gyllenbock (9841) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2017
On tap at Radisson Blu Sky City, Arlanda Airport. Golden with a small white head. Light with some hops, caramel, bread and butter. A thin and boring one.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2017 Nice smell of citrus and hops. Taste is similar to most UK pale ales with hops, citrus and grass. What separates this is it is well balanced, not too bitter, not too sweet. Has a slightly malty biscuity finish. Better than the likes of Oxford Gold, Cocker Hoop and Marston's EPA. Nothing astounding, but a nice session ale.

DocLock (11021) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2017
Hazy copper with tan head. Pale malt, hops in the nose, tastes of hops, pale malt, mild citrus, low level of complexity and palate heft, not well balanced.

fdomig (1028) - München, GERMANY - JUL 21, 2017
1 pint at Grave Digger, Dublin. Aroma is light hops. Appearance is clear golden with a thick white foam. Taste is light bitter. Watery. Ok.

MGantzel (274) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2017 Denne pale ale har et klart gyldent udseende med et medium hvidt skum. Øllen har en frisk og frugtig aroma og smager deraf med noter af karsmel og har en bitter afrunding. Medium karbonering.

Aroma of malt, caramel and hops. Golden pale appearance with a white head. Medium sweetness and light medium bitterness. A nice bitter finish. Drinkable and fresh.

Theydon_Bois (20606) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2017
Keg at the Tullyglass House hotel, Ballymena, 10/07/17. Clear golden blonde with a well presented white cap of bubbles. Nose is pale malts, bread dough, grass, lemon rind. Taste comprises biscuit crumble, straw, light citric notes, bready bite, hint of caramel. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with modest bitterness. Average as per the style in general.

16erBlech (526) - Burgenland, AUSTRIA - JUL 7, 2017
0,5l bottle from a friend who brought it from Dublin. Too little carbonation. Almost tasteless, thin brew. No finish. Boring and disappointing. Must be the worst Pale Ale I ever had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AleSensei77 (1) - - JUL 7, 2017 does not count
Had it on tap in the Summit Pub Howth Dublin. Tasted weak, no aroma, flat. Don’t bother. Another terrible beer from a brewery with a legacy of terrible beers. Waste of water.
