3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
People are fairly snobby about this in their ratings, but itís fair to say that this pale ale - which is on the lager end of the scale - has almost single-handedly driven up the base standard for well-brewed beer across mainstream London pubs. Itís fizzy, itís hoppy, itís not very malty but it tastes perfectly fine, like a slightly inferior Brooklyn lager. Arguably thereís not a fantastic amount of subtlety, but there is a lovely golden colour from most kegs Iíve seen, and the high carbonation sustains throughout a pint. Itís a safe but ultimately good beer for the part time beer afficionado. And I mean that in a good way.

Tap at Draft House Battersea. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Nothing amazingly different here, just a fairly bitter and in your face pale which goes down a treat. Bitterness is very pleasing. Nice stuff

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap @ Horseshoe, Hampstead, London, 4,7%. Pours a golden orange with a small, off-white head. Aroma is mostly grapefruit and pine. Taste is also a lot of the same. Mostly grapefruit, some citrus and pine. A light biscuity maltiness on the finish. A lot of carbonation, a bit too light really. One-dimensional and forgettable, not really that good.

Keg at tapping the admiral. Golden with a lot of carbonation. Fresh, light, citrusy, zesty aroma. Slightly sweet, with a caramel bitterness and solid maltiness. Pretty dry, too. OK.
