3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle (Viisi Pennia, Helsinki) - shared by mjs - thanks!
Bold orange, brief tight off-white head. Pleasant sweet caramelly fruity hops, and a bit zesty, in the aroma. A bit dull and watery in the palate, some gentle carbonation crispens it up. Simple sweet caramelly barley, simple gentle detail-less hops - just sweet and fruity. Quite nondescript apart from the buttered bread finish. OK bitter tingle too. A bit boring, to be honest. Should not be in the "English"-anything style, this is just middle of the road "American".

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft... Pre-GABF ’06 at Falling Rock Tap House, Denver... Mostly clear, deep golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. Easygoing nose... I’m not picking up much other than a touch of biscuity malt. Very well balanced in flavor with biscuity malt as well. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Crisp, lightly bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2006 12oz bottle acquired in trade with beerhandy (thanks!). Poured a medium and slightly cloudy amber color with a larger sized off white head. Fresh hop aromas dominate (flowers and oranges) with some toasted malts. Tastes of oranges, caramel, and flowers. Tastes all on the lighter side compared to the aroma. With the strong hop aroma, I was expecting more (but this is an English Pale Ale). This was quite drinkable though. Body on the thinner side.
