3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A dark but clear yellow with a medium sized and lasting off-white head. Distant citric grapefruit and lemon notes finished by a toasty maltiness. More citrus on the palate with a muted grapefruit twang backed by a sweet, biscuity malt. Not much bitterness in the finish. Subdued carbonation, a medium body and quite dry and refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Goldish body, slight haze, small white head.
Fruity hop nose; peach, citrus, bit of lychee, and tropical fruitiness, hint of spice leading onto subdued maltiness.
Medium body, slightly oily texture, moderate-to-low carbonation.
Bit of sweet caramelly malt leading onto somewhat a multicultural hop mix; bitter orange, grapefruit, melon, stonefruits, and spice. Nice bitter finish.
Overall a good American/English hybrid pale ale. I love the hop combination!

500 ml bottle. From Oxford, England. Thanks Mikko & Chris.
Slightly hazy reddish golden colour with small off-white head. Fruity bitter hoppy and sweet caramel aroma. Bitter hoppiness in flavour. Rather enjoyable.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled - ofcourse. A hazy golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of citrusy hops and elderberries - not from a hop variety that I’m that fond of. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel as well as lighter notes of hops.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Has a nice perfumy smell of hops and some coriander or other spices it seems, almost a hint of a Belgian-style scent here. And looks quite appetizing with a nice foamy head, but could be thicker. Decent lighter gold colour. Yet it tastes quite watery, no strong flavours, and lacks some intense character. There’s a soft bitterness throughout, some barley notes, but needs to really be stronger for me to really appreciate it. Feels okay on the mouth, though. In general kind of disappointing, I was expecting something better and certainly with more character.

500ml bottle shared with friends on a sunny afternoon in the patio of The Cove, Covent Garden. Served lightly chilled. Orange-amber body, fading white head. Mildly smell of malt and fruits. Taste of apricot with spicy hints. Soft carbonated. Relatively pleasant thirst quencher, but little more (London, 03.08.2009).
