Super malty pale ale. More like a Ed ale than a pale. Smells malty and a little fruity. Had this one at home out of a bottle.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Clear amber with cm thick beige head.
Aroma: Lemon, note of marzipan, marmalade, notes of biscuity malt, light caramel and a weird musky chemical subtle note.
Taste: Low/medium sour and bitterness, low sweetness and a light pepperiness.
Palate: Thin fairly smooth texture, light body, low carbonation, dry abrupt bitter, lightly sour citrus, peppery, malty finish.
Comments: Ok but the musky chemical note detracted from the aroma and taste, a bit more carbonation would have been good.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
79p bottle from Treacle B&M. Orange gold with a good firm neck of mousse. Reasonable nose with peach iced tea, cedar and honey. Tepid peach flan in sponge casing attempts muted by vapidity and smothering Crystal malt. Finishes with an unappetising chalky calamine note- again the Crystal. Toffee hints. Not unpleasant but not my cup of tea either.

Appearance- light amber, hazy, frothy head which diminishes instantly. Aroma is lots of orange, tangerine, pine hints, very fruity. Taste- smooth, malts, medium mouthfeel, hop bitterness in the background, juicy fruit, bit of orange zest. Nice and drinkable.

355ml bottle bought last July at Sourced Market, St Pancras in London. Two finger sized, near white head, fine retention and lacing. Cloudy golden body. Grassy hops on the nose. Flavoured with hops promoting pineapples and peaches. Bittersweet fruity endnotes. Smooth and rather easy going (shared with Finn, Tromsø 05.03.2014).
