3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good bitter with some clean malt taste and English hop aroma. There’s some malt sweetness that mixes with some fruity esters like in all classic English beers. Tasty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pour. Aroma is dark fruits, caramel and noble hops. Appearance is cloudy brown (like a dark cider) with minimal head, no noticeable sparkle and no lacing. Taste is as aroma--a bit like a rich, dessert wine. Palate is medium bodied with average carbonation and pleasant sweet finish. Overall, a nice, authentic European representative of the style. Unique and good.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Willow’s Market in Menlo Park, CA. Aroma is caramel, malts, mild dirty/earthy hops. Taste is heavy, chewy caramels, lozenges. A gritty, toothy Pale Ale most likely brewed to be appreciated in a dark English bar by men far more ferocious than myself.
