downender (8294) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2016
Bottle from M&S, Ealing Broadway. Pale gold in colour, with a slight haze and moderate fizziness. Sharp, citrus, fruit and grassy hops. Light, sweetish malt flavours, with a sherbet kick and moderately bitter finish. Fine.

Beerowl80 (329) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2016
Bottle. Pours hazy golden amber. Aroma of yeast, grass and some mild citus. Taste had a bit of sourness to it with some bitter. Didn’t really taste like an APA to me.

PhillyCraft (6693) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2016
BB backlog, Hazy orange brown color with small to medium head. Flavor is English yeast, lemon, bitter and piney centennial, what, and fruity/sweet malt. The malt and yeast out shine the hops in this one. Ok

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2017 Bottle from M&S. Big fizzy head. Hazy lemon. Slight eggy smell which disappears after a minute. Sweetish, but not overly so. Quite neutral with long dry finish. Pretty good. --- Edit. A few weeks later tried another. Not as good. Rating reduced. Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gegwilson (3588) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2016
Bottle in Mort Subite in Altrincham. Golden with a frothy white head. Spicy lemon aroma. The taste has lots of lemon citrus with spice and a nice bitter finish. Really good.

Trying to get excited about this like I have been for some of their IPAs but it’s a fairly standard pale ale - not particularly exceptional. Some grass and pine notes from the hops. A little caramel sweetness in the malt. Quite light and mildly carbonated. A little bit of saison going on.

330ml bottle from M&S. Big soft white head, a little lacing. Slightly hazy golden amber body. Nose is orange, lime, biscuity malt. Flavour is burnt orange, honey, caramel, good citrus bitterness on the finish lingers nicely. Light carbonation, good full mouthfeel, soft on the palate, a little bit of chew. Really really good.

330ml .Nice Norway shit !we are right with you bros , fuck the oppressive autocratic EU but lets still trade in unity,like Noway has for years . Nose of citrus hops , orange peth , stone fruit , must , grapefruit zest . A murky yellow colour that morphs into urine yellow after a swill of the tulip glass , decent white foamy head too . It drinks rich , fruity and kinda punchy - the 6 % booze is subtle . I could do with a more dry finish , just a ying to the sweet’ish yang . A good pizza kinda beer .

Bottle from Biernavigatie, medium sample. Slight hazy golden color, medium frothy head. Aroma of citrus and grapefruit, slight pine, bit caramel malt. Bit sweet in taste, soft bitterness. Refreshing. Decent stuff.
