2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from COOP in Trysil. The beer pours deep golden with a big frothy head that sits down and leaves a nice scum head on the beer. It’s surprisingly pale for a pale ale. The aroma is the nicest thing with the beer, flowery english hops (East Kent Goldings?) and vague caramel dominate. The taste is also dominated by flowery hops but where did the caramel go? The taste is watery and not enough malt to balance the hops, which makes the beer come across one-dimensional. It needs 1% more ABV and a lot more crystal malt, IMO.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home from Tesco. Golden orange coloured pour with a frothy fading off white head. Aroma is decent hedgerow berry hop, some esters, pale bready grains. Flavour is composed of light base grains, little grain tannin, husk, BlackBerry and apple, brambles. Palate is light thin and gassy. Not terrible.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. It’s a clear, deep golden beer with a dense, off-white head leaving some lacing. The aroma is a quite malty, bread, caramel and a touch of dried fruits, with some grass and hay. It’s medium bodied and a bit heavy on the carbonation I think, semi-dry, with a decent bitterness. Pale malts, bread, caramel and a grassy, piney touch in the flavor, and a rather short, with some tropical fruits, dried apricots, a touch of bready malts and a subtle bitterness. I wish it was more pronounced all the way, and slightly less carbonated, but it’s a decent and flawless beer I could drink a few of. 151227

Very poor beer. Absence of any flavour. Good head but only redeeming feature. Draft not bottled.
