From a 500ml bottle. A dark gold with an orange tinge. A thin, white head with open bubbles around the rim.

Smells strongly of tangerine, honeysuckle, and pine. Not subtle at all.

Flavour is citrus and pine. But there's a metallic note as well. Tastes like an large-scale brewery poured in an artificial flavour labeled 'New World Hops'. Not convincing.

Medium to thin mouthfeel with some carbonation and a hoppy astringency.

Looks ok. Bitterness is good. Not sure about everything else. I like hop-forward, american-style pale ales but this is such a weird, unauthentic, unbalanced offering.

Deep golden colur, small head that fades oon. Smell of damp earth, with floral notes, citrus and fruits. Medium body, good carbonation. Taste is a bit dry, hops, spices, sour.

Amber coloured beer with onion and tangerine oil in the nose. Sugests interesting hops and indeed the beer is pretty hoppy for an English pale ale. The hops are pretty spciy and astringent. I was less keen on the dry feel.
