3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe, King’s Lynn, 5% ABV
Amber color; medium sized creamy head. Nice aroma of malt and caramel, with resiny hops. The caramel flavor is quite strong, the mouthfeel is dry; the hop is dry, very resiny, with some fruit (bitter oranges); strong bitterness.
Very American style; too much dry caramel flavor and harsh resins.

Draught at The Wharf, Aalborg
Hazy amber color, small creamy head. Another non-IPA, but a Golden Ale with a fair malt and caramel profile and a quite good hopping with mild aromatic components and resins.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask in Porterhouse Covent Garden. Light brown, clear, white head. Nose is citrousy fragrant, pithy orange. Taste is pithy orange juice, bitter orange tang, lots of citrous, but crystal malt caramel. Not really an American pale ale, as the crystal malt character makes the balance a bit wide of the mark.

Bottle. Hazy looking bronze beer with a strong head. The aroma is strongly hopped with a reasonable amount of bitterness, the flavour is very bitter and hopped with a yeasty dry finish. Overall a nice well hopped and bitter beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled) the nose is fatty and syrupy , with sticky hops and woody aftershave intertwined with smells similar to a musty cabin located in an isolated forest .... A large beige head takes over a tulip , above deep ass copper .
rich aromatic hops , sticky and cloying , rather woody and dry too ..faint caramel vibes .rather like the texture of DIPA minus the booze .
