2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice, crisp, hoppy American pale and great value as sainsbury's do the import leg work.

Bottle from Sainsburys, surprising lack of hops and Aroma for an American pale Ale. Fairly dark.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

Bottle from sainsburys. Hoppy but not much aroma, a bit fizzy for me too. Not bad, but not great either.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle from, I believe, Sainsburys. Drunk in the garden. Pours clear copper. Fairly mediocre APA very low on flavour by American standards. Alright I guess, and fairly easy drinking but just lacking in taste, hops, bitterness, body and everything else an APA should be.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Appearance: Ruby red, proud white head. Aroma: slightly hoppy, grain, leafy, quite a mild aroma. Flavour: lemon, grainy, grassy again with a little hoppiness, caramel, quite a carbonated mouthfeel. Not bad.
