Davros' rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20

Pours amber with a fading head. Restrained aroma but there’s some honey, soft spicy hops and crystal-like caramel. The honey notes and speciality malts transfer through well as flavours, contributing a cookie dough-like malt character. The aggressive bitterness wins out though, creating a refreshing finish. Pretty aggressively bitter for a pale. I’d like a hoppier aroma.

This beer does what is says on the can (ha, I said ’on the can’) - it is pale gold with a good 1/4 inch thick persistent white head, which is bloody good going for gas pour. There are fresh hop aromas - herbal and grassy with some ripe Meyer lemon, grapefruit and juiciness. Upon tasting, it has persistent fluffy and prickly carbonation with a mellow flavour profile of fresh fruits - the same as in the aroma with perhaps some tangerine. Mild bitterness carries the flavour for a while making a rewarding sessionable pint. A question though: is this beer a compromise from 8 Wired? It seems a little lighter going that 8 Wired’s usual offerings which challenge both the palate of the drinker and the upper reaches of the ratebeer top 50 lists. I don’t believe this is just a beer for ’suits’, but then I also don’t believe that 8 Wired should have to follow an agenda and has created another tasty drop.

Growler, 10C. Clear pale amber with a white head that lasts well. Aroma of light biscuit, floral with grapefruit, some gooseberry and passionfruit. Light bodied. A little biscuity sweetness, grapefruit, minor tropical and berry notes, firm bitterness. Refreshing and tasty.
