3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2016 My first Oskar Blues product and Dale’s apparently is their bell cow. Can, of course, that is poured into a tulip glass. Presence is a medium amber giving a generous, almost white, foam, which leaves a decent lace sip by sip. I get a whiff of melon and grass. A very nice hoppy intro, just a touch of sweetness, leading to a bitter finish. 6.5% alcohol for an APA, not bad. Good start, OB. I will be back.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from a local Tesco, consumed at home. Dark gold, almost tawny with a loose white head which dissipates quickly. Massive resinous scent with lashes of mango and white grape. Taste is surprisingly bitter with a suggestion of sour. Notes of orange juice and dry Chablis in the finish, but there is also assertion of the biscuity malt. An incredibly intense pale ale, I’d love to try this one again sometime.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear light amber color with off-white head. Aroma is quite malty and slightly buttery with some orange and earthy hops. Taste starts also slightly malty but then the hops kick in with earthy bitterness and lingers with grapefruit pith. Medium body and carbonation. Overall it’s a really well made, classic pale ale.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tastes like a west coast ipa. Harsh pine, orange peel and floral, so many beers like this that I don’t like, must be one of the c hops

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Burk från SB. Klar mörkorange med högt, fluffigt vitbeiget skum. Tydliga inslag av granskott, kåda och apelsinzest i doften, tillsammans med lite bröddeg och honung. Mediumkropp, något lättare. Ligger nära i smaken, med en lite stickande och klibbig beska.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from J’s. Pours a clearish light amber with a finger of foam that dissipates quickly. Lots of pine resin and orange in the nose, bready malt and sourdough bread. Musty orange on the palate, citrus, good malt character. Medium body, well-balanced. Bitter finish with some lingering pine notes.
