COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This quenching brew is crafted in the American west-coast style. It sports a beautiful soft citrus hop aroma which gives way to a round, honeyed-fruit flavor. The finish is crisp and refreshing.

yngwie (14342) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2011
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. It pours a clear, amber body and an off-white head of moderate size. Lovely one tracked hoppy aroma with grapefruit and citrus peel. Some malts in the far back. It’s full-bodied and dry, with flavors of lemon peel and grapefruit. Some malty sweetness, but that’s just in the background. Lasting bitterness. Overall, a very tasteful and pleasant beer, wouldn’t mind more of it, that’s for sure. 110319

Bottle from GBBF drunk at home. Hazy gold lasting white head. Lovely aroma. Resiny hoppy aroma. Hugely drinkable in the mouth. Lovely balanced drinkable hoppy interesting pale ale. I love really good drinkable APAs. After a long day at work, and as the first beer of the day it was great.

Leighton (12237) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2011 Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy honey-brown with a huge white head. Nose is light, sweet malts and metal - not much hops. Some earthiness in the flavor, more metal, and bitterness only in the tail. Crisp finish. Unsatisfying. Not horrific, but the flavor just has no depth and doesn’t go anywhere. By the end of the glass, the flavor has come together a bit - but only a little bit, and this beer is still nothing special. Perhaps the bottle was a little passed its prime?

Hazy dark yellow with a white head. Aroma is sweet, caramel and rather hoppy - grape and pine. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and bitter finish. 020711
