Towey1989 (966) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2015
Cask at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A clear deep golden colour with a foamy white head. Starburst sweet aroma of lemon, gooseberry, peach, passion fruit and some caramel. Taste is also fruity of gooseberry, peach, passion fruit, some lemon, slight apricot, subtle grapefruit, resin and a little caramel. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A bittersweet, fruity, lightly resinous hop bitterness in the finish. Quite a sweet pale ale but so fruity and flavourful. Big NZ hops, light resin and subtle sweet caramel. Delicious.

Tselloufc88 (276) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle from Warwick Real Ale. Not much of a looker, quite murky! Aroma is peach, tropical fruits, sweet malts, pine needles. Taste is a nice medley between citrus fruits, peach, pine, floral notes and the sweet malt background that the bottle stated. Finish is fairly long lasting but not too bitter. I like this.

Pours copper with a huge foamy head. Aroma is packed full of tropical fruits! A sweet initial taste, a bitter middle and a malty finish.

Leighton (15381) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2015
Keg at the Commercial Rooms, JDW - Bristol. Pours cloudy gold with a tight, creamy off white head. Crackery pale malts I’m the nose, some faded pine, ripe orange. Medium sweet flavor with tangy citrus fruits, orange, pale bread, light grassy and piney bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Lightly resinous on the finish, with hints of alcohol, tangy tangerine, orange, lightly toasted bread, crackers, pine needles, melon. So so overall.

Live rating. Pint bottle from M&S Newcastle. Served in one of those gently sloping San Miguel glasses. Soupy muddy yellow with a huge, proud, dense off-white head. Aroma of my son’s P.E. kit after a week in the bag, and marmalade on wholemeal toast with a sprinkling of Lancashire cheese. Big slurpy stewed and macerated citrus fruits, lurking coconut, tropical fruit salad, a hint of aniseed? Slick mouthfeel, astringent finish. A bit of a treat.

568ml bottle from Marks & Spencer, Camberley. A hazy amber pour with a dense white head; fruity aroma; fruity gooseberry taste and a creamy texture; with a persistantly bitter finish. Rather subdued for NZ Pale Ale.

Bottle ( one pint ) Unusual slightly hazy appearance.Hoppy bitterness with some sourness. Not as good as many of their beers and a bit of a let down.
