A pale hoppy brew with a fresh floral hop character from a blend of English and American hops. A most satisfying and refreshing session beer.

There is a rather off-putting sweaty sock edge in the aroma, but, once you get over that, I found this a drinkable but uninspiring session bitter. The name must contravene the Trades Descriptions Act as the hop accents were muted at best. Not properly conditioned in my view, so it needs another tasting. Cask (gravity) Battersea Beer Festival

Cask at CBC, London on 12th April 2013. Clear gold with white film of part-lacing foam. Grassy, hoppy aroma. Hops and berry fruits dominate the in-mouth experience with delicate strawbery note and mildly savoury touches present. Fruity finish with berries and white wine. Light mouthfeel and body.

Leighton (9874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2012
Cask at Tap East, London. Pours lightly cloudy yellow with a strong, white foam head. Lemony citrus nose, light dough notes. Light sweet flavor, some mellow pale malts, light hay, low bitterness. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Not in top condition. Light sweet finish but in general pretty bland. LIght notes of plastic, some dough. Bland overall; perhaps the beer’s character has been reduced due to poor condition.

DanielBrown (3629) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2012
Gravity at Birmingham Beer Festival 2012. A lovely Golden. Nice flavour, balance etc. The live music on the upper floor is, by this point, utterly excreble.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 21, 2012
On cask at The Bank House. Pours a golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of lemon, pineapple and passion fruit. Similar flavours and nicely bitter with a dry finish. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel.
