Leighton (10538) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle in the hotel - Rome. Picked up at Johnny’s Off Licence. Pours clear gold, effervescent, with a frothy white head. Aroma holds some dried orange and grapefruit, a bit of pale bread, some spicy pine needles. Medium sweet flavor with some dirty grass and hay, more citrus fruits, a bit of rind, mellow sticky pine. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Somewhat sticky and resinous to finish, more rindy citrus fruit character, grassy bitterness, mild alcohol kick. Decent.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
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.
