3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, 500ml from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. Gold to amber with white head. There is a crisp, cereal malty character with this right from the start, added to this is a dry, bittering hop flavour, the overall being long, dry and bitter on the palate. Good depth, a cracking bottled beer that some others should aspire to.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 01/06/12. A bronze coloured beer with a whitish head. A really nice citrussy hoppy aroma. Sharper and more bitter in the mouth. A bit of grassiness amongst the fruits. Probably too bitter but a decent well constructed beer.

Good balance of hops and malt. Excellent served slightly chilled.
The bitters from the head cling to the side of the glass in a reassuring way that made me want another pint immediately.
A terrific product I cant wait to try it again.

Bottle from Bellingers, Grove, Nr Wantage, Oxon 31.01.12 consumed the same day Pours golden with good clarity and a white head. Crisp and dry this is surprisingly hoppy. In fact Iím very impressed, plenty of hops and a cracker at 3.8%, a real punchy, hoppy golden, with some citrus but for me its more about the impressive bitterness, itís just a great beer from a newbie.
