3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, DBF 2004. Amber, low white head and moderate condition. Good malt and piney hop resin aroma, sweet and hoppy in the mouth with some resemblance to Anchor Liberty, but not as intense. Lingering sweet and hop bitter finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark amber color, small head. Straightforward, malty and slightly hoppy nose. Medium-bodied, caramel-malty and quite sweet palate with a medium carbonation. Ok, but nothing special.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fast disappearing fizzling head, amber colored body. Yeasty, hoppy and fruity aroma. Flavor has a slight hoppy bitterness and some fruit, but a somewhat unpleasant metallic tone. OK but a little too edgy for my liking.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange yellow beer.
Soily aroma with tones of english hops.
Soily, bitter flavour.
A bit thin for a english bitter I think but still very good.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2004 (Stockholm Beer Festival 2003)
Golden, not much head. Fruity aroma. Flavor is a little roasty, and it turns into a bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fine example of English pale ale with traditional copper color, medium body and bitter/metallic taste. Better than many English examples.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Beautiful copper-red colour with a small white head. Nice oily hop aroma with hints of orange and hazelnuts.
Taste: starts pretty good (hazelnuts and toffee) but the body tends to be too weak. Finish is not very impressive, some chemical notes, strange sweet tones and some iron.
