1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
2 finger head. Pale looking but ambery to light. Carbinated for a while. Smell is of like citrus,and other stuff from hoppy beer’s. Taste is light grapefurit,light pine because it seems like its going that way but never taste full on pine or grapefruit and mabye a tad citrusy. Some sips the hops tingle inside a little. Full bodied. I’m thinking a milder version of there IPA but I don’t know. Hop heads probably would want it hoppier but like it more then a malt maniac would. It’s allright. 5/10

Bottle. Watery orange to cola colored pour with minimal head. This tastes a bit flat. Moderate caramel sweetness and a hint of citrus. Easy drinking but fairly dull and boring.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a clear golden amber colour with a two-finger off-white sudsy head that retained well and gave good lacing. Aroma of sweet malt. Taste slightly bitter as influenced by hops - hops provides some bitterness but this is not over-bearing. Medium body. Long slightly bitter finish. A good pale ale.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
341 ml bottle. Beautiful dark gold color. Two finger off-white head. Smell is not too inspiring, metallic and slight alcohol. Taste is firm bitterness, slight hints of caramel, maybe some maize. There is a faint hops flavor, but not quite present enough for a pale ale, in my opinion. A bit of a sharp alcohol taste which is distracting. Overall, this beer is a bit disappointing, but in all fairness, it was once my favorite beer many years ago. Great "stepping stone" beer for those who are moving away from the macro brews and more towards craft beer. If this had more hops flavor / aroma, I’d be sold, and I don’t say that as a hop-crazy IPA fan, I just think it would really compliment this beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear medium amber with a thin head and a full wash of lace. The flavor is straightforward - good caramel malt at the onset gives way to a light but clear hop finish. Unassuming, yes; also good tasting, easy drinking, and sessionable. Recommended

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aug 22 2012. 341ml bottle pours clear amber-red with 2 inch foam head. Head settles to cap and has good lacing retention through duration of drink. Aroma is strong biscuit malt with traces of an earthy hops. Flavour starts with honey/caramel biscuit followed by grassy hops. A well balanced brew with a dry finish, crisp mouthfeel, and lingering bitterness - not strong but present.
