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!

Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours bright orange with rapidly dissipating head. Aroma treacly, with heavy maltiness and some citrus but overbearing sweetness makes it rather cloying.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from ye big global retailer.
Appearance - bright orange like lucozade. Big fluffy head.
Nose - pine and toffee. A bit dirty and earthy.
Taste - citrus and toffee. Again a but dirty.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a dry earthy finish.
Overall - the nose gives hope but it slides off the cliff after that. Amazing how the massive retailers despite their wealth are unable to persuade very talented brewers to sell their soul and brew for them.
