3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer pours a slightly hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma has some wheat notes, as well as some grass, lemon and a bit of orange. The flavor is similar. There is a lot of wheat, caramel and biscuit malt notes, as well as some white pepper and orange peel. I get only a slight amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good looking brew, tannish orange and mostly clear with rising bubbles and a great 1.5 finger white fluffy head and good lacing.
Aroma is great! Crisp and spicy hops are very up front. Pepper and citrus, some earthy malts, and a little fruit.
Flavor is also quite good. Very hoppy for a pale ale, this could easily be an IPA from all the hops flavor, but it’s not quite as bitter. Earthiness and peppery spices again make a showing, along with some citrus and a little biscuit malt.
Body is pretty rich and full for a typical pale ale, yet drinkability is maintained. An earthy hop bitterness finishes it off.
Overall this is a very likeable beer and I’m glad I took the chance and bought a whole sixer of it. I will now have to try more beers from this brewery!

On tap at Petrol Station. Pours golden. All sorts of grassy herbaciousness, with some citrus as well. Reminds me of Lost Gold. Easy to drink and pretty clean finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Plae golden pour, decent white head. Citrus hops in the nose, substantial, but not overpowering. Tangy bitter. Piney/citrus hops drive the middle to an almost resin finish, but still balanced. Good,

Okay, last question. Who is your favorite Backstreet Boy?
Oh! The little rat-faced one.
No, no, Nick! He’s so good to his mother.
According to this, you’re both idiots.

Central Market bottle marked best before 01.01.13. Nice golden bronze color with a medium, foamy white head. Odd aroma that has some metallic bitterness and caramel malt dominating. Nice flavor though. I’m not familiar with Herkules hops but there is a distinct bitterness here.
