3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2011 Bottle. The pour was a clear dark golden copper with a thin (less than 1 finger) fizzy white head that dissipated rapidly and had no lacing at all.
The aroma was of a toasted caramel malt, a floral hop and an earthy yeast with slight notes of citrus, honey and a touch of some dried fruit.
The taste was quite malty with a hint of honey and a mild fruitiness at the start and finished mildly hoppy with a nice note of citrus and a touch of sweetness at the end. The flavor lasted an average amount of time proceeding the swallow which allowed for the bitter citrus flavor to really take hold.
Mouthfeel was a bit heavier than medium in body and had a dry texture with almost prickly carbonation.
Overall a well rounded Pale Ale with a very enjoyable bitter sweet aftertaste.

Bouteille sans date. Robe ambrée claire sans col de mousse. Arômes de malt caramélisé, sucre d’orge, gazon, orange et autres agrumes, un peu de sucre d’érable. A quelques similitudes avec un barleywine américain. En bouche, houblons terreux, gazon humide, orange trop mûre, zeste de citron. Beaucoup moins sucré qu’au nez à part un soupçon de caramel. Texture huileuse et corps mince.

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.

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.

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.
