3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear copper with a small white ring of head that leaves bits of spotty lace. Aroma of caramel, toffee, grassy and earthy like hops. Taste is caramel, grass, earth, steamed veggies and some biscuit. Overall a very well balanced English pale ale with the focus on malt and a good hop presence in the background.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer has a brownish orange color with a large off-white head, and the aroma blends nutty and pale malts with floral hops. The taste is mildly sour and slightly sweet, and the palate fuses a sour yet malty finish, slick texture, medium body, and a soft carbonation with a bite.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Faint aroma of grass with a little sweetness; dark golden color, translucent, short white head that thins out quickly; light taste - so light that it barely tastes like anything, light body, thin texture and no finish. Unfortunately, I would not buy or drink this again; no aroma and no taste.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Supermarket Liquor Fort Collins. Pours a bit hazy dark orange appearance with a nice cream colored head. A bit metallic, tangerine/citrus fruity, somewhat herbal hoppy, slight earthy, a bit sweet aroma. Light caramel/toffee, a touch burnt, citrusy flavor. This bottle seems a bit dated but this could be better fresh.

355ml bottle as Organic Pale Ale. Mahogany color, lasting, beige head, lacing. Toffeeish, caramelly, slightly nutty malty aroma. Flavor has toffee, bread, caramel and slight woody notes. Bitter finish. Excellent ESB. Just the right beer at this time for me. So tasty and drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 ml bottle as Samuel Smith’s Organic Pale Ale bought at Gorgeous Wine & Cigar in Yuen Long.
Clear dark amber colour; Very thin head and beige foam which faded in 10 seconds; Decent lacing with notable slight carbonation; Sweet aroma of ale malt, with raisins, plum, dark fruit , caramel, light toffee, chocolate, light lemon and grass; Light sweet taste of ale malt, with light metallic, biscuits, bread, light yeast, light red fruit, liquorices, lemon and grass; Medium body, thin and slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is a very dry and good malty biscuit taste, straight forward, quite fulfilling. Some bits of cherry red fruit taste, sweetness minimal, metallic is light. Good… Hoppiness is lemon and light grass in nose and taste. Pretty strong bitterness for a lasting astringent finish; Dry after taste, bitter and easy to mouth.
Comments: This one is simple, nothing fancy, just about everything is done right as a Premium Bitter. Good compliment with hearty meals, or just as fun to session. Nice one!
