Hazy gold beer, good white head. Light floral lemon nose. Palate is light and a little crispy. Light floral start, slightly dry. Nice mild citrus - lemon and marmalade. Touch of tangerine. Semi dry finish. Refreshing.

Bottle from beer emporium. Single hop using US glacier hops. Medium, bitey and slightly bitter, but with citrusy fruit aftertaste. Lovely.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Another great beer in the single hop series from Arbor. This one starts with a nose that is grapefuit and spruce with a sharp bitterness playing around the edges. Pours pale yellow with little head but plenty of lce. Flavour brings in some tropical fruits and citrus but retains that pleasing bitterness with notes of candy, cloves and pine needles and a tiny hint of banana. Finish is more of the same, although the mouthfeel is a little watery - unusual for this series and indeed this brewer. But still good nonetheless.

Bottle from Stirchley Wines and Spirits, Birmingham. Light straw coloured pour with a white bubbly head. A weak aroma with a hint of citrus. The flavour is malty, bitter and slightly dry. A very drinkable beer. These Arbor single hop ales are very special.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask @ CPK. Pours light golden color with a small white head. The nose is light grass, pissed blanket, and sweet cake icing. The taste is light white grape, some honeyed peaches and pine needle. Definitely a strong tangy character to this beer. Certainly interesting. Light body, soft carbonation. Overall, a fairly entertaining half!
