Beersiveknown (2473) - NORTHERN IRELAND - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle at home from ales by mail. Mid amber, slight head, peaches nose. Very low carbonation and lacking much in way of hops either in bitterness or flavour stakes. Some dry thin maltiness. Maybe my fault for drinking month past BBE date.

Pours a clear golden colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of bread, grains, grassy hops and some citrus. Flavour of pale malts, citrus, some mint, grassy hops, hay and weak grapefruity notes. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and low carbonation. Finishes surprisingly bitter, floral and grapefruity. A rather sessionable APA with good drinkability. Refreshing as well.
