Rosslew (297) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2014
Pours with very heavy foam. Be careful on the start. Aroma of orange peel, grapefruit, possibly apricot. Tart bitterness in taste but it very fruity. No issues in mouthfeel and citrus right to the end. Big fan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Citrusy and floral hoppy aroma, hints of lemon, lavender, floral yeasty overtones, a touch of urinal stone, some lemon biscuit. Taste is citrusy hoppy, notes of lemon, a touch of lemon zest, some lemon biscuit, a mineral touch. Relatively simple. Excellent, mingled caramel-lemon taste, very refreshing, drinkable.

Nice, big and long lasting head. Colour- Orange/gold, beer is almost perfectly clear. Aroma- Caramel and wheat malts and fruity, citrusy and tropical fruits with a hint of herbal, floral touch. Flavour- Quite the same, hoppy, malty. Quite sweet. Bitternes shows its power in the finish. Overall- Very good example of the style. Refreshing, easy drinking, tasty. Maybe a bit too sweet for me.

Taste of biscuity malts, fruits, nice and strong bitterness, pine needles and citrusfruits. Medium bodied, nicely smooth to drink. Good beer with the great balance of sweetness and bitterness.

BrunoSanchez (162) - Fermo, ITALY - APR 12, 2014
Magnifica interpretazione dello stile pale ale inglese. Bel colore ambrato con schiuma bianca. Aroma resinoso, erbaceo e di miele. In bocca non stanca mai perfettamente equilibrata tra dolcezza del malto e amarezza del luppolo. Finale secco e piacebolmente amaro.
