.A good example of a new world pale ale this beer was pithy, resinous and clean with a floral aroma. The beer really benefitted from its 60 minutes continual hopping with centennial, cascade and amarillo,

2nd June 2011
On tap at Market Porter. Hazy amber beer, residual white head. Light palate, semi dry. Tangy minerally hops - a little orange and tea! Semi dry finish. Skewed and very dissapointing - wish I had re-tried this at Craft Beer.

Cask-conditioned at the Colston Yard, Bristol 15/05/2011. Pale amber with a decent white head. Big hoppy aroma of grapefruit, oranges and pine resin. Flavour was also dominated by citrus fruits and pine, with a touch of sweetish malt providing some balance, before a very bitter finish with accompanying pine. Excellent.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask, handpump at The Live & Let Live, Cambridge, 03.06.11 Pours mid amber with a white head leaving a light filminess across the top of the beer. Fruity and with a goodly dose of hops on the nose and soft pithy grapefruit and in the mouth with a juicy refreshing grapefruit bite. A great beer to try alongside the Oakham Scarlet Macaw and whilst I preferred the latter I think that this would be easier to drink a session of, very good beer. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 3.9
