3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
1/2 liter bottle - finally fot around to reviewing this one after sipping away at a supply I had cached all summer. Nice hazed gold color with a 3 finger frothy cap - good retention. Modest carbonation. Wonderful aroma floral, citrus, exotic fruits, cereal, some grassiness. Medium bodied, good dose of malts in the front balanced by a pleasant grape skin astringence which turns more resonous and citric in the bittering finish. This is an excellent pale ale with all the wonderful qualities of the nelson sauvin hop. I will definately buy more when it is available.

Tap. Small silky white head, thick lace. Clear pale golden. Strong fruity aroma with mango. Dry, oily and crispy palate. Hoppy and bitter. Bit strange.

Aromat mało intensywny, cytrusowy. Barwa słomkowa, zamglone. Piana średnia, niska. W smaku wyraźne tropiki i białe owoce. Wodniste ze średnią goryczką.

It is nice sometime to have a soft beer, and this one is great on that purpose. Soft aroma and taste of hop, without giving the impression of a "watery" beer.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a completely clear and very pale yellow color, topped with a decent and solid white head which leaves nice lacing. Aroma is pleasantly fruity, some tropical fruits which I can’t really identify, but very nice. Also notes of hops are well present. Starts with some fruity feel, followed by medium hoppy bitterness and some pine notes, with some fruity notes again in the finish. Very nice, very drinkable. Just great.

2.8.2014. Very pale yellow, clear. Aroma of spruce, tropical elements such as pineapple. Aroma is still quite delicate. Medium bodied followed by medium strong taste of citrus, pine and grassy bitter finish. Quite refreshing, easy to drink.

Barril @Taxman. Amplios sabores de malta. Suave pero con muchos matices. Cuerpo muy fino y fácil de beber. Buen regusto maltoso.

A soft beer. Light but very doughy malt dominates the aroma, then dank pine grape maybe pineapple. Flavours are the same: not a punch in the face, more a polite refresher (for a hop head).

Bottled. Clear with a light gold colour and a medium sized, foamy, off-white head that was soon gone. Subtle aromas of grass and yellow fruit. Sweet fruit in the mouth at the start (pineapple?), then a dry, earthy finish. Clean and well-balanced. Good, but would have liked a little more body.

From tap, hazy pale yellow with low head. Aroma is very fruity with notes of tropical fruit, citrus, some cereal. Taste is bitter with a very light malt body leading to a long ang lingering bitter finish. Taste is wonderfully fresh and fruity, light and refreshing.
