1pt, 0.9oz bottle (green glass) poured into a tulip stout glass. Date/batch stamp 12148

Appearance: Bright light copper, thin white head, some islands and few strands of lacing. About halfway through the glass all the lacing gone except for a little bit at the edges.

Smell: Faint buttery malt and some floral hops.

Taste: Quick malt sweetness with some definite buttery flavor, then moves into some very solid hop bitterness - maybe a touch of skunk in there towards the end. Much more bitter than expected for an English pale ale.

Mouthfeel: Light carbonation, a little sticky on the teeth from the hop oils.

Overall / Drinkability: Not bad, but not a great English pale ale either. A bit unbalanced but okay. I guess it's a rather hoppy English pale ale.

Poured from 500mL bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium golden hue with a moderate haze and moderate effervescence. Head is a finger of frothy ivory foam. Quite nice.

Smell: a whiff of slight skunkiness was apparent right when I opened the bottle, but this dissipated pretty quickly. There's a light malt aroma with a light graininess here; reminds me more of a pale lager than a pale ale. That said, there is a light whiff of hops which helps redeem the scent.

Taste: sweetish malt which is quite reminiscent of a Euro strong lager, strangely enough. A bit dank, and not in a good way. Hop character and bitterness are minimal. I'm not a big fan.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a decent carbonation and an engaging texture that, while not exactly creamy, is at least stimulating.

Overall: this beer is probably not objectively bad, but its flavor profile jibes neither with what I know of this style, nor my palate in general.

Sampled on August 23, 2012. It pours golden amber with a small head that lingers and reforms after each sip.

The aroma is strong with pale malts, English yeast, and vaguely hopped along with biscuit and dough.

The body is light to medium with a creamy character on the palate.

The taste is full of English yeast, toffee, malts, and a decent semi-lingering hop bite on the tail end.

500 ml. dicinal" bottle. Orange to gold colour, with normal head that dissappears sooon. Smell is earthy, grains, hops. Palate is maybe too light, fizzy, but smooth. Taste is rough in the beginning, earthy, caramel, citrus notes. Yes, is similar in character to Czech lager, and it's good.
