Pours clear gold with a lasting white foam. Nose is sweet caramel/toffee upfront and slight grass and citrus on the end. Flavor is again sweet with a quite intense grassy bitterness on the finish. My housemate summed it up perfectly, a bit like Sam Adams Boston Lager.

JorgeLee (1070) - 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 (1400) - 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 (2208) - 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!

Light amber with a fine white head, pine and tropical fruit nose, typically American palate, perhaps a little sweet but with good balance of fruity malt and hops,
