3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Harrisoni in Rome on our MesandSimís 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.

An enjoyable brew with no features (or faults) to stand out from the crowded field of antipodean IPAs.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a pint glass. Pours clear amber with a small off-white head that fades slowly to a thin cover and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has notes of pine, caramel, biscuit malts and flowers. The flavour is balanced between mild piney bitterness and mild toasted malty sweetness. There are delicate grassy hops and biscuity malts as well. The finish is medium in length and moderately bitter. On the palate it is light-medium in body with a dryish texture and soft carbonation. Overall this is a nice English style pale ale. It is more subtle and balanced than the Discovery American style variant. A nice session ale, very well done. 2013-06-06

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 Iíve had.
