3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber colour. Grapefruit aroma with slight herbal notes. Actual malt taste found in an APA while the hops wait patiently to make an impression. A pleasant liquid texture on the way down. Tthis is a really nice summer quaff. Subtle and nicely balanced, it doesn’t try to hit you over the head with a hop mallet.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle (probably past its prime) pours a clear amber color with tight off-white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is full of honey and biscuits, with some toffee and perhaps some peach. Taste is sweet with some bitterness finally coming out in the finish. This is one of the maltiest pale ales I’ve tried. Body is medium with soft carbonation and an oily mouthfeel. Not at all what I was expecting, but a pleasant surprise anyway.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bouteille de 341ml. Dégustée le 28 juin 2015. Bière blonde dorée, limpide, tirant sur le ambré. Col mince blanc crème, assez durable. Assez effervescente, bulles moyennes. Odeur de caramel, de céréales grillées. Très douce, assez sucrée, assez amère. Saveur de caramel, un peu fruitée, avec une pointe de malt rôti. Très bonne, se boit bien, rafraichissante. Bonne bière de soif, de tous les jours.

Prise en fût au Roasters Marché Central. De couleur ambrée, ça sent un peu houblonné, malté. Très clean, elle se laisse apprécier sans plus.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a pale amber colour with a nice thick creamy head. Nice lacing. Good balance of hops and malts in aroma. Flavours are pretty much the same as aromas, with a bit of grainy taste and thick maltiness. Sort of spicy mouthfeel and some tingling on the palate. Not bad, nothing outstanding for a pale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear amber color with powerful delicate activity. Creamy white sparkly 1.5 finger head lasting around 10 minutes with strong legs.
Aromas and flavors of grains, fruits, citrus, caramel, floral and herbal spices. Nice floral nose and delicious taste of sweet orange, lemon, apple and a fresh grain feel. Also slightly woody and grassy.
Creamy full body with moderate carbonation. Strong and long finish ending with a slightly fruity but highly spicy bitter chalky and dry mouth coat.
Overall a very good craft; complex and delicious crispy flavors with good freshness while having a little too much aggressive bitterness for my taste with tongue numbing spicy hops.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden malts, giving a biscuit malt base aroma, and taste. Hops are English and perhaps some resin. Balanced recipe and enjoyable, and despite not being extreme at all and flavourful, it’s not one typical style that it reminds me of. English Pale Ale perhaps. Nice bitterness and good drinkable body. Very nice to drink, quality brew. (Bottle from Saveur Bière)
