3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The head is nice, the body golden. It smells hoppy, intensive, aromatic. The taste is hoparomatic, flowery, bit bitter, more aromatic, balanced and nice!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle. Cloudy orange colour, massive head. Citrus and berries, long bitter finish, Some yeast flavours as well. Very interesting, well balanced. Way too much carbonation. This one improved significantly by sitting in the glass for 30 minutes.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Great earthy, fruity and spicy aromas and flavours. Good amount of bitterness but let down by being way over-carbonated. Less carbonation would improve palate and appearance and probably taste and my score would probably be closer to 4/5.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy amber color ale with a relatively large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light dry hoppy notes with dry caramel malt notes that are also noticeable. Taste is a nice enough mix between dry caramel malt notes with some dry hoppy notes with light floral undertones. Body is quite full for style with good carbonation. Ok, but in the end this is not a style that I really dig.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from LCBO. Pours clear amber with a foamy beige head. Fruity aroma with caramel and pepper. Rich taste of bready malts, toasted grains, toffee, and English hops; great! Creamy and full body, feels like a cask ale. Love it; one of the best English Pale Ales I’ve had.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Pale golden-amber pour with a thin white head. The aroma is softly malty with a light toffee and sweet toasted biscuit character. There is a softly floral/fruity hop aroma and a nice moderate bitterness. Nicely balanced without any of the oxidation problems I’d seen in many of the other products that have come in. Lovely, quaffable ale.
