3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I thought this was a pretty nice brew. Similiar to a stronger amber ale or an IPA. Has a nice golden yellow colour, bit of a hop aroma. Flavour is a bit hoppy.

This is a beer for hops fans! Color is a lovely dark honey brown with a nice thick head. Aroma is invitingly hoppy - one good whiff and you know this is no wussy brew. Flavor is strongly hoppy, and mouthfeel is zingy and tingly. I like hoppy beers, so I found this one to be very enjoyable.

amber appearance with a solid head. nose is hoppier than taste. flavor is of bitter hops with a slight malt character. few complexities. pretty good, not great

Madium citrus hop aroma. Cloudy orange with a large white head. Lots of carbonation. Starts mild ends with a moderate citrus hop bite. A little on the watery side.

by far one of the better canned beers i’ve ever had. some weird creamy mouthfeel to it that would be better without the slight metallic twinge. flavors of orange, LOTS of hops, and some roasted malt and biscuit malt. some carmel and grapefruit.

12oz can. The opportunity to drink a quality beer out of the can was too much for me so I drank the majority of this from the can, cold. For rating purposes I poured a bit into a glass. Pours a bright copper color with a medium white head. Decent lacing. Smells hoppy but there’s a touch of something unpleasant in there. Can’t put my finger on it. Thankfully it doesn’t translate to the taste. Tastes hoppy, smooth, incredibly well-balanced, crisp and refreshing. This is about the definition of an everyday pale ale. I could drink this all the time.

Draught at Oliver twist, Stockholm. pours out in a clear amber colour with a rich creamy white foam. Nice grapefruity hop aroma with touches of flowers, honey, all-spice and caramel. dryish hoppy flavour of grapefruit and lemon-rind with subtle notes of caramel. Bitter grapefruity finish. A hoppy and tasty take of the style.

Amber pour. Similar creamy head that is in Gordon. Aroma is some herbal soapy hops and molasses sugar. Very drinkable. The hops don’t hit you like you’d expect, but then again, this is a pale ale and not an IPA. Very well balanced. This might fall slightly behind SNPA, but it is still very solid for the style.
