mt_hall (107) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2014
Bottled. Clear, dark copper colour, with a decent foamy head and lively carbonation. Fresh hoppy aromas (subtle English hops, that is.) Sweet malt flavours are balanced by fresh hops and then a dry, earthy finish. Clean, refreshing, and well balanced. Pretty good.

Botella se 50 cl en el festi de Avilés el 11_08_2014, en el momento. Color ámbar bronce con poca espuma blanca. Cuerpo ligero a medio. Más sabor del que me esperaba con toques maltosos algo tostados y dulces. Buena.

matstrange (63) - Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2014
Lovely creamy head lasting longer than most. The beer itself is a dark gold in colour with moderate carbonation. It has quite a malty flavour rather than a happiness of other pale ales but it’s throughly enjoyable and worth picking up a bottle of.

magpieken (49) - - AUG 6, 2014
500ml bottle. BB Jan 15. Pours a pale amber colour with a pillowy off-white head which persisted. Restrained aroma of honey, fruity hops and sweet, caramel malt. Light sweetness at the start gives way to a mineral, light to medium bitter finish. Light to medium body. Nicely balanced and very easy drinking.

Rob_D_UK (751) - Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2014
Copper brown pour with flecks of ruby. Frothy head clings to the glass. Malt, fresh bread on the nose. Well balanced and somewhat fruity.

Mr_Pink_152 (635) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle from co-op supermarkets. Clear amber colour with a creamy white head. The aroma was grainy, and lightly sweet. It had flavour of grain, herbs and a mild bitterness.

Maxbier (206) - Maryland, USA - AUG 2, 2014
500ml bottle. Copper color with huge white head. Aroma is faint malt. Taste is medium malt and hop balance. With slight bittering in the finish. Nice classic pale ale.

Gerbeer (1734) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 30, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours copper with full to moderate head. Aromas of bread and light grass - not much on the nose - perhaps some light caramel as well. Flavors of grass, toast, and light malts with a bit of nuttiness. Subtle and pleasant. Very nice balance.
