American Pale Ale seems the be the light side of IPA beer. The taste and aroma are there, but somehow cut with water, ence the just bellow final note.

Gentle hoppy aroma. A very watered down taste. I expected better coming from that brewery.

500ml bottle at home, from Valhalla’s Goat, Glasgow - clear deep amber brown, thin bubbly off-white head, caramel malty aroma with nuts, no lacing, malt dominates the flavour, but with some fruitiness from the hops, good carbonation, easy to drink

Goût très léger, floteuse. Arrière goût inexistant. Seul l’arôme est sympa. Bière qui n’as aucun caractère.

500 ml bottle. Clear copper brown body with a small, lacing beige head. Aroma has caramel malt, toast, nuts and citric fruit. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, fruity, pleasant bitterness and hint of chocolate and pine. Well balanced body and nice aftertaste. A really nice brown ale.

Scopey (9380) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle at home, picked up at Trafalgar Wines, Brighton. It pours clear brown with a decent beige head. The nose is earthy, toasted bornw bread, pine, caramel and stewed orange. The taste is smooth, bitter-sweet, pine, brown bread, leather, orange, caramel, nut and wood with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Good balance and drinkability. Decent.

Rune (9401) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2014
500ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Finger thick, fawn coloured head over a clear amber, red tingled, coloured body. Smooth smell of brown malts. Nuts and caramel flavours balanced by mild fruity hops. Well rounded in the mouth. Drinks well. Decent version of the style (Hotel room Oslo 08.12.2014).

ERB92 (526) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2014
Bread, Caramel, nuts and fruits in the aroma. Mahogany with a off-white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a soft carbonation. Overall a perfectly nice Brown Ale, but i would perhaps like a bit more deep flavour notes.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 11, 2014
0.5l bottle. Yeah, it’s a clear one, kinda coppery brown in color and with a big lacing lingering head. On the nose is not bad at all. Light vanilla, brown malts, chocolate wrapper and a nice caramel snickers fudge sweetness. Tastes just as nice. Dry chocolate, a kinda grassy dryness with chocolate wrapper and some cocoa powder. Quite tasty. Light oily in the mouth with a below average carbonation level. Slightly herbal finish. Nice. 30.05.2014

YNWA, Kolding, DK. Tap, 0614. Brown with beige head. Aroma of caramel and roasted malt. Flavor with some bread and malt.
