Good reddish-brown colour, little head, and that disappears quite quickly. Nice malt/hop nose some attractive citrus character there. Palate is predominately malt, was hoping for a lot more hops, so there is a noticable sweetness to the fore, with a gentle citrus hoppiness creeping at the end. Quite drinkable, but not a typical American Pale Ale!

postdeath (3) - Guildford, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2014 does not count
Bottle, pours medium amber. Smelled a little like malty raisins. Grassy taste, with mildly bitter aftertaste. Nothing special, but surprisingly drinkable for the price.

Beese (1462) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle from Sainsbury’s, Watford. Poured a clear dark golden colour, with a large dense white head. Aroma of US hops, biscuity malt and caramel. Flavours were similar, some grassy hop notes and spruce. Finish was resinous, with some toffee and grain. Nothing special, but pretty reasonable US pale.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle at home. Poured a medium to dark gold with a thin white head. Aroma is carboard, malts, bread, corn. Flavour is a little metallic, citrus, malts. I love American pale ale, this doesn’t taste like one and I didn’t enjoy it at all.

JorgeLee (1139) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2014
Bottle from err Sainsburys. Coppery colour, watery head, rather fizzy. I guess it is a successful attempt at an APA, somewhat fruity hops, moderate bitterness, a little malty. Slightly clunky too, a bit homebrewesque.drinkable enough, a bit earthy though.

dynamiteninja (1469) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2014
Bottle. Thin white gold head without much retentive qualities. Nose straight from a 2 degrees Celsius refridgerator was fairly neutral, but after warming up we got some hop character, some citrus notes, alcohol and a generally American character. Corn and grass. Some toast, some orange. Boiled vegetables. The taste has a white sherbet tanginess with some bitterness towards the finish. Dry ending. Crisp mouthfeel. Watery palate. Only paid 89p for this, so can’t really complain, but a bit underwhelming.

allmyvinyl (2802) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 28, 2014
355ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours clear gold, no head. Malty aromas, light lemon citrus, touch of butterscotch. Taste is more of the same. With so many good APAs being made in this country, why import something so mediocre?

Bright clear gold - amber beer. Palate is smooth and little dry with fine carbonation. Smooth semi dry malt, light touch of caramel. Mild hops. Little orange and orange peel. Very light bitterness. Smooth semi dry finish. It’s not bad but there are so many better pale ales around!
