Cask at Cloisters, 3.8% ABV. Clear golden body with a thin white head that holds well. Nice lacing. Aroma of green apple, hay and apricot. Flavour is light and fruity - notes of lime, underripe pear and orange. Thin to medium body with a creamy texture. Soft tickle of carbonation. This is a beer I could drink all day long.

A huge fruit bomb hits the tongue from the off followed by a more subtle bitter finish. This hop is amazing & this beer takes full advantage of its taste.

On gravity at Parkstone beer festival; gold, no head; the first beer of the festival is often the best and this wasn’t the exception - a classic grapfruity pale ale, but nicely soft, with lots of grassy hops; straightforward but good and moreish; I tend to avoid Arbor because of the ridiculous and annoying number of one-off beers they brew - I fortunately forgot on this occasion; chances of ever coming across this again are unfortunately very slim, however.
