3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a perfect pint.
3.0 A: Lightly hazed medium orange color. Just one finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is below average and just a few whisps of lacing are left.
3.75 S: Smells like a typical English pale with notes of grapefruit. Mildly toasty with grainy neutral maltiness. Mineral, caramel, earthy hoppiness with grapefruit fruitiness.
3.5 T: Tastes pretty much like it smells. A little hoppier than I was expecting though. Toastiness, graininess, caramel, mineral, earthy hops, light nondescript citrus, and grapefruit.
4.0 M: Medium to heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation with a nice creaminess. Has some weight to it, but isn’t really chewy. It works well.
3.75 D: Not bad. I don’t know if the grapefruit added anything to the beer, but it didn’t take away either.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours amber with frothy off-white head. The taste is citrusy with surprisingly mild grapefruit notes. A caramel malt base comes through fairly boldly. A pleasant, easy to drink golden ale, but nothing out of the ordinary.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle shared at a tasting at our place. Cloudy amber with bubbles. Lots of grapefruit in the nose but only slightly hoppy. Bitter, like expired grapefruit juice, malty, then very bitter, but in a bad way. Medium body, bitter finish with some caramel. Not good - maybe it’s a bottle/ batch/ delivery defect.
