Copper color, gloriously creamy looking white head. Really excellent appearance. The nose is mostly juicy hops, grapefruit etc. The taste light sweet. Pleasant bready malts present. The mouthfeel’s light-medium. Overall nice work.

ComradeK (1100) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium gold, with a large off-white head, which lasts reasonably well, and leaves decent lacing. Pineapple, resin and grapefruit hops mix with caramel malt to create the aroma. Peppery and resin hops up front lead into smooth, slightly sweet caramel in the mid-palate. Spicy and grapefruit hops give it a nicely bitter finish. A pleasant pale ale indeed.

Cimbasso (667) - - MAY 22, 2016
Sampled on draught at the Railway in Blackheath, London. An copper-coloured beer with a thin white head and an aroma of malt and hops. The taste has a good malt component, overlaid with flavours of orange, grapefruit and pine resin. Good mouthfeel. A very nice APA.

Cask@Southampton Arms, London. Amber colour with a mediumsized slightly off-white foamy head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is fruity hoppy, wooden and a bit malty as well. Flavour is citrus, some slight tropical fruits, mild biscuity and bready notes finishing in a bitter fruity and wooden way along with some toffee as well.

Pleasantly floral nose with kiwi, rosehip and plain old lemon notes. Pours a hazy medium gold with a thin but persistant head. Flavour is big, bold and fat with juicy, spicy notes of pine and grapefruit underpinned by a hint of sugarpuffs. Very nice.
