mt_hall (153) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Bottled. Copper coloured with some haze and a thick head of fine foam. Tropical fruit aromas and some pine too. Sweet tropical fruit in the mouth too, obviously hoppy, but the bitterness and dry finish aren’t overly astringent. Easy to drink and tasty, but a little simple.

Jimthechap (1989) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 28, 2015
This was an immensely likeable beer. It appeared hazy orange with a white head. Aromas of fresh grapefruit and orange peel hoppiness. Indeed, it smelled like a bit of toast spread thickly with Seville orange marmalade which was evident in both aroma and flavour. It seemed to be much more bitter than most English ales I have tasted (a good thing in no small measure), it was tart and refreshing and a bit of a treat. I was going to say it was like Thornbridge Jaipur, but it was better than that.

Bottle from Eltham Wines, Eltham. Amber pour with a white head. Lemon, fresh herb and pine aroma. Bitter citrus feel in the flavour. Long, bitter tang. Tasty.

AshtonMcCobb (3674) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 9, 2015
Bottle from Saucy Pears. Appearance - amber with a lovely fluffy head. Nose - red fruits and tangy orange. Taste - more tangy orange going into marmalade. Tangy lime finish. Palate - medium bodied with a big tangy texture and a long dry and tangy finish. Overall - nose a bit gentle but better thereafter.

BlackHaddock (4692) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2015
Hand-pulled half-pint in the Pheasant, Wellington Shropshire on 28th April 2015. Good looking deep amber body with enough hops to float a Battleship. I like West Coast style APA’s and this had just enough bitterness to give it that sort of taste, too hoppy for some I’m sure, but it worked for me.

Svesse (6844) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2011
(Cask at Southampton Arms, Kentish Town, London, 19 May 2011) Amber colour with foamy, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with grapefruit, orange peel and generous doses of fresh hops. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of grapefruit, pine needles, orange peel and lots of fresh hops in the finish. Medium body, with balanced sweetness, fairly bitter. Nice one.

Cask at Cask Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico, London. An amber coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Hoppy, fruity aroma. This was a fresh pint, tasted hoppy, citrus fruit, bitter, pine. Rich tasting and easy to drink, pretty good stuff.
