3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Light straw colour with a small head. Very mild aroma with not much in it. Flavours of honey, citrus, perhaps a little apple, but all these are pretty mild. Doesn’t blow you away to begin but then the hops kick in and they give a robust and satisfyingly bitter satisfying finish. Low to moderate carbonation, pretty smooth. A good session pale ale, I think.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
8th December 2014
Craft Islington. Cask. Almost clear paleish gold beer, few pale cream colour bubbles. Palate is light and semi dry. Mild fine carbonation. Light dry pale malts, a whisper of grain. Little apple. Tangy hops. Semi dry finish. Modest bitter linger. It’s a bit better than it sounds and is at least drinkable despite the apple.

Bottle 330ml ( AbM)
Hazy orange color, small off-white head, lace. Aroma has citrus, watermelon, fruity yeastyness. Light-bodied. Flavor has evident citrus from Citra. A bit messy as beer has quite a lot of yeast. Watery and a bit too simple overall.
