3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Walking Man, Stevenson, 24/05/13.
Clear golden copper with a thin off white head.
Nose is caramel, sugars, fruits.
Taste comprises dark malts, caramel bite, light hops, biscuit notes.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, sweetish finish.
Ok drinkable effort however I expect a little more depth and complexity from a 6.5% beer.

Draft. Pours hazy dark orange with apub head. Decent lace. Aroma and palate are the same. Medium sweet caramel and candi malts, horse blanket, and light piney hops. Medium body, good carbonation, oily-stickly texture, and a solid earthy, bitter finish. Excellent pale ale.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Was surprised I hadn’t reviewed this, as i been drinking it a long time. "Floral" i think at first sniff, a mixed bouquet, plus honey & lemon. Clear amber with modest of white head. Light in the mouth, a little under-carbonated (on tap at brewpub). Zam come the hops, harsh grape fruit rind. sometimes a little caramel comes through, and alcohol. not too harsh a finsh

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint @ Chuck’s. Smells like biscuits. Tastes overly bitter. Like. Unpleasantly and florally bitter. Tastes fine I suppose, just not fantastic.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled on tap at The Taphouse, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of spiced apples and pears, citrus hops, and biscuity malts. Flavour is a tad stronger than a typical pale ale, with biscuity malts and very astringent hops - which steal the show. Very citric and bitter hops way out of balance. Good for what it is, but way out of balance.
