Bottle Asda. Pale gold, thin white patchy head, leaves some lacework. Nice citrus hop nose, well hopped palate, some slightly sweet malt there as well. Lingering finish. Tasty brew, tho not the best from Black Sheep, could perhaps do with an extra 1% ABV??

gegwilson (2249) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle from ASDA. Golden with a white head. A pretty typical golden ale. Some spiciness and citrus with syrupy notes. Grapefruit notes too. OK

Dervock (661) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle - pours yellow with a small head. Aroma is dominated by the hops (I think mainly the fuggles) with a bit of straw malt. Mild dryness across the palate, hoppy finish. Lively carbonation.

a nice pale ale from black sheep grass, citrus, pale, golden, clear, frothy, medium sweetness, . the black sheep brewery very rarely disappoints and this is another fine example

jmgreenuk (5957) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. Poured a clear light amber with a frothy white head and some broken lace. The aroma is light grassy hop citrus. The flavour is medium bitter with a woody hop bitter, light metallic, light sweet palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Served on the cool side. More of a golden ale than a bitter. Iíd buy this again.

McTapps (5934) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - AUG 6, 2014
Bottle bought at the local Tesco in Eastbourne. Pours out in a clear deep amber colour with low head and flat body.Aroma of caramel and hops with some leafy hints. Taste of copper, hops, light malt, barley, bread and cake. Finishes of thin with some flowery and hoppy hints. Boring and uninspiring but ok.

MichaelAwesome (5920) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 6, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, Eastbourne shared with McTapps. Starting off with some hops and descent malt combined with some nuts. Developing an unusual yeasty nose and tasty which hit me really tough. Had problems to finish that one.

ManVsBeer (6251) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle from Asda. Copper-gold with a thin head. Good pale ale nose that holds most of the fruit flavours in this one. Itís taste is understated but itís light texture means itís an easy drinking ale.

ElectroMod (126) - - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle from Tesco Broughton. Pours a clear gold colour with a thick pillowy white head. Aroma is metallic and lemony. Taste is mild hops, bread and citrus. Slight bitter finish, and little lacing. You get what you pay for with this one; cheap and cheerful - nothing outstanding.

johndoughty (4531) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle. Bought from Morrisons Bilston. Blonde with a small head. Not very hoppy and not much flavour apart from a slight bitterness. Cheap but not so cheerful.

dfearnley (1370) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
Aroma of lemon and bread and a little hops. Taste is mostly bitter, some bread and malts. Itís okay.
