Malt forward and dominant - very English bitter in style which isn’t for me - watery and lacks depth - disappointing.

Pours amber with off-white head. Aroma is sweet malts with with both floral and fruity hop character. Flavor is mostly sweet with the the fruity hop character taking more of a back seat. There is only a slight bitterness. I find this an excellently balanced beer where neither the malt or the hops hold a dominant sway. It is simply a well-crafted brew that accentuates each ingredient to create a highly drinkable yet flavorful beer.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Amber in color, clear without a lot of carbo’s. A good amount of foaminess. Balance aroma of hops and malts, hops are earthy and citrusy not overpowering. A nice tasting brew with bready maltiness, and good bitter hop flavor nothing in particular hop wise just a bitter flavor. Dry finish. A balanced beer with a nice body to it. There’s some lacing down the glass.

Saeglopur (274) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle from saveur-biere.com. Beautiful red copper, clear body, with a medium, creamy, white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, peach, red berries, caramel. Tastes of grapefruit, pine, peach, caramel, some black tea. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a medium carbonation and it finishes bitter, with lemon zest, pine and some peach. Very good. Easy to drink, with some nice hop bite and a good balance between bitter hops and caramelic malts. The hop bill could be a bit more complex maybe, but overall a really enjoyable APA.

maltman53 (280) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - JUN 26, 2014
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.

allmyvinyl (2928) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 22, 2014
Keg at Brewdog AGM 2014. Pretty much what you’d expect - clear amber, thin white head. Aromas of grapefruit and caramel. Bitter taste. Solid.

TET (1578) - FINLAND - JUN 20, 2014
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.

Piotr (27) - POLAND - JUN 4, 2014
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!
