4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home in London. Pours lightly hazy yellow-gold with a fine, creamy white froth crown. Loads of pithy citrus in the snout - which I LOVE - along with a good dose of fresh urine; yep, I love that too. Light sweet flavor with a delicate, restrained malt base, accented with further pithy citrus like lemon, tangerine and grapefruit, some pee, a bit of mineral dryness, slight straw and pine needles. Light bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Super clean to finish, fairly dry, more citrus pith and piss, minerals, dry pale malts. Outrageously drinkable beer. One of the better Partizan pales I can recall.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from ?Jacks? Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon, consumed at home Friday 20th December 2013 Pours straw yellow with considerable haziness and a large clean white head, looks bloody great. Vibrant nose, its fresh and clean with some freshly laundered clothes left to waft in the wind sat within a lemon grove, you may think I am talking bollocks but that was the image it conjured up when I sniffed. Fresh in mouth as well, refreshing vibrant (again) and wonderfully gulpable. A little soft, the carbonation is nice, a little lemon meringue on the tongue then it starts to get dry. Its jolly good for a pale ale, lovely. A8 A5 T8 P4 Ov16 4.1

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle from Ales By Mail, bottled on 30-08-2013. Pours a canary yellow/light orange colour, pretty hazy, with a bright white head. Aroma of mandarin, tropical fruits, herbal hops, lots of resiny and some notes of sulphur as well. Very piney and citrusy forward during the taste, extremely dry finish. The bitterness is pretty mild and attenuated making it very balanced also thanks to an average carbonation and a weaker, almost watery body. Refreshing, quaffable and definitely pleasent enough.
