Cask at the Brew Wharf, London, thanks to Ang. Pours clear, light orange-yellow with a bubbly, white head. Nice dark grassy nose, some grainy rye, a bit of earth. Medium sweet flavor with a strong hop presence, some tangy rye, ripe citrus. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Medium bitter finish, moderately sweet with a nice, lasting rye tang, citrus fruits and particularly some lemon. Nice beer.

Hazy amber beer, little off white head. Smooth palate, semi dry. Very mild rye spice. Nice smooth hops, rich without being too bitter. A little mild skunk well tuned in with mild tropical fruits. Mango and a little fruit salad. Finishes crisp and dry with mild bitterness. A really approachable and well flavoured pale ale.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned handpump Brew Wharf London 16/05/12. A copper gold coloured beer with a white head and lacing. Sweet rye notes throughout which dominate the hops somewhat in the mouth, although there’s great citricity in the nose. i do find rye can be a bit cloying although it does give good body. Well brewed no doubt but a bit heavy for me.
