4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Marks And Spencer (!) Pours cloudy and golden. Great aroma. Lots of citrusy hops. Very resinous. Bit of tropical fruit. Lovely creamy, carbonation. Taste is tangy citrus. Bit of mango. Very bitter. Maybe a tad too much for me here but impressive none-the-less. Long lasting, mouth coating finish. Great body despite the low abv. Awesome pale ale!

Cask at The Buxton Brewery Tap House. A clear pale golden colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is hoppy of citrusy apple and grape plus grassy, herbal hops, also some smokiness. Taste of dry grapefruit, grape, also orange, grassy, herbal hops and slight biscuit. Light bodied but a watery texture. A dry, grapefruit bitterness in the finish. Smelled promising, but dry, bitter, thin and quite astringent after a while
