500ml bottle from Ales By Mail
BBE 08/2013 - Pours golden orange with a large foamy head. Aroma of citrusy hops, lemon, grapefruit and grass. Taste is hoppy and mildly caramely with notes of tangy fruits, citrus, grass and grapefruit. Finish is bitter and slightly malty with some tangy notes. Okay, quite basic but tasty pale ale.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hand-pulled pint in Ye Old Fighting Cocks, Oakengates on 29 Jun 2013.
Very pale in looks, weak urine yellow in fact: good white bubbley head that tried to stay the distance, but failed.
As you’d expect from a brew using Citra hops, this leaned heavily towards a citrus based flavour and aroma.
I know this beer is very popular with a lot of Real Ale drinkers and craft beer fans alike, but I’m fed up with so may ’samey’ tasting brews using citrus flavours to refresh us Brits: I want deep amber brews with a malt and hop balance when I go into a pub, not this ’new wave’ of light lager look alikes with lemon duck toilet cleaner as a base!
I’ve tried to score objectively.
