Pours copper-red with lasting lace. Sweet malty nose and citrusy hops. Huge caramel malt mash bill, almost like a slice of sticky toffee pudding. Overall, a great example of style if your PA style is maximum malt.

Keg at Brewdog AGM 2014. Pretty much what you’d expect - clear amber, thin white head. Aromas of grapefruit and caramel. Bitter taste. Solid.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
An orange brown beer with a dense, medium and blond head. The nose has some tropical fruits, peaches, caramell and some pine needles. Taste has pine needles, dryer than aroma, only hint of fruits, wood, medium bitterness. Medium bodied, easy to drink. More aromatic fruits would be needed, now only the bitterness is dominating.

Poured dark copper colour, the aroma isn’t very intensive, some hoppes and fruits, a bit flat, nicely balanced with rather rich body. Very drinkable and enjoyable, a bitter aftertaste which is very nice. Deserves the score!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle into a shaker glass; served cold.
Aroma: Caramel with a touch of vanilla oak. Malt-forward, just a touch of resin-y hops.
Appearance: Barely translucent amber body. Not a lot of visible carbonation. Thin off-white head. Moderate+ lacing.
Taste: Caramel malt for sure. Bready, with just enough hop bitterness to round out the flavor profile.
Palate: Moderate+ body, a little thick. Finish is long and ends on gentle bitterness towards the rear of the palate.
Overall: Similar flavors to Stone Brewing Co.’s Levitation Ale, but the body is more thick, and the flavors are more malt-forward and less bitter. A nice pale ale!

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2014 Aroma is of caramel malts and light citrus hops. Flavor is pretty bold for a pale ale. Reminiscent of a lighter IPA. Stone does it again with a fantastic beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark copper with a foamy white head. Has a light malt aroma. Flavor is sweet malts and low bitterness. Has a light to medium mouth feel. The malts are a tad too sweet, and there isn’t much else to this. It’s okay, but not something I would return to.
