3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from local Yamaya. Grain, yeast, and honey aromas, with a very light cardboard note. Hazy amber/strae color, thin head, and good lace. Caramel, honey, apples, peaches, and light spicy hopping. Thin-medium body, a bit soapy with the somewhat over-the-top bottle conditioning carbonation, slightly dry finish. Okay. The carbonation does interfere a bit.

Hazy amber color, small steady white head. Grainy, bready, hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Grainy, fruity flavor, some yeastyness. Mango, very light pine touch, sweetish. Really gives quite "bottle conditioned" feeling.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Yamaya, it no longer says Pale Ale on the bottle just Bottle Conditioned. Bottled Sept. 2013. It pours a decent looking cloudy honey amber with a thin head of foam that dissipates somewhat quickly. The aroma is an appetizing fruity/herbal hoppiness. The body is on the thin side, it’s kind of watery. While the taste doesn’t measure up to the aroma. The taste is a bit chalky, pilsner grains, a bit bready, some caramel with some hop notes but much more subdued than in the aroma. Mild mouth puckering finish. Ok

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Plechovka. Bledo zlatá farba, biela pena. Vôňa ovocná, citrusová a jemne korenistá. V chuti som cítil ovocie citrusové a liči - ako často hovorí môj kamarát pivný :) Celkom pitné pivo.

ładny, chmielowy słodki zapach. nie tak mocny jak w ipach, ale w dalszym ciągu przyjemny. piana słaba, kolor złoty, ale mocno zmętniony. w smaku dość słodki, żywiczny z przyzwoitą goryczką

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Pours nice orange, sightly hazy, visible carbonisation. Head is nice when freshly poured, dissipates fast. Aroma is quite fruity but not sweet. Thee is a small sour undertone, some herbal hops. Tropical fruits also. taste is a bit sour for some reason - making me think that maybe there is something wrong with the beer I am having. Otherwise there is some honey mixed with herbal hop flavours. Body is not too strong, feels actually quite nice as it is. Overall, a good ale, will need to try it again though to understand if this sourness should be there or not.
