3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Canned sample. Pale orange in colour with medium (and soft) carbonation. Aromas are of tangerine, pale malt, and toasted nuts. More mild sweet citrus and toasted grain in the mouth along with a hint of caramel. Soft bitterness, but clean finishing. Not bad overall.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Ambrée léger avec une petite mousse blanche qui rétréci rapidement. L’arôme du malt rôti et léger. Le goût est du malt, pas vraiment d’houblon (une surprise pour un bière de Phillips), et un peu des céréales. C’est un peu creux et pas vraiment bonne.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap, brewery. Pours a clear amber body with a small fizzy white head that faded quickly. The nose is toasty malt, a little husky, minimal hops. The flavor is fairly dry, toasty and a bit husky, minimal bitterness. A little boring and bland, but about on par for the style. Light to medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Not bad, pretty run-of-the-mill stuff, but no flaws.

Can. Deep amber pour, decent foamy head. Aroma is alright, with some decent fruity, floral and malty notes. Flavour is fruity, notes of pear, apple and light citrus, but overly sweet in my opinion, with very little hops. Not as crisp and refreshing as one would hope for the style.

Nothing extraordinary. But I've had worse. A pint of it was fine, but then I switched to something else.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Horrific. Had a sip of this the other night (my wife ordered it), and almost spit it out. Aroma is floral, hoppy, slight bit of mint pungency. Decent fluffy head, nice amber colour, looks good. Taste is typical of Phillips - hops, hops, hops...kind of like a milder version of some IPAs. Palate was almost medicinal, nauseatingly oily, with an awful sickening hop aftertaste. If the palate-aspect of this beer hadn’t of been so bizarrely "slick", I might have been able to choke this down, but as it is, I just can’t do it. If you like hops, go for it. I’ll pass.
