3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
DATE REVIEWED: June 29, 2014... GLASSWARE: Barley Creek pint... OCCASION: prepping for P90X3--starting tomorrow...APPEARANCE: quickly dismissed off-white head; body is translucent copper with subtle, sparse effervescence... AROMA: caramel malts join with softer hops to produce a relatively pleasant promise... PALATE: sessionably sippable; slightly buttery; little or no aftertaste... TASTE: buttery caramel malts, front and center; a bit of blood iron, metallic hops; some fruity esters are involved--not so much complex as a base mixture of beer’s usual elements ... OVERALLL: described as a golden or blond by Rate Beer, I though this played more as an ESB--refreshing like a Kolsch, but more publike in its demeanor and flavor profile--not quite solid enough to demand seconds but not offensive...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at home from backlog notes. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have grainy malts, biscuits, grass,light citrus and additional fruit, some earthy notes. Just not much to get excited about.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had this for the first time in many years. Drank from the bottle. Got this from a twelve pack sampler (Old Thumper, Applehead, & Chamberlin pale ale). I remember enjoying these, I don’t know if it was a bad batch or the recipe has changed, but wasn’t happy with this one. I will have to have some on a later day and rerate.

Had this for lunch today with an overpriced fish and chips. Ok, really not much going on here. Wet. Better than water.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Tesco Wrexham. Pours a nice gold colour with a pillowy white head. Aroma is tropical, hoppy and slightly metallic. Taste is pretty much the same with a good amount of malt. Nice enough, not incredible though.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml Bottle. It pours a thin white head over a golden body. Its aroma is faint but there is some malt and some caramel amongst floral notes. Its taste was surprising deep for a yankee beer. There was caramel and malts again but with quite a strong hint of honey and there was a definite earthiness to it too. Shame about the small bottle but a very good effort. Quite enjoyable.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, 330ml. A light copper colour with a small head. A slightly malty, grassy aroma with dark fruit notes. Flavour is malty with a little caramel and citrus, a somewhat watery finish. Moderate carbonation. Not bad but nothing special either.

Bottle at home. Clear golden pour. Aroma of grainy malts, some soapy apples and a bit metallic. Flavor is grainy, sweet, a hint of creamy malts and quite boring.
