3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It’s a luscious red amber with a creamy coloured head that clings stubbornly to the glass as the body of the beer makes its way from vessel to gullet. The aroma is predominantly of sweet dusty malts. The flavour is where the spiciness comes through with sweet apricot and peach maltiness and tangs of Indian spices. I is cool and easy drinking. My impression that APA is a style of violence and the blood of spruce and redwood trees is challenged.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Amber with a collapsing off white head. Aroma of toffee, vague citrus, some spices, a little pine. And so it tastes - moderate sweetness, rather bland malt, caramel, nice quite English hops and firmish bitterness. Liked the finish but the malt side of things is rather dull and there’s really not a whole lot going on for 6.2%. 7 3 6 3 13
