3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep amber body with a beautiful off-white head that clings nicely to the glass. Complex and inviting aroma. Caramel, berries, citrus, and a hint of pine. Smooth, creamy palate with a decent bite of carbonation at the back. The flavor takes the great aroma and steps it up a notch. Sweet entry with caramel and bread coming to mind. The brew finishes appropriately bitter with a grapefruit and pine bite.

350ml bottle. Clear, copper-ish amber colour with small to average, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Generally cautious aroma has hints of mint and a bready, doughy malty touch. Taste delivers fully integrated, mild notes of malts and hops; slightly doughy, bready, caramel malty with subtle sweetness on one hand, bitter hoppy, minimally citrusy, with a touch of gooseberry on the other - additionally a spicy-herbal yeasty touch between aniseed and basil. Super soft, smooth palate, gentle but insistent carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Memphis, Surprised I haven’t ticked this before. Pours Amber brown color with medium off white head. Notes of sweet and lightly sticky malt, nice bitter pine hops, and ashy bready grains. Some good lacing on glass. Balanced but not my kind of pale ale. Prefer them golden or yellow with more citrus but can appreciate this brew.
