3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Total Wine, Fairfax 330ml ($5); Pours a hazy light amber with an off-white head. Aroma is grapefruit, sugar, and other fruit. Taste is sweet at the front, then somewhat hoppy and bitter to the end. The aftertaste continues a legacy of bitterness. This ain’t bad. It is probably under-rated.
HOME (33 cl bottle): A light brown coloured nice good head above a clear amber beer. Smell of caramel malts, light sweetness with nuts, candy (light chocolate) and fruity (apple, pear and light peach). Hardly no hops aroma, but a nice hoppy bitterness in the taste. Taste starts caramel sweetness, but fast a hop bitterness is coming up, which makes the beer later dry bitter. The hops taste is also citrus-like as from red grapefruit, marmalade and melon). The palate is an average carbonation, medium body, slightly sweet sticky, dry bitter and somewhat alcoholic. Nice American Pale Ale. Lubiere (14126) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2016
A murky brown ale with a thick frothy lacing mocha head, gushed. In aroma, sweet fruity caramel malt with loads of nutty notes, resinous floral hops, light coffee grind, musty character, nice. In mouth, a nice toasted malt with light vinous notes piney floral hops, caramel candy, smooth alcohol warmth, very nice, for a 3 yr old ale. frankpoirot (24) - - MAR 7, 2015
a very balanced pale ale APA.
floral and citric aromas rise nicely into the nose.
enjoyable to drink, weird artistic design for te label. markextrae (4454) - Alingsås, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2014
shared bottle, poured a deep amber colour with a bit of a off head. aroma is like a spice in some candy my grandmother used to have, some kind of a spiced peppermint, spices, herbal notes, malts, horrible beer, the spice is to overwelming Benzai (16251) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle @ home shared by Dutchdrebus. Hazy amber color, small off-white head that leaves fair lacing but diminishes fairly quickly. Weird aroma of some kind of fruits mixed with malts and old hops. Taste malts, herbal smoky bitterness, slightly a touch of nailpolish remover. Don’t like it at all.

Bottle @ benzai. Amber colour with a medium sized off-white head. Smells some wood, some alcohol, some glue, malts. Tastes malts, bitter, sweetish. Annoyingly bitter somehow. Thin to medium body, soft carbo. Ragnampiza (751) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JUN 21, 2014
330 ml bottle. Dark sunrise orange, pretty hazy, with a nice, creamy and persistent off-white head. Good lacing. Relatively fresh aroma, lots of citrus and pine needles, some mild tropical fruits notes, red berries, High level of bitterness, very hoppy and juicy, slightly astringent, but it works perfectly. Correct toffee/caramel malt backbone, perhaps a bit too warming for just 6.3% ABV. Lingering bitter, floral and herbal/resinous aftertaste. Average carbonation, light to medium body, creamy texture. Pleasently surprised with this one! Great. skokott (42) - toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2014
Simply a hop delivery mechanism. Malt completely overpowered by hops which are so incredibly strong they all overpower each other into a big mess. Till, I do love hops and they’re good quality. Like a club soda with herbal bitters. I hate myself a little for liking it but it’s quite good.
The head on this is absurd. :)

lot #459, leuk flesje, lijkt wel iets van vroeger uit een apotheek, ovaal. Bier schenkt als amber, troebel/ondoorzichtig met schuimige witte kraag.
aroma komt floraal, moutig, stro, den en wat hoppig over.
Smaken zijn matig zoet, redelijk bitter, en wat caramel., den nat gras en laurierdrop.
medium body, glad van smaak, lage co2.
Al met al behoorlijke bittere smaken, en ben er ook niet weg van
