3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2012 Bottle from Grape & Grind, Bristol. Pale gold in colour with a momentary white head. Light aroma of grapefruit and lemons, with a suggestion of bread malts and floral air freshener. Flavour was sweetish, with plenty more citrus fruit, solid biscuity malts and a dry, lingering finish. Enjoyable. That’s my century of Arbor beers. Plenty more to come I hope....

On cask at "Cask" in Pimlico, London (6/4/12). Pale yellow, slight haze, weak aroma, but smells mainly of cannabis... Initial taste is "herbal" and "grassy", sticky hops, but also a fairly strong cerealish malt.
Interesting flavour and quite pleasant; balanced and drinkable, but a little watery and the flavour is fairly weak and not very complex. Unusual, but quite nice and showcases this hop well.

On tap at the Craft. Clear pale gold beer, decent bubbly white head. Light semi dry palate. Juicy Magnum hops - a little floral with mellow grapefruit - tangerine. Good floral notes. Semi dry finish. A decent beer - just wish Arbor would up the abv and body a bit.
