COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottle Conditioned; Regular.

Deliciously fruity, hoppy & refreshing, fantastic summer ale.
A real showcase of the fabulous Soracchi Ace hop, Acer has beautiful aromas of citrus, berries and elderflower, with a very fruity palate and a lovely refreshing citrus aftertaste leaving you wanting more.

TheCametron (1730) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 25, 2012
Cask at The Blue Blaze. A textbook bitter. Grapefruit, grass and lemon zest to the hops. A nice degree of malty sweetness. A nip of bubblegum but maybe that was the hops too. Bitter finish. Quite full bodied for such a low ABV.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Holborn Whippet, Holborn, London. Gold with slight head. This was really bland and watery for some reason, thin, malty, didn’t get the hop. Nothing special.

JorgeLee (1135) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2012
Cask in the Port Street Beer House. Middle golden colour with smallish head. This is indeed a very hoppy beer, strong aromas and flavours. Despite the low alcohol content, this is sufficiently well-balanced to hold the hops, which taste kind of green, dry, bitter and especially grapefruit. Long bitter finish. Excellent tasty beer.

BeerViking (2288) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2012
Cask at the Magpie, amber-gold with lacy head and a very faint haze, nice crisp herb and citrus hop nose with hints of pineapple and grapefruit, dry-bitter on the palate but with a nice biscuit and faintly melon malt underlay.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 7, 2012
On cask at The Stockbridge Tap. Pours a golden colour with a decent white head. Lemon, citrus aroma with caramel, yeast and grass. Similar flavours with an oily mouth-feel and a dry finish.

Aniela (2304) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 16, 2012
Cask at Euston Tap, London. Golden clear beer with a offwhite head. Very nice hoppy aroma and flavour. A nice surprise :-)

stravale (2034) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JAN 10, 2012
Cask @ York Tap 060112
Golden amber....thin white head...good lacing
Not much on the nose - some caramel malt...Taste of light caramel malts...biscuity malt...bit of grassy citrusy hops.
Palate - soft carb..thin to medium body...pit powdery. Finish - hop bitterness comes through more....grassy straw hops...then a cereal digestive biscuit malt tail...cleans well...quite a complex finish.
Overall - A really nice 2 stage finish - very good for only 3.8% abv.
