Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a hazy light amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is grassy hop and fruity. The flavour is medium to weak bitter win an ever so slightly sour, grapefruit citrus watery palate. Lacks a little flavour compared to other Arbor beers I’ve had.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Frank (camper) consumed at Bromyard Folk Festival Bar, Herefordshire Friday 13th September 2013 forgot where I got this beer, possibly ’Jacks’ Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon Gold in colour with white head. I found this a rather watery, thin beer that offered very little. Ok there are hops here and it is a little bitter but it all appears rather too subtle and safe. Maybe I was thirsty and rushed it, maybe it was just not that great, whatever, I didn’t really go a bundle on it and moved swiftly onto the next offering. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, Slightly cloudy yellow. Lovely grapefruit hoppiness with lots of flavours floating around considering its comparitively low strength. A lovely beer. This brewery can do wrong for me.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beer Gonzo. Clouded gold with a slim white collar. Sweet tropical nose with lychee, tomato stem; hints of spliff and blackcurrant. Excellent juicy tropical hop; soft condition; soapy floral and restrained Fruit Salad hop. Stewed tea with dunked biscuit to finish. Good balance of hop and malt. Underrated. But could use a lick more bitterness and fizz for me.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle from Vino. lovely citrus aroma - nice and crisp, the nugget takes some of the earthiness away from the simcoe - could be a tick sweeter and I wouldn’t mind. a little flat and the taste doesn’t really live up to the promise of the aroma. not at all a bad beer however.
