3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle@gallows. Orange amber, clear. Malty caramelly, slight nutty foresty piney nose. Med bodied, super smooth, almost silky. Green forest in the finish. Really like the texture, served just at a good fridge++ temp to keep it soft. Clean, victory- malty, bit boring flavourwise.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle in pint glass from Downtown Discount Beverage. Aroma is strong bready malt with floral, herbal, musky-resinous hops. Appearance is clear gold with orange tinge, nice sparkle with virtually no head and mild lacing. Taste is nice mix of bitter and sweet, slightly citrusy, metallic, with corn chip finish which is long. Palate is light bodied with thin texture and slightly overcarbonated. Overall, a lot of positives here and very enjoyable to drink.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle into a tulip.
Best by 10/29/15.
A: Dark gold almost brown pour. Looks like a watered down porter ( in a good way) Small coarse beige head. Streaming bubbles quickly die down. Low retention and average lacing.
S: Pungent earthy hop smell dominates. Smells English.
T: Stiff piney/woody bitterness at the start, balancing toward the finish with a faint malt sweetness. Lots of character. Tastes a bit more American.
M: Medium body with maybe a bit below average carbonation. Light resin on the medium short finish.
O: Good pale ale that seems to straddle the fence between English and American styles. Widely available in NC and priced at $9/6 means this is well worth an occasional buy.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Di colore dorato carico, quasi ambrato; schiuma abbondante, di grana grossa, buona allacciatura, discreta persistenza. Al naso è molto ben equilibrata, con sentori di malto, una dolcezza leggera, pompelmo, luppolo, qualche speziatura e una presenza di pino. In bocca ritroviamo un buon equilibrio, con una combinazione di caramello e malti, che fa scorrere la bevuta rapidamente verso un retrogusto luppolato, che porta ad un finale amaro. Limone, mandarino, pompelmo e scorza d’arancia, offrono un’ottima interazione con note di luppolo erbaceo. Dissetante e rinfrescante, sessionabile!
