Craft Clerkenwell. Bottle shared with SudsMcDuff. Hazy amber beer, tiny off white head. Palate is slightly soft with a crispy trailing edge. Semi dry. Floral start with nice fresh orange and a touch of tangerine. Whispers of lemon and skunk. Minerals. Dry finish, crispy. Nice beer. Intriguing hop combination - be nice to see an IPA version.
Well done Partizan. Well done you. Tasty tasty classic APA hop fruit notes variable and interesting. I don’t quite have the palate to pick em out but this is tasty stuff. And bitter. Many cheers. rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle at Craft Beer Co, London. Clear golden beer with a nice lasting offwhite head. Wonderful hop aroma, pineapples, citrus, caramel, peach, pears, lemongrass, pine needles, grapes, perfume notes, woody, hay, earthy notes, some raspberries. Hoppy floral flavor, pine, caramel, raisins, grapes, lemongrass, peach, quite bitter, dandelions, minerals, pine apples, hay, earthy notes. Slightly thin bodied but apart from that a wonderful beer. I really hope to try more from this brewery. A true challenger to Kernel. Dommod2011 (706) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2012
So, Andy Smith left Andy Moffat to it at Redemption and set up with Andy Karran to start Partizan. I chose this over the stout as my cupboard is full of the black stuff and I wanted something different. Nice citrus notes, can’t taste the pacific though. May need a little longer in the bottle but it works for me. Love the Alec Doherty art work as well. One to keep an eye on... Leighton (21495) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle shared at The Kernel - thanks Evin! Poura clear orange with a fine, white foam head. Lovely, fresh citrus nose, some tropical fruits. Lifht to medium sweet flavor, dry citrus, some pale malts, light dried grass. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Clean, light dry finish, more dry citrus, light yeast. Some juicy fruit character. Solid APA.

Bottle at CP&K. It pours clear golden yellow with a small white head. The nose is full of tropical fruit... orange, tangerine, mango, tangy marmalade, wood and subtle spice. The taste is straw, pithy citrus, tangerine, grapefruit and decent bitterness with a pretty dry finish. Probably a bit drier than i would like. Not quite there yet, but smells great. I am expecting big things from this brewery in the future! jackl (8215) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Bottle from the legendary Kris Wines. The pour’s a slightly hazy deep amber orange with a fine white head. The nose is sweet tropical fruit salad. Plenty of mango and pineapple, sea salt. Light citrus, a bit of shortbread. Inviting aroma. The taste is more citrus, lemon rind. Wood and a bit of musty cobweb. Light hints of bell pepper. The finish is more sweet mango and pineapple. Bitter finish. Mild astringency. Overall, the aroma’s great. The flavors in the taste aren’t seamlessly integrated, but this is still a good pale ale. Partizan have a great pedigree, and I look forward to seeing how this new brewery develops.
