3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Deep gold with a slight, off-white head and moderate fizz. Aroma of pineapple and grapefruit with a touch of caramel. Flavour had plenty more tropical fruit and a dryish finish. Good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a dark cloudy amber with plenty of sediment. Unfortunately had an enormous white head - way too big. Big mixed citrus aroma, sweet too, and inviting. The taste - WOW, absolutely scrumptious. Sweet well-rounded citrus rather than other pale’s bitterness or sourness with a good balance of bready yeastiness. Long balanced dry finish. Full body with lively carbonation that says "hey, you’re drinking me". Think is the best pale ale I’ve ever had. Pity about the head.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a light golden straw with some hazing. Large billowy white head falls away relatively quickly. Flavours are quite subdued. Some citrus, biscuity malt a little yeast and very faint chlorine. Not to the point of being offensive but definately there. Flavours are pretty straight foward and not overly memorable to be honest. Some grain and the lightest resiny hop finish. OK

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Bright clear amber colour with a loose pillow of snowy white foam. There is some citrus in the aroma and the label says spicey but I could not detect this. Sweet in the mouth with a refreshing flavour.

Wayyy too fizzy, was burping after every sip. Foams up over the glass like dishwashing detergent has been added, and subsides almost as quickly. Tastes like pineapple, quite nice hoppy taste but can’t enjoy because of the bubbles.

A tasty beer but varies from store to store. Exploded out of my nose upon sipping. I also tried their Whale Ale. It also exploded like a poorly trained male porn star. Over carbonated? I think so.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a yellow colour with a very tall frothy white head. Aroma is sweet, citrusy fruits and some spices. Taste is also sweet citrus with some light biscuit, toffee and caramel notes leading to a subtle, well balanced bitter finish. Good job!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Initially I liked this beer, but as it went on it was harder and harder work and as commented by others it is more than a bit over carbonated which is a shame. Pout is muddy orange with a foamy persistent white head. Aroma is a bit of spice and citrus which follows through to the palate once you chew through the bubbles. Finish is quite dry and long. Nice, but not Murray’s greatest (which is still better than most)

3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a golden colour with a very hoppy aroma. Very tasty and dominated by the hops with a little honey. Angry man’s pale ale ( formally nirvana) is a very good beer all year round ( especially in summer) and is a great sessional beer
