2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle to shaker.
Appearance: Light gold, decent white head, clear.
Aroma: Faint. Some citrus. Otherwise leaves almost no impression on me – I don’t have a cold, do I?
Flavor: So faint it’s really hard for me to tell. I get some grain and a mildly hop-bitter finish.
Palate: Light/thin body, medium carbonation. Dry finish.
Overall: I’m having a hard time with this. On the one hand I think this beer achieves what it purports to (it is indeed smooth, clean, and sessionable as the commercial description claims), and I could see times where this would be exactly the right beer for the moment. On the other hand those are moments when I don’t particularly want to think about, taste, savor, or enjoy the beverage – those times where I want to go to a pub with friends and order a few pints of something that is cool, drinkable, utterly unobtrusive and forgettable, when I would be just as happy ordering water if water contained alcohol. And it’s hard to give an overall impression of a beer that seems best suited to make no impression at all.
Bottle pour. Clear orange with a short lasting white head. Aroma is orange and sweet malts. Medium somewhat creamy body. Sweet with a light salty finish.

Garrrafa @ Xi’an Craft Beer Festival. Coloracao ambar, espuma com boa formacao e baixa duracao. No aroma malte, fermento, mel e frutas citricas (pessego tambem talvez?). Sabor inicial adocicado com lupulos ao fundo dando um final amargo. Corpo leve, retrogosto levement amargo e duradouro. Refrescante, boa drinkability. tricksta_p (5013) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is slightly toasted malt, berries, touch of unfresh fruits, some caramel toffee. Flavour is moderate sweet and light bitter. Body is medium. Dull Pale Ale, lacks hops and character. joe19612 (3020) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2016

The scent of malt is really faint here. I took a few deep whiffs and caught some orange peel in there, but again, really faint. The brew is a pale amber, a shade deeper than a pilsner gold. The head is white and thins pretty quickly. The taste is pretty clean, not very dynamic, but it has a lightly sweet singularity. It is paler than pale, lighter than light. It’s crisp, tastes fine, but there’s not much character. There’s mild carbonation burn on the palate with every sip, but it’s not bad. There’s a thing filminess left behind. Not bad, but only a little more interesting than a Coors Banquet Beer. Theydon_Bois (20452) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2016
