3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a dark cloudy amber with plenty of sediment. Unfortunately had an enormous white head - way too big. Big mixed citrus aroma, sweet too, and inviting. The taste - WOW, absolutely scrumptious. Sweet well-rounded citrus rather than other pale’s bitterness or sourness with a good balance of bready yeastiness. Long balanced dry finish. Full body with lively carbonation that says "hey, you’re drinking me". Think is the best pale ale I’ve ever had. Pity about the head.

On tap. Enjoyed but nothing to write home about. Yellow beer colour white foam. Some slight citrus aroma but not huge.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden in colour with thin, bubbly head. Toffee fruit aromas. Lots of toffee to taste too, some hop fruit but not too much, slight bitterness lingers. Very light and refreshing.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle - very low hop load - barely any discernible flavour either of hops or malt - watery bodied - if I had closed my eyes, I could have thought this was a middle of the road golden ale or a half decent lager... but US style pale ale? Bollocks.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Coming back to this one for the first time in a few years, it’s a little sweeter than I remembered. The aroma is apricot, ripe tangerine, grain, lemon and a little cut grass late. The grainy flavour and the lemony hops are prominent in the mouth, and that tangerine comes through a little too. Not nearly as good as I remembered.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nuts, spruce, grass, some citrus aromas. Maybe some cheese. Nice cloudy pale gold with good carbonation. Mild bitterness and umami. Seems like an undecided beer, without a prevailing flavour or a balance of several flavours.

A pleasant beer with easy drinking subtle flavours and with some bitterness. From a bottle. Well worth drinking on a warm day.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Samea, vaaleankeltainen olut runsaalla valkoisella, aavistuksen pitsiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Herkullisessa tuoksussa runsaasti eksoottista hedelmää. Maku aika kuiva ja suoraviivainen, hieman viljainen ja vain aavistuksen hedelmäinen. Ei aivan yllä tuoksun tasolle. Varsin hiilihappoinen, kohtalaisen kevyt suutuntuma. Ihan ok, mutta ei mestariteos.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Murray’s, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is a bit metallic, with biscuity malt and citrusy piney hops. Flavour is stale tasting, with a cardboard-like biscuity malt and light hoppy astringency. Not a fan of this one - too stale and astringent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Clear, orangey, deep golden to amber colour with small to average, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Citrusy and slightly piney and grassy, hoppy aroma, biscuity malty background, hints of lemon drops, candied lemon zest. Taste is moderately sweet, biscuity malty, hints of caramel and toffee, all interspersed with citrusy and piney hoppy flavours, notes of lemon, lemon drops, a touch of peanut. Relatively complex on the malty side for an APA.
