2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of grapefruit, lime zest, some gingerbread, grass and pale malts. Taste of lime, gingerbread, grain, some grapefruit, slight passion fruit, grass and pale malts. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, grainy, citrusy hop bitterness in the finish. Like a flat lager and lime. The citrusy flavours overwhelm the decent malty body. Disappointed.

1.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
No fizz on opening and no head at all. Looks a lot like cider. Aroma is zingy of fresh lime and something else. Almost completely flat - I don’t know if this bottle is a dud. The zesty lime flavours are ok but accompanied by a flavour which goes along with the smell I couldn’t place - sort of honeyed dirt. The bitterness and the honeyed dirt without any carbonation taste a bit wrong against the slightly acidic lime flavours, like everything is a bit off-kilter. Assuming it’s not this particular bottle’s fault - worst Arbor ever. Strangely, the last of their beers I tried - Red Henry - was the best Arbor ever. Funny.. The Universe. Oh, I just tasted goat, no, sheep. But the wool of a sheep. Poorly cleaned wool of a sheep.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours light orange, hazy, with hard forming head, reduced to stable layer. Lacing. In aroma mostly citrus notes, with lime touch. In taste light sweet. Light body, thin texture, below average carbonation. Short bitter finish. It is very refreshing ale, which I like to have at summer. Bitterness could be much higher, though.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
568ml bottle in Melbourne (exp 28/2/15). Appears clear amber with a decent frothy white head. Aroma and taste has definite lime zest on top of fresh citrus hops and a biscuit malt base. The lime is subtle and not off-putting. Finishes with a satisfying zesty hop bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. A fine Summer quaffer.
