4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Last one from my 4 pack,but not my last one from this brewery. This bottle poured an attractive amber colour with slighly more carbonation than the other in the range, an off white head . The beer smells of citrus and grapefruit which I am told is a characteristic of the american hop that was used. The taste is well balanced and interesting more delicate than the others, very drinkable. The finish is very resiny and lingering with a citrus taste which is slightly bitter and refreshing. A great beer for a hot day.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lovely balance pale ale. Not sure I’d call it too American as the bitterness of the hops was not over pronounced. Somewhere between English and American. Sweet orange notes with some floral balanced against a biscuity malt. Close to perfect.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber, no head; aroma of honey, treacle; taste is initially honey, bready malt, then a zesty, peppery bitterness takes over; odd, but nice enough.

Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear light amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is light malt hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a watery light woody resin palate. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation. Served cool and it was refreshing, but a little light all round.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I was puzzled as to how a beer with a great aroma poured like a maelstrom of all head and little beer, and delivered so little taste. Think I may have had a duff beer though as sediment and somewhat cloudy don’t jog my memory in ways to describe APA.

500ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clear light orange with a small white head. Nose is biscuit malts with small notes of citrus and pine. Sweet start with minimal bitterness and a very washed out finish. Light thin mouth with soft carbonation. Easy drinking but not much of interest.
