3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 500ml. [Big gusher. Bottle was kind of warm and misshanded, but still this felt like overreacting].
Pours golden with gushing off-white bubly head. Some soapy lacing. Aroma is of malt, nuts, bread, citrus. Taste is of malt, bread, some caramel, citrus, bitterness. Palate: Medium body, weird medium-high carbonation (gushing). Overall: Good, and not too earthy as EPAís can sometime be. Carbonation seems problematic.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an almost clear golden/amber with a decent size off-white head. An appetizing aroma of bright citrus, grassy hop and sweetened malt. Taste is similar, a good malt and citrus balance. Good medium-light feel with quite a clean finish, not cloying.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (500 ml) at home. BB Feb 2016 so definitely a few months old. Slow gusher. Hazy orangey-golden with a medium spotty off-white head, moderate retention, leaving little to no lacing. Aroma is of biscuity malts along caramel, herbal notes and mineral notes. Taste is biscuity with herbal and earthy notes as well as caramel and mild spiciness. Medium body. Moderate to medium carbonation. Herbal finish. Moderately dry. The front label say itís "creamy and tart" which isnít the case at all. Still, itís not bad at all and itís rather easy drinking.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from local Yamaya. Light caramel nose, some citrus, other mild fruit, light grass, and piney hops. Hazy orange/amber color, thick beige head, sticky slow-drooping lace. Thin maltiness in initial, some decent bittering, grass, and a somewhat dry finish. Medium body. "Perfection" .... well, thatís a stretch, but it is a pretty solid pale ale. Smooth and mellow.
