I prefer this to the american pale ale they make. Still over carbonated though but a better beer all round

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2012
Bottle thanks to Harrisoni in Rome on our MesandSim’s stag do. Poured a clear dark gold amber. Pale ale aroma with some toffee and hops in the flavour. Pretty uneventful but certainly drinkable. It was up against some stiff competition that night though (thanks all, especially Alex). And to all who were there, how hot was that singer? Miaow.

Brenhophead (547) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 15, 2012
500mL bottle. pours honey colour with a soapy head that lasted longer then i expected but not long. Aroma is a strong sweet citrus with a hint of spice and it reminds me of murray’s angry man pale ale. The citrus and spice definantly follows through to the flavour but its hard to pick up and malt as the citrus dominates.

harrisoni (13565) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2012
Bottle in Rome during Mes’ stag do. Clear copper gold colour. OK pale ale has some character to it. Some caramel. Its again oxidised. Not travelled well. Some cabbage on the hop. Does not work entirely

Pours a nice creamy head with soft toffee noted on the front palate, Hoppy bitterness rolls over the top onto the back palate. Full bodied.

500 ml bottle. Nice looking light-copper in the glass with decent head and remained cloudy and hazy. Light aroma of peaches that is gentle on the nose, but not overly fresh. Tastes of malt and fruit (more citrus than the peaches), but the hops shine through at the end leaving a bitter aftertaste. For me this is the weakest member of the Renaissance family, almost boring against its superb stable-mates, but still a highly drinkable ale.
