2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a cloudy orangey amber with a few millimetres of off-white froth for a head. Laced as a few spots. Carbonation low with small to medium bubbles in trails. Aroma of sweet caramel and spicy floral hops - a good pale ale aroma. Taste moderately sweet with mild hops bitterness. Light to medium body. Short thin spicy finish. Quite nice.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
An honest reflection of the commercial deScriptor. Subtle old world pale ale with a quite wonderful earthy almost funky hop character. Otherwise a little weak on palate strength and this becomes more apparent as the beer warms up.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle. Deep orange colour with a thin flat sand coloured foam. Flowery hop aroma is pleasant enough and there is a nutty almond finish to the flavour. Moderate in body and flavour it doesn’t push the senses too far.

Bottle. Almost clear amber with a large loose off-white head that collapses to a coat. Aroma of floral honey, biscuits, some spices. Moderately sweet with honey, biscuits and mild spices. Thinnish bodied, but crisp and very quaffable. Falls away quite quickly at the finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 330ml bottle on 9/6/2011. Pours a slightly murky copper colour with a medium head. The aroma has a quite a bit of yeast, citrus, tea and spices. Taste wise, it’s relatively straight forward - a bit fruity, with notes of lemon and spices, and a bit of bready malt. The bitterness is medium. Not bad but not notable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours coppery brown with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows caramel, nutty malt, bananas and spicy, floral hops.
Similar flavours, lots more nutty malt and spicy hops. Finishes with a well-balanced bitterness.
Too much carbonation.

I found the brewer’s deScription to be pretty accurate. Light, hoppy pale ale with a little malt in there, really is a pretty good beer.
