2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle - surprisingly high volume for such a bland APA. With a small froth, little carbonation and lovely colour. However it has no palate, no aftertaste.
