UPDATED: MAY 3, 2015 Cask at Head of Steam in Dyrham. Nicely surprised, poured light gold colour, flat as every descent British ale should be. Great thick and creamy head, but didn?t last log unfortunately. Great taste of hops and fruits. More ales like this please.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I had this at a bar at Heathrow on a stopover to Amman. The cask pour was a bright, hazy and sparkling gold with a creamy, frothed off white head. The nose is fresh with bright citrus fruit notes as well as light spice hops. The flacvour profile is well balanced with a light toasty malt profile and a bit of hop and citrus tartness. Overall, not a bad brew at all

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale with a distinct hop aroma but as others have said, not overly citrusy. Good level of bitterness but I have to say, I found it a little thin. The strong aroma however makes it quite a drinking experience.
