hoppy side. Pine cones, resins and bitterness, with a touch of sweetness towards the end. Medium to full body with pleasant carbonation. One of the best British bitters I’ve had. 130314

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
66cl bottle from Drinkstore, Dublin. Pours hazy amber/orange with thin off-white head; not too much lacing. Aroma gives plenty of lemon and lime, grapefruit, woody notes, slight earthy mustiness, and spruce. Taste hits the palate with a big dose of citrus fruit, some pithy grapefruit, pine resin, woody notes, slight caramel, and some earthy, dirty hop character. Very tasty and assertive. Crisp semi-dry bitter finish with plenty of pine, citrus and earthy hop notes lingering on the palate. Mouthfeel is medium/thin, carb is light. This is a brilliantly refreshing pale ale - another modern English brew that really shows that low ABV does not have to mean dull, drab and tasteless. Full of flavour and highly sinkable.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
75 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 20.03.2010
Aroma is hoppy with citrus, exotic fruits and caramel. Flavour is a bit disappointment after that – it feels a bit thin with toffee, caramel, some fruity hops and biscuits. A bitter in American way.
