Poured from a pint sized bottle into a lint glass, coded freshness date. This pours a nice clear amber color with a nice foamy white head. The smell is fresh and crisp a little grassy earthy and nice toffee and caramel malts. The feel is medium. The taste is similar to the smell, quite nice, nice amount of bitterness and caramel, I'm impressed.

My first "English Pale"

A: Clear; color of straw. White, sticky head which didn't last long.

S: Tart, somehow reminds me of a sour. Apple, lemon and grapefruit flavors. Really reminds me of a sour (though it definitely is not). Encouraged to see how it tastes!

T: Tastes like it smells. Yeasty, lots of grapefruit, sour apple with a balanced caramel-malt sweetness underneath to round it out well. Fairly bitter for the pales I'm accustomed to drinking.

M: Medium bodied, light carbonation, wet finish. I wouldn't consider this a good example of a "session beer". I don't find it very refreshing.

O:I enjoyed this beer as a refreshing change from the average, hoppy pales I get in California, but I wouldn't search it out specifically, however I recommend trying it.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pale, golden; pours a tiny head.

Aroma: Refreshing, citrus, hops, maybe grass even?

Taste: Light malt typical for English Ales, dominated by hops, which linger in the aftertaste as well. Fairly light and quite refreshing, but also robust with a good hop content and interesting floral flavours.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied, round.

Overall: A nice beer for a warm day. Nothing spectacular, but a solid beer.

Pours a pale golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma of cereal, grains, light citrus and some yeast. Taste is biscuit malt, some citrus notes, yeast and bitter hops. Palate is a light body, crisp with mild carbonation. Finish is biscuit malt, yeast, some light citrus notes ending with some bitter hops for balance. Overall a pretty good drinkable ale.

A: nice brilliant light amber color, medium carbonation is present and forms a not very big head

S: smell is pretty clear barley, hops all defined by the English ale style.

T: flavor is as should, this beer is according to the style, hops, something like honey or maybe some butter is inside but tastes very nice and natural.

M: sensation is nice, start somehow neutral and changes over time in mouth to a final bitter ending, body is a little bellow medium making this beer well balanced between refreshing and fully flavored.

Dig the cool bottle, don't dig the green glass. Always a worry about skunkiness when imports us the green glass.

Pours a very light orange color with a one finger white head.

Smells like saltines with an astringent burst of hops. There is a bit of the skunk on there, but it dissipates after a few minutes.

Biscuity on the palate, hops are crisp and really balance well with the bread flavors on the front. A by the book English Pale Ale.

A - Poured from a really nifty looking oval bottle. Golden amber color and did not produce much head might have been my pour though.

A - Smells a little skunky to be honest and definitely smells bitter. After letting it breath a little the smells went from skunky to malty and earthy.

F - Bitter, excellent pale ale. The mix of flavors is actually really subtle and nice. Slight metallic taste. After the 3rdish drink it starts to taste bready/yeasty with a nice citrus note in the middle finishes up with a grassy taste which just makes me think organic.

M - Not as thick as I thought it would be... Light carbonation levels... Not much to say it works for the style.

O - I really enjoyed this beer, it's savory and has a really good balance of taste... I think this is the first Organic beer I've had and I sort of thought it would be closer to homebrew but its crisp and clean and just got better as it breathed.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

pours a clear medium yellow/golden colour. good amount of foamy white head.

first thing i smelt was skunk, then a bit of earthy/malty aromas.

very crisp, mostly just taste the malt with a little bit of a burnt flavour in the aftertaste.

though i wouldn't buy this again - it was average and okay to try.
