3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Orange/red/amber hued body with a nice thick light tan head. About 2.5 fingers thick, dense and creamy, with good retention. Some excellent lacing for the style is present as well. A really good looking beer. Nose of bitter citrus hops, floral perfume hops, caramel malt, sweet fleshy fruits and some soapy notes. Fore is pretty heavily astringent and bitter, rolling along the tongue we get sweet caramel malts and some sweet citrus fruits. Back end is more of the same, leading to a healthy dose of bitterness in the swallow. This thing isn’t perfect or super in your face or anything like that, but damn if I don’t like it quite a bit. I could knock a few of these back as a session brew. Medium bodied, prickly carbonation, slightly oily. Finish is bitter, lengthy, then at the very end some watery notes. Good beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark copper , head lasts a bit. Grass, hay, some (stone?) fruit in the aroma. Taste is fairly hoppy for a pale ale, I am getting subtle bitterness (though with less fruit than the aroma) more than malt. A slight off taste on the finish.

En ale der ligger i enden af sødlig ales, med en frugtagtig smag, og ikke ret meget humle. Let sødlig meget læskende øl.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crisp and refreshing the hops still outweigh any malt flavor. I dub this beer IPA-light. A little more malt flavor and a little less carbonation and this would be a perfect pale ale for me.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle - spicy and fruity hop nose is light but pleasant. Feel and flavor fall a little flat. I’m not a fan of English style pales generally and on top of that, this is an average one.
