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 (1756) - 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.

lewisbevis (6) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2012 does not count
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

flying_pig (832) - SCOTLAND - AUG 18, 2012
On-Tap at Spuntino, London
Hop filled to begin with an almost like an American style amber ale with a lot of summer fruits fighting to be noticed and a little citrus as well. There is some mild grapefruit and touches of wheat as well.
Amber orange with a thin but foamy white head on the top of the beer that stays throughout. There is some good lacing.
A good mix of fruit and hops to begin with along with some mild pine notes and definitely some grapefruit following this. The taste is quite light and summery with a slight bitter kick right at the end.
Smooth on the palate with a medium body and carbonation levels about the same. There was a subtle alcohol kick around the middle to back end and a refreshing, easy going finish that was slightly bitter and quite fruity.

An enjoyable beer and whilst nothing outstanding I was wishing it came as a full pint rather than just a half in the restaurant I ordered it.

maneliquor (2784) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 29, 2013
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
