How am I supposed to take up 75 characters just to say that something’s the same but different? Actually it’s the same but, uh, fresher. It’s fresher. I’m going on break! RIP Mitch Hedberg.

craftyrocker (108) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 31, 2017
Schooner (keg) in a tall glass at Beer Deluxe in Sydney. Tasted for the first time on 20/Dec/17. Didn't know it was different to the bottled version. Appearance: Bronze body. White head which lasted ages. 4 Aroma: Toffee, fruit. Not very potent. 6 Taste: Pale malt, citrus, toffee. Moderate bitterness. 7 Palate: Moderate carbonation, fine bubble size, creamy, viscous. 4 Overall: Nice pale ale. Toffee gets stronger as it warms. Glad I have finally tried this classic; slightly different to modern American/Aussie pale ales. 14

On tap at Cap Tap. Pours copper with a thick beige head and a sort of leather aroma. There is a medium-bodied pale malt flavor with a slightly bitter finish.

On tap fresh at the brewery, gotta love those brewery fresh pales. Hops bounced. Tasted a lot like the bottle version just a bit crisper and maybe brighter with citrus.

livingasghosts (34) - London, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2017 Pours a dark Amber with white head. Great looking beer. Medium body. Light carbonation. Citrus, brown sugar, blackcurrent soothers, woody on the palate. Sweeter and maltier than expected. Pleasant but not overly special.

PhillyCraft (8196) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2017
Draft many times at Flyers games or local dumpy bars that don’t stock smaller craft beers. Pours an orange color with tons of carbonation and a medium but receding head. Notes of bitter pine, wood, lemon, old grapefruit, and toasty malt. Not a bad old school pale when in a pinch.

On tap at Bishops Arms Östersund. Just a great ale and very glad it was at the forefront of the beer revolution. Delicious.

PotjeBier (3838) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2017
Had it first in 1998 in the SF area and regularly after that, but not in the past 10 or so years. Now they had it In De Wildeman, so I thought I might try it again. Mostly clear amber color. Somewhat frothy almost white head. Aroma’s: rather faint, a bit fruity, faint hoppy, a bit malty sweet. Flavor is light bittersweet. Light bodied. Reasonably bitter finish. Probably lost a lot of its freshness on the way....Calls for a retry, fresh in the US.

Pint from tap at Fullers (Heathrow Terminal 2). This pale ale is always a safe choice. Neat, clean, slightly hoppy and consistent.
