3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 650ml. Poured golden with a slight haze and a good sized, frothy, off-white head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was of resinous fruity hops with caramel malts, toffee, passionfruit, apricots and zesty orange marmalade. Flavor was a moderate fruity hop bitterness with biscuity malts, caramel, peaches, dry nectarines, grapefruit, hints of nuts and a dry hoppy finish. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation, a dry hoppy mouthfeel, slightly chewy texture and a good length finish.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Indistinct. It exists but doesn’t leave a lasting impression, while actually pleasant. Have to try again.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy yellow body, white head. Quite lame toasty malty notes and some citrus hoppiness. No juniper. Flavour is flat. Drinkable but nothing special.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. From alesbymail.co.uk.
Cloudy golden colour with an average sized foamy white head.
The aroma is sweet malt, bun dough, some strange piney/grassy hops and more sweetness...
The flavour is mild grassy/piney hops, pine needles and sweet malt.
Waterish. Not my kind of APA. I was expecting more juniper... well, I’m sahti freak...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I really liked this one. Nice hoppy aroma with a citrusy, grassy, piney taste. I didn’t think I would like this one when I bought it but was pleasantly surprised.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma is appetizing with the familiar aroma of hops with a subtle something else that I am guessing are the juniper berries. The balance of flavor in this beer make it perfect for roast chicken, the malts blend very nicely at the beginning of the mouthful with the hops leading through to a nice and refreshing zing at the end.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle- Pours a light clear amber. The smell is weak with some floral fruity notes with a tannish head that goes away quick. Very good pale ale, well balanced and smooth. Cant seem to taste the fruit but the spice is present. I will be drinking this tomorrow on Turkey Day!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From 12 oz bottle. Pours a clear coppery amber with a small white head and moderate carbonation. Aromas of grain, citrus, flowers and a touch of pine. Taste is similar, with lemony flavours prominent at the front end. Good hop bitterness in the mid-palate with a tartness at the end, presumably from the juniper berries. Not a bad beer at all, but it doesn’t really come together cohesively.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tulip glass. Smelled sweet, possibly bananas but nothing else. Pours a cloudy pale copper, minimal head, some lacing. Foamy mouth feel, taste is sweet with just a pinch of hops to it. I had high hopes on this.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Blonde limpide au petit col fuyant.
Des arômes de citron, de figue et de céréale.
Une attaque assez douce pour un corps plutôt mince. Mais l’amertume du final rattrape le tout et l’équilibre avec le sucre est bien réussi.
Une bonne Pale Ale americaine
