johndoughty (3890) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy appearance when poured-not a good start. Slightly hoppy with some citrus. Disappointing from a brewery that usually produces the goods.

Very hazy gold beer, tidy white head. Palate is dry and crispy. The Target hops here show tangerine and lemon citrus and a bitter floralness. Finishes crisp and very dry. Mellow bitter linger. Really like the hops but it’s too dry.

RichardW (1461) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2013
BCA, Masson Mills, Matlock. Orange aroma which is very obvious even when pouring. Earthy and dry, with a semi-bitter fruity palate, some grass and leaves too. I got the pour just wrong, with a little bit of sediment in, but that doesn’t spoil a lovely burnished orange colour. Really enjoyed this.
