A gift from my wife after her visit to Phoenix. 330ml bottle. Pours a gold hazy colour with a white head that leaves lacing. Aromas of citrus, spice & malt. Tastes of citrus, grapefruit, flora, spice & malt. Aftertaste has a lovely spicy bitter finish. Overall a bottle I really enjoyed, and would love a second.

Pours a golden copper color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is floral, citrusy and soapy with a bit of malts behind it. In the taste, light citrus, herb and earthiness. Has a solid bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth and well carbonated. Overall, this is a solid pale. Drinkable all day.

Amber color in the glass with a decent head. The second pouring hazes over a little and I see some sediment in the bottle. Average carbonation. The smell is just plain unusual, not beery at all. A whiff of the old laundry basket, left-over fish and chips.

I'll make allowances for this being an English style of Pale Ale, but there is definitely a strange flavor going on here. It tastes something like spoiled fruit which I hope is due to There is an increasing bitterness in the aftertaste. Maybe this is some kind of English nonsense, but I think they accidentally brewed the socks and washed the hops. From the 12 oz can bought at AJ's Fine Foods in Chandler.

Picked up on 1-21-13 as part of a mixed sixer from Fry's. Best by 4-6-13.

Beer poured golden orange with no head.

Nose is muted malts.

Taste is cereal malts with a grapefruit hop finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and pretty smooth.

Overall not a bad beer but nothing special. I do like the grapefruit finish though.
