UPDATED: DEC 5, 2015 Pours copper with a thin white head. Aroma of grass, caramel and toffee. Taste is a sweet caramel with a bitter finish. Much better out of a can than on draft. chinchill (5025) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2015
From a cask at the 2015 Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting.
Feel: Medium-light body with light carbonation.
Clear amber, but not good clarity, with a sudsy head.
Very hoppy for a pale ale, so hoppy it could pass for a American Psle Ale or even an IPA. Fruity, herbal and floral.
Vladivostok (485) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2015
Pretty pale without actually being anaemic this tastes just like all the other Dark Star beers that I’ve tried. Aroma and flavour overpoweringly of citrus and a very long, very sharp bitter finish. A bit too strong to be refreshing. Well made but the citrus just turns me off. SlackerMads (3360) - DENMARK - JAN 11, 2015
Cask. Clear copper with a medium sized frothy off white head. Starts off pretty sugary, but some bitterness kicks in. Flavour is mostly tropical fruits; papaya, lychee and sugary malt, toffee. Feels a bit disjointed and heavy on the alcohol. The hops are tasty and I think it would fare better if the malt and alcohol was toned down. beer-yum (1714) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 21, 2014
Sweet citrus aroma and light amber in colour. Enjoyable hop forward balance with a nice clean finish. Very tasty.

[6390-20140627] Cask. Mild orange toast aroma. Slightly hazy, orange body with a long-lasting bubbly off-white head. Toasted bitter malt flavour. Medium body. Good. (7/3/7+/3/15) 3.5

(Glasgow Real Ale Festival 2014 @ The Briggait, Glasgow, Scotland)
£2 bottle. Ribbed plastic beaker in a Travelodge. Aroma of vomited Southern Comfort. Dark orange gold thickly capped with white mousse. Bile and orange, dense tinned peachy iced tea, incongruously bitter fake US flavour with a waft of turmeric powder. No thanks- need a Brew By Numbers to take the taste away.

Golden honey appearance. Strange mix of fruity and creamy aroma. Quite bitter with a raspy flavour. Quite tangy.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2015 Alla spina. Nebuloso color giallo paglierino con un soffice cappello di schiuma biancastra molto persistente. Birra fresca, profumata, fruttata e luppolata, dal gusto mediamente amaro e con un bel finale persistente. Classico esempio di APA, setosa nella struttura e dall’effervescenza gentile. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2014
Draught at the Konttori, Tampere, Finland.
Clear amber colour with a small white head.
Floral and fruity hops, mild bitterness and mild herbs in the aroma.
The flavour is darkish hops, moderate bitterness and dark malt. Not so fresh. Very soft carbonation.
