2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Láhev 500 ml. Aroma je lehké chmelové s jemný sladovým nádechem. Pěna je jasně bílá, jemná, vysoká a pomalu mizící. Barva samotného piva je zlatá. Chuť je vcelku mdlá, je zde znát jen slad s opravdu slabým banánovým nádechem, který rychle přechází do držícího finiše který není příliš příjemný. Čekal jsem od tohoto piva trochu něco víc, postrádá pestrost.

Pale hazy yellow. Thick white head, doesn´t last very long though. Citric, hoppy nose. Spicy flavour. Acidic, chemical taste. Fruity. Great bitterness. Refreshing with segments of herbs and yeast. Medium to full bodied.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is a bit unpleasant at first. Some grassiness, but my first impression was cat fur (not kidding). Mellows out a bit with some maltiness, but not really good. Colour is standard amber, bit of a head that leaves some residual foam. Not much lace. Taste is non-existent at first, then changing to bad. Not bitter, but astringent. This is really not a good beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle from the LCBO
Pours a medium pale orangey yellow
Better then most macro beers but only average overall
I think this is a Golden ale and not an ESB

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle, "Circlemaster". Slightly hazy, pale golden colour, small white head disappears quickly, minimal lacing. Intense aroma of apples and malt, some hops. Hoppy, sour citrus notes and bitterness dominate at first, but the finish is slightly sweet, with a wee touch of banana lurking through. The sour-and-sweet character makes Circlemaster a very refreshing pale ale (a premium esb it is NOT), though I’d marginally prefer the same company’s WychCraft blonde.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours yellow with thin white head with good lacing. Nose is slightly skunky. The front half of the taste is lost in skunk. The latter half is hoppy and might be pleasant if this beer had not been ruined by ultraviolet light. Sigh.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
This had a terrible skunky smell, I could really hardly drink it. There was some hoppiness and the bottle art was cool - but the smell was just unbearable. If I have a chance, I may give this another try, it just seems like it should be better!

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. It’s pale yellow with minor white head. The aroma mainly consists of hops. The flavour is sweetish with hops and has a watery after taste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light copper hue. Some carbonation. Pleasant enough looking head. Mild aroma of yeast, malt, and a little of hops. Reasonably bitter with a bit of malty aftertaste/residue in the mouth. Didn't taste a whole lot different than Fiddler's Elbow to me.
