3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It’s drinkable and smooth but I was expecting more from a beer from the British Isles. It was poured from a bottle so I must concede shipping may have had something to do with that.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask (handpump) at the King William IV, Leyton on 6 April 2012. Clear pale gold throughout. Massive tangy hop character in the aroma, carrying through strongly into the flavour. Quite firm mouthfeel. Strong bitterness, tending slightly towards astringent. Very tasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Brodies. It pours golden yellow, with a thin white head. The nose is leaf, raw hop, floral, grass, manure and farmyard. The taste is pine, resin, honey, leaf, spice, grass, floral, grapefruit and some nectarine, with a long bitter finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Decent.

6th April 2012
The second version of this beer was intended to be another collaboration but isn’t as the Steel City guys could not make it down to London.
Very light haze on this gold beer. Tiny white head. Light semi dry palate. Juicy hops! Resinous Nelson grape with a little citrus (grapefruit noticeable) and some floral notes. Light semi dry finish. Nice!
