2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
I love the label. Somewhat classically British real ale in its approach. From the bottle just on cool. An unexcited pour needed just a little rousing. Sloppy, dollop of white sets atop an orange copper body that is just shy of bright and filled with streams of very fine carbonation. Aroma holds hints of damp herbs, Anzac biscuits, pine needles, dried bamboo, honeydew and cantaloupe. Somewhat dull by comparison in the mouth. The hops are overly piney and there is a bitter hop and malt clinch just on the swallow - this character sticks around the most. Buttery and yeasty across the mid-palate with a light hint of toasted grain. Not much esters show. Mouthfeel is soft to soapy in texture with a medium light body. Average afternoon quaffer.

At a tasting, thanks Ariel, small stable bubbly head, clear very deep orange, to light brown colour, light fruity hoppy aroma, flavour of stale grains, and a hint of hops, medium almondy bitterness. Nice but much too old.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks tomer. Clear amber with a beige head. Aroma of floral and earthy hops and some slightly stale malt. Flavor has some sweetish malt, a touch of caramel, some floral hoppiness and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied.

Clear beige foamy head with hops and spices in the aroma. Body is clear copper. Taste shows bitterness and IPA flavors, but still light in taste and short.

På fat @ KB. Mörk bärnstensfärgad. Svag doft och smak som försvinner för snabbt.

A good enough beer to drink too dinner, but no distinct smell or taste. It doesn’t feel much in the mouth

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: quite malty, bread and some caramel. Appearance: medium-dark clear brown, hardly any head. Taste: medium bitter. Palate: bitter long finish, turning a bit sour, lively carbonation. Overall: OK APA, nothing too remarkable though. Pint at Menzies Lounge Arlanda, Sweden.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber and with an off white medium sized head with some lacing. Nose has grape, pine, some grass and caramel and maltiness. Light dry mouth feel initially with some medium malt caramel body building up, however it could be more complex. Ends dry bitter of grape and lime, well balanced with lingering maltiness. Taste of grape, pine, some lemon and caramel, white bread plus some fruity esters. Quite nice, i believe this one was served fresher then when i tried it previously.

@ Havregatan. Flaska från Systembolaget. Doft av humle och grape. I den ganska tunna smaken finns grape, citrus och humle. Besk och något söt.

Clear ale a nice clear beer low alc. and smooth low bitter taste. The beer is missing some punch especially when you gave a bulldog on the logo more stronger tastes are expected but did not come on the forefront when tasting.
