This is a pleasant enough beer but it suffers from not having one strong flavour. There’s a malty, sweet aspect with a bitter, hoppy edge but nothing really stands out. It could have been great if it wasn’t trying to do a bit of everything.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, from Sainsburys Hessle. Gold, thin but lasting white head and moderate condition. Pleasantly hoppy nose with hints of grapefruit citrus and a suggestion of celery, along with gentle grainy malt, Quite dry in the mouth with a dominant hop bitterness that dissipates to allow a sweet maltiness to gain a foothold briefly before the hops return with a vengeance in the finish leaving a lasting spicy tingle in the back of the throat.

12th October 2011
Crosse Keys Spoons. Hazy gold beer. Residual white head. Smooth palate, semi dry. Fairly low carbonation. Sweetish hops. Peach, tangerine, tropical fruits, grapefruit, even a little Sorachi Ace lemon flavour. A really nice medley! Finishes semi dry. Lip smacking hops. With some condition this would have been an easy 4+
