Tap @ the Blues House near Camden, large sample, served in a big shaker. Almost clear yellow to golden color, short head. Aroma of citrussy hop, slight lychee, grapefruit, slight cookie and biscuity malt. Medium bitter in taste. I would consider this a session IPA, and a great one for it. Watched the sunday jam sessions at the Blues House, with a crazy Jimi Hendrix impersonator. Photobombed some Spanish tourists. Great laughs with a great beer :-)

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2012 On tap in the Southampton Arms, London on 2nd October 2010. Gold with a white head. Bursts with hoppiness; citric grapefruit and grass. Lovely touch of salt on the tongue. Finish long for a keg beer, and hoppy. Zingy mouthfeel. A great surprise. On tap at Camden Town Brewery Bar, London on 24th August 2012. Clear golden amber with fully lacing white foam all the way down. Hoppy slightly yeasty aroma. Herby hops and citric tang on the tongue. Biscuit malts balance lingering grassiness and citric tangy hoppiness in the finish. Zingy mouthfeel. Very flavoursome.

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.

[Keg at Cafť Pivni, York] Golden pour from the keg with a good white head, and a nice amount of rising carbonation. Aromas of grassy hop, continues on the palate Ė good balance of sweet fruitiness and bitterness, very easy to drink. Cafť Pivni have replaced Sierra Nevada Pale Ale with this, and as good as SNPA is, Iím not complaining [26022011]

EdKing (1981) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2011 Euston Tap. Pours hazy golden. Citrous hoppy aroma. Taste is a burst of grapefruit and citrous. Really good interpretation of an American Pale Ale. Really nice stuff Keg at Brew Wharf. Texture is surprisingly light. Colour like a lager. Lasting sour grapefruit finish.

Great pale ale showing the world how to make a real pale ale that has a distinctive crisp taste that leaves you wanting more. With light undertones of fruit it makes the perfect summery ale leaving you wanting more

Tao. Hazy gold pour. Sharp, hoppy nose. Very grassy, hoppy, bitter. Tastes very "outdoors". Quite a bit of character for a golden ale if thatís what theyíre calling it. Good one!
