3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber color; creamy head. Aroma of caramel, candi sugar, rhubarb. Medium to light body structure, a lot of caramel flavor, bitterness far below expectations (but with some aromatic quality). The bottle is not old, but the flavor seems to be.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask gravity at GBBF 2007. Amber, bubbly beige head. Subtle rather nice hop aroma. However, doesn’t do a huge amount in the mouth malt wise, even watery. Fragrant. Flowery. It’s just a little disappointing in the mouth. Nice though, good flowery hop.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 12oz at Patricks. A dense, finger-thick off-white head sits on top of a copper coloured, clear body. Cute lacings. The aroma has a pleasant malty backbone, with piney, resiny and grassy hops. A but on the amber ale side, but pleasant anyway. The flavour had some caramel maltiness as a foundation for grassy, piney hops and some bitterness. Full body, soft on the palate. Some bitterness in the finish, would like it to be more, but it’s nice anyway. A pleasant one indeed, but a bit old-style for me. 120830

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at the South Beach Bar & Grille, South Beach, SD 19/04/14.
Had this many times in years gone by, time to catch up with a rating!
Clear dark amber with a moderate off white come light beige covering.
Nose is floral hops, light perfume, caramel malt, orange, toasted malt.
Taste comprises caramel malt, perfumed tones, subtle hoppage, orange rind, straw.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
A well made easy drinking APA which would suit those just starting to acquire a taste for hoppy beers. I used to think this was hoppy when I first had it 10 or so years ago, how my palate has changed - decent enough none the less.
