3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
25th October 2011
Bottle in Genoa purchased from Enoteca Squillari. Almost clear gold beer. Nice white head. Light dry palate. Fine carbonation. Dry sweet pale malt, a trace of honey. A little marmalade citrus on the back end before the dry finish. Hangs together quite well although not really a pale ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. It’s a clear, golden body and a small, white head. Hoppy nose, with pinecones, orange and pale malts. Nicely carbonated, a bit high maybe, but pleasant. Semi-sweet, medium body. Oranges, pale malts, caramel and some bitterness in the flavor. Long, bitter finish. The flavor is a bit dull, but saved by the finish. Overall, quite pleasant and easy drinkable. 111123

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Predominantly a malty taste, in the finish as well, but some bitterness is added. Butter in the aroma. Colour is amber, hardly any head. This is an interesting beer of sorts, but doesn’t exactly cater to my taste. (33 cl bottle)

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Definitely not an English Pale Ale. Too sweet and unhopped. Some nice citrusy and fuity notes against a sweet, malty background. Not a well balanced brew. Tastes like a lager.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
13/08 0.33 l bottle from Coop store, Gradisca d’Isonzo. It poured copper body with small head. Fine yeasty and biscuit aroma, touched with caramel. Nice flavor as well, elegant malts with spices like cloves. Slightly sweet fine caramel base. Medium bodied. Long and tasty finish, caramel and slightly bitter spicy. More similar to some lighter Belgian ales than English ones, but it’s greatly underrated here. Nice.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours golden, with a light head. Aroma is not bad, with notes of caramel and sweet citrus. Flavour also has some notes of citrus, but mostly it’s bitterly unpleasant notes of sour cabbage and yeast.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
0.33 L bottle, picked up @Vinmonopolet, Vika. Clear pilsner golden, medium white head. Sweet sugary malt aroma, not unlike the smell of an alcohol-scented eurolager. No hops detected. Taste is unrefined and cloyingly sweet. Butter notes. Mealy. Traces of bitterness down below. Juicy mouthfeel. Medium full. Sweet buttery malt-drops ending. Hmm...
