3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2012 Bottle at Brew Dog, Edinburgh. Hazy golden with a beautiful stable white head. Sweet citrusy and floral nose, subdued light malts. Taste is sweet and light malty, citrusy and floral light bitter finish. Watery texture, but medium body. Average carbonation. Tasty welldone, very aromatic. A little too sweet for my palate. 7 4 6 3 12

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from BrewDog AGM. It pours slightly hazy light orange, with a massive white head. The nose is grass, orange fruit, creamy and sweaty sock. The taste is straw, resinous hops, orange squash, citrus pith, grapefruit, spice and grass, with a bitter-dry finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Not bad.

Bought it in a 50cl bottle in NZ. Nice golden colour. Good amount of froth , Bit too bubbly for my taste though. Very nice bittery taste typical in pale ales and accompained with a full body.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) Poured one pint of hazy amber beer and one pint of foam. Nice zesty grapefruit hop aroma. Light body and fizzy. Pleasant malt with lots of hop flavours, but not a lot of hop bitterness. Tangy grapefruit and some peppery spice. Some pleasant bitterness in finish. Overall a nice APA but spoiled by the ridiculous effervescence.

A good rich ale which has good flavours. Not overly hoppy, but you know you are drinking a good beer. Quite dry which means for Joe Bloggs not going to be a favourite.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2013 amazing 500mL bottle. Pours slightly cloudy deep golden with a small white head and a nice grapefruit/grassy aroma. Very nice resinous/fruity flavour with a sweet malty backing (golden promise?).

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
08/09/2011 Brasserie 4:20 (500ml bottle). Ambrata chiara, lievemente torbida, schiuma bianco sporca, abbondante e persistente. Aroma indecifrabile, poco intenso e con qualche imperfezione. Malto, caramello, una nota metallica, sentori di acqua saponata. Il luppolo fatica a venir fuori. In bocca è assolutamente anonima, acquosa, insipida, con un corpo modesto. Una piccola delusione, dato che di questo birrificio ho apprezzato moltissimo la porter.

[500ml bottle, courtesy of cgarvieuk] Blonde pour, with a fluffy white head. Slightly oaty, zesty lemon aroma. Some hops on the palate. Reminded me more of a golden ale than an APA – until the aftertaste, when that Cascade zing arrives
