3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle served in a Duvel tulip glass.
A: Pours a dark orange color forming a solid creamy yellow head. Clear. Good retention and lots of spotty lacings left in the glass. A very thin layer remains for long time on the top
S: Sweet, grainy and fruity. Strong notes of caramel and crystal malts. Quite fruity too with notes of orange and peaches. Nice touch of flowery hops and some spices like vanilla and nuts
T: Sweet upfront. An authentic ale. Again, a very malty and fruity beer. Notes of spices and nuts. Caramel and crystal malts, sweet bread, vanilla followed by a mild hoppy bitter end
M: Medium bodied and medium carbonated beer. Sweet, malty and fruity aftertaste
O: Good drinkability. Very underrated beer. Quite smooth and easydrinking

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 0,33L. Clear, dark golden colour with average, creamy, off-white head. Toasted malty aroma with grassy hops, biscuits, honey and vanilla. Taste starts light acidic, apricot marmelade like and finish light acidic/medium bitter. Medium body, watery texture and soft carbonation. Refreshing and easy to drink, but less acidity would make it better, I think.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Fruktig og fin aroma, men den blir for sukkersøt i munnen. Ellers god. (Jomfruland, 09.08.14)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Bottle Bank, Falmouth, Cornwall. Clear gold with a healthy close to white head. Aroma is quite mild, some sweet caramel, high malt flavours, marzipan, some fruit. flavour has peach, more malts, medium sweetness. I quite enjoyed this. A little thin but refreshing. Doesn’t taste like an English pale though but who cares...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.33 bottle. Pours deep clear gold with medium soft head. Faint aroma of grassy hops and cardboard. Sweet and malty taste, honey and flowers. Cooked apples in the aftertaste. Too much carbonation for the style. Better than other lagers, but far from a real ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 6/20
Sabor persistente e um amargor gostoso. Espuma cremosa, porém se desfaz rápido demais. Bastante frutada. É uma boa ale, tendo bom custo benefício.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 Old rating, 0,33l bottle @ home:
Fruktig lukt med preg av malt, humle, tørka frukt, karamell og gras. Sødmerik smak med preg av malt, humle, sukker og gras. Metallisk. Middels bitterhet og lengde. Kjedelig.
