An absolutely fantastic ale, packed full of flavour, grapefruit, grape and citrus. Long finish, just a class above which I wasn’t expecting.

BeerViking (3912) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2011
Cask at the Magpie & Crown, pale yellow with a big white fluffy head. Peppery and herby hops on the nose, then a crisp dry hoppy body, light malt body yet with notes of grape and melon. Very dry and hoppy finish with lasting grapefruit bitterness.

alex_beacon (5) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2011 does not count
hand pull and cask at the beacon hotel, Sedgley. Great pale colour, fairly good head retention, disappointingly lacking in body, nice citrus fruit aroma, dry throughout, fairly pleasant session beer.

Nice new brewery, to me. It was refreshing this one and a little sweet, a little herbal too although not too bitter. At GBBF 2010.
