UPDATED: OCT 27, 2017 Just a good pale ale. I’m not a huge fan of IPA’s but this isn’t that bitter and tastes great nomoreluke (9) - - OCT 24, 2017 does not count
Not impressed at all. I'm a massive fan of American Pale Ales in general but this one felt like a mass-produced approximation of an apa. Aroma promised something that the taste did not deliver. Too sweet, not balanced at all. Weak tasting

Good beer. Not really my cup of tea. Ok. Little bitter. Needs to be very cold. Wouldn’t drink more than one.

The smell is all kinds of hoppy with notes of grapefruit and some grass. There's even a touch of sweetness from the malt in the nose.
The taste is big on hops up front with the grapefruit noted in the smell though the grassiness plays a minor role. Midway through there's a good caramel malt sweetness that offsets the hop bitterness nicely creating some really good balance but..the hops take over again near and through the finish.
Other notes: the body on this pale is really good and the drinkability, despite the 6.5%abv, is very high for me.
Bottom line: This is a great APA! 'nuff said!
Promising is appearance but generic tasting and not as enjoyable as other more earthy pale ales. As a friend of mine harshly put: "It's a dishwashing soap with a classical label". szymonskc (1041) - Skórcz, POLAND - OCT 12, 2017

Una APA cercana a una IPA, color ámbar, sensación alcohólica y mucho lúpulo y caramelo. macca147 (626) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 5, 2017
355ml can from Tesco. Pours a amber gold with a thin beige head. Aroma: Caramel malt, peach, mild citrus, pine notes. Complex aroma. Taste: Peach, caramel malt, citrus, mild floral flavours. Thinnish body. Mildly sweet, followed by moderate lingering bitterness. Quite tasty and easy drinking. Potent for a pale ale. Definitely a great pale ale!

355ml can. Pours amber, clear, with a medium head that diminishes slowly. Aroma is citrus and taste is well balanced with medium bitterness. Light oily texture with medium carbonation. Good beer.
