Bottled. Ambery golden colour with a small head. Aroma is fruity, floral, some mild rubbery and grainy notes. Flavour is fruity, floral, some earthy and herbal notes along with mild grains and some cooked vegetables as well. APA yes, but feels kind of half hearted and cheap.

ianwelby (744) - SCOTLAND - APR 17, 2015
Lively and clear amber beer with a thick foamy head. Light hoppy citrus smell. Flavour is a touch underwhelming to be honest. It starts off promising: hop, light fruits (apple, perhaps) along with the zesty citrus but it kind of peters out into nothingness. It’s not watery as such, just the taste doesn’t hang about for long.

16.1.2015. Aroma of raisin caramel, somehow impure. Taste is similar, sweetish. Something tastes artificial.

christhoel (286) - chesterfield, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Amber to gold with white head. Some hoppiness on the nose when opening, nicely fresh. This leads to a fairly sweetish, fruity beer, peach and avocado notes perhaps, some sweetish pear

A nice, crisp, hoppy American pale and great value as sainsbury's do the import leg work.

Giochaurand (170) - FINLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours copper in colour with medium head. Aroma is hops and malts. Dissapointing palate. Taste is citrus hops.

sadly this beer wasn’t that great was expecting a big hoppy punch but that didn’t come such a shame

Sad24 (210) - GREAT YARMOUTH, Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2014
Bottle from Sainsburys, surprising lack of hops and Aroma for an American pale Ale. Fairly dark.

MichaelAwesome (5676) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle shared with McTapps. An I am a man that I shared it. Dull and dry with a unbalanced bitter ending. Only a bit of earth, some hops and nuts in the aroma. Boring beer.

McTapps (5716) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle from Sainsburys in Eastbourne. Pours out in a deep golden-amber colour with low head and medium to flat body. Aroma of mild hops and dust. Taste of mild hops, straw, basement, old herbs and mild spices. Dusty finish with hints of corc. Not a very nice beer, expected more.
