Bottle at Mother Kelly’s, Bethnal Green on 30 August. Poured a hazy golden colour, with a dense white head. Aroma of orange blossom, sweets and hay. Grainy flavour, with sweet mango and pineapple. Finish was tinned fruit, peaches and a slightly metallic note.

My Bottom Line:
White grapefruit and floral undertones surf this brew’s soft, plump mouthfeel, leading to resinous bitterness and much drinkability.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sliver of foam sits atop the hazy blond.
-The flavour profile is hop dominant.
-Aroma could be more refined.
-This is very close to being what the Americans call a Session IPA nowadays. Put it on cask and it becomes an English Golden Ale though. ;)
On tap at Bir&Fud.

Semihazy yellow body, white head. Aroma has american hops, grapefruit and exotic fruits. Flavour has toasty malt, mellow fruits, fresh and bitter hoppiness, citrussy. Dry finish, some lactic yoghurt. The mildness on hops is a nice thing.
