3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Interesting beer, not what I expected. Pours like a lager and smells like a European pilsner. Flavour is where I was really surprised, clean and crisp - lager like, but with an ale touch. Thin, almost watery body. A cross between a pilsner and an ale going by the aromas, look and flavours. Different and enjoyable! Well done for trying something a bit out there.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Lager lookalike here....only the lighest of ale touches. English nose with some caramel malts and bright fruits. Quite friendly actually. Palate doesn’t fail to dissappoint; devoid of attractive flavours, and drys out considerably with a Asahi-like back palate. Certainly thin.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear pale gold, no head. Good aroma, mainly hops with some sweetish toffee and maybe vanilla. Light boidy and light fine carbonation. The flavour is not intense but has a reasonable balance between slight sweetness from decent malt and bitterness from the hops. The bitterness seems to have two components, one very pleasant and another which israther harsh and metallic. A decent easily drinkable decent.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the Regatta A tasty little surprise with a gold color and fine white head. Has a light nose of American hops. A clean yeast is definitely used for this one as there isnt really any of the fruitiness you’d expect. A little bit of subdued yeast character comes through once the beer warms up a bit from the typical arctic temperature that beer is served at here.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very light hop aroma. Mid gold, softly carbonated, with a nice tight white hed which laces well. Good hoppy flavour (cascade) but with an underlying harshness, possibly fromt he use of a high AA bitering hop (Green Bullet??). Some fruitiness also present, probably yeast driven.

Geez this brewery knows what it’s doing. Despite being bloody hard to find, when you do stumble across the range of beers from St Arnou, I tell you it’s worth settling down and having a red hot go at ’em. The pale ale is a fine example of what these boys do. Keep it up...and get it packaged in the bottlo!!
