3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
19th June 2013
Hazy gold beer, little white head. Smooth airy palate, semi dry with fine carbonation. Smooth malt base, thin but creamy. Nice hops - pithy orange and lemon with mellow grapefruit and a whisper of skunk. Finishes airy and dry. Tasty!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home in London - picked up at the brewery. Pours clear gold, highly effervescent, with a large, pure white foam head. The aroma holds a lot of fresh and clean citrus fruits, tangy tangerine and mandarin orange, some pee, hay. Light to medium sweet flavor with nicely balanced bitter citrus rind, some juicy lemon and tangerine, mellow flinty minerals, some pine needles, just enough sweet pale malts. Light bodied with average carbonation. Crisp and super clean to finish with a bit more piss, nice tangy tangerine, some lightly dried pale malts, faint resinous pine, hints of grapefruit. Delicious. Wonderfully drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Sourced Market I guess as it was with a load of other beers from there. Don’t you just love it when you are going through a box of beer and find something you didn’t know you had? Clear pale gold until a little yeast went in. Lasting white head. Lots of both hops on the aroma. Simcoe really comes through. Very tasty APA. Not overly bitter, not overly full in mouth. Disappears quickly so must be decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home, from Realale.com, 14/09/13. Happy to have tracked this one down at last !
Almost clear light goldenwith a good sized froty off white head.
Nose is light grapefruit, juicy hops, touch of mango, faint soapy backnote.
Taste comprises juicy hops, light pine, orange pith, mineral bite, mango, graefruit, toasted malts.
Medium bodied, a little overcarbonated and prickly on the palate which lets the overall drinkability down a little.
A really decent APA - just a litte overcarbonated for my liking.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home (didn’t even realise this was a new one until it was almost done!). It pours golden with a tiny white head and small suspended particles. The nose is yoghurt, milk, pithy citrus, grapefruit, apricot, earth and barnyard. The taste is earth, zesty orange, lemon rind, pithy, grapefruit, pine, light toast and hay with a very dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate+ carbonation. Not quite up to the regular Partizan standard and it ain’t a looker either. Saying that it’s still a decent APA!

330ml bottle from Sourced Market, St Pancras. Pale yellow body, unclear. Lasing white lacing-head. Inviting aroma of peaches and mango. Fresh flavours of tropical fruits on a backbone of pale malts. Grapefruit bitterness to the ending. A pretty nice one (shared with Richard and Stefan, University of Leeds 01.07.2013).

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy bright yellow colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of floral hops, grass, grapefruit and sweet fruits. Flavour is very well balanced with crispy floral hops, grapefruit, mango, grass, juicy pineapple, white grapes, herbs and mellow sweetness. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Drinkability couldn’t be better. Excellent balance and this happens to be one of my favourite hop profiles. Partizan rules.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home from the brewery on Saturday. Aroma is lush juicy fruit, lychee and white wine. Pale golden colour, slight haze. Thin persistent white head. Flavour is dusty grainy malt, clean sharp grapefruit bitterness. Hop flavour is less fruity than the aroma. There is a grape skin character in there. Palate is soft medium carbonation, slightly thin. Good beer.
