Hazy gold beer, good frothy white head. Palate is airy and dry. Hops are a little spicy with mild lemon and dry grapefruit pith. Dry finish with a medium bitter linger. Decent.

Bottle @ The Train Tasting Pt II. The pour’s gold with a small head. The nose has notes of elderflower. Some weird bell pepper. Stewed green veggies. The taste is grassy hop. Green biomass. DMS I assume. Light body, fine carbonation. Others seemed to think the beer was OK, so I might be crazy.

Leighton (18745) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle during the High Speed Tasting Pt. II on the train back to London after the Black Country Bus Tour. I snagged this one from Cotteridge Wines. Pours lightly cloudy yellow with a creamy, white head. Nose of hay and minerals. Light sweet flavor with dry hay, lemon rind and mellow biscuits. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Dry finish with more mild lemon and flinty minerals. So so.

Bottle on the Black Country Train Tasting 2nd installment, 06/07/13, thanks to Leighton for the pour. Hazed pale golden with a thin white head. Nose is hops, fruits, orange sherbet. Taste comprises faded hops, orange zest, bitter fruit notes, light mineral tones. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, light bitterness in the finish. Ok bearing in mind it was a few months out of date.

Bottle. Yellow with a small head. Citrus and hops blend together with a bitter finish. Pleasant and easy to drink. Another winner from this brewery

RichTheVillan (6903) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; hazy yellow pour with foam white head, slight hop aroma & washing up liquid the citrus kind, not much hop in the taste maybe past it’s best, quite refreshing with heavy carbonation.

Pudding (229) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2012
500ml bottle Cotteridge Wines B30. A disappointment. Little flavour. The only sensation was of the sensation in the mouth of CO2.

Shared from a bottle on the train back from the Borefts Bier Festival 2012,  Brouwerij de Molen, day one.  Thanks jmgreenuk! Pours a hazy yellow. Flavors of citrus and fresh cut grass.
