Really enjoyable beer. Strong, floral hoppy aroma. Strongly hopped body, more like an IPA than a bitter, with a dry bitter finish. Good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Pours a clear mid-golden colour, with a medium white head, which lasts fairly well, leaving a decent film of lace. Floral aromas abound on the nose courtesy of the Goldings, along with some sweetish lemon zest and some light biscuity malt. There is a strong citrus hop presence to start, with lemon juice and peel notes, as well as some mild floral hints. The hops develop even further into an IPA-esque grapefruit flavour. There is some mild biscuit and grainy malt in the body, with a dry and refreshing hoppy finish. This is very strongly hopped for a bitter, yet using English aromatic varieties, so it does maintain the character of a bitter. An original, highly refreshing and eminently drinkable ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle [500ml]. Pours a clear bubbly gold with a small semi-lasting fizzy white head. Aroma is grassy and citrusy and unfortunately a bit skunky, damn clear bottles, but it soon passes. Pleasant hoppy flavour, resiny , citrusy and grassy with a nice bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. A hoppy beer can be hard to find out here and I quite enjoyed it.

Bottle in London with Chris. Pours clear, copper with a foamy, white head. Crispy malts on the nose, toast and caramel. Flavor is sweet with some modest cereal, some faint herbal hops and grass. Light bodied with strong carbonation. Slightly dry finish, some nice balance, toasty malts and some caramel sugar. Very easy drinking beer with enough character to keep it interesting.
