Pleasant aroma with light copper color, good hop with a slight bite at the finish. Clean and crisp and good for what it is - a nice American Pale Ale. Really the "classic" for this style.

355ml bottle from Tesco. Appearance looks a bit watered down; 1-finger off-white head dissipates very quickly. Aroma is a nice smack of pine and citrus. Taste is a nice malt-y backbone with a lingering bitter finish. Palate is OK but it deteriorates over time, getting quite flat.

355ml bottle. Nice gold/orange one with small white head. Aroma is citrus, hops and pine. Nice biter taste with also a sweet something I can’t pinpoint. Doesn’t stay long in the mouth tho.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2017 pours amber/ golden with a loooong lasting head. carbonation from the can spot on. says served chilled, but gets better as it warms to room temp. lovely sweet piney smell, short bursts of tropical then bitterness kicks in to clean the palate. good malty goodness too, almost sweet, but bitterness saves the day. this is a well balanced gem of a beer - a real classic! only drawback is pricey (in Australia)...

Macieg (39) - Lipno/Wloclawek, POLAND - JUL 19, 2017
Butelka kupiona w supermarkecie w UK. Piwo o barwie jasnego bursztynu, delikatnie zmetnione. Piana srednioobfita, drobno i sredniopecherzykowa, utrzymuje się do końca picia. Wzorowo wyglądający pale ale. W nosie słód, lekkie klimaty ziemiste, delikatnie cytrusowe. W smaku głównie slod pale ale, delikatna chmielowosc. Bardzo pijalne, rześkie i poprawne pale ale bez wad

Amber/orange with large dense white head. Malty aroma with citrusy notes. Nice balance of malt sweetness and hop bitterness with it being just perfectly leaning toward the bitter. Medium bodied with a moderately bitter finish. Classic American style pale ale.

Cerveza color ámbar corona de espuma de baja retención de burbujas compactas. Aroma a cítricos, sutil toque a dulce. Al paladar consistencia ligera, con notas dulces de inicio que se ve opacado por un amargor ligero que perdura en el retrogusto. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

czlowiekmotyka (310) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUL 17, 2017
In terms of texture - really good. Aroma scarce and not pleasant rather lager like. Fine bitter palate but too brief and not hoppy enough.

chenko (13) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 15, 2017
Aroma - More malt smells with bread, cereal, caramel. Appearance - Pours a dark gold to light amber, crystal clear and a thin white head. Taste - Nice smooth malt sweetness, very clean, light to medium bitterness with a little floral hop flavour. Mouthfeel - light to light medium body, medium carb with a good bitter finish that lingers around awhile. Overall - Really good balanced American pale ale that’s just easy to drink but still full of flavour.
