Bottle. Golden pour with off white head and soapy lace. Citrus hops and grainy malts on the nose and tongue with a mild dry bitter finish for the style. Nothing hits you over the head. Light-medium body with a spiritely mouthfeel. An easy drinking lawn mower beer.

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.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.
