reakt (950) - Greater London, - JAN 5, 2013
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.

Sad24 (107) - GREAT YARMOUTH, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2014
Bottle from Sainsburys, surprising lack of hops and Aroma for an American pale Ale. Fairly dark.

MichaelAwesome (4314) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2014
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.

McTapps (4314) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2014
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.

Mr_Pink_152 (830) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2014

minutemat (1750) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2014
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.

garthicus (2693) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 20, 2014
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.

BeerSkull (1308) - SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2014
(Bottle). Scent and taste of malt and hops. No remarkable beer but quite drinkable.

greenmanalishi (479) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2014

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.
