McTapps (6479) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle from Sainsburys in Folkestone. Pours out in a clear golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of hops and straw. Taste of mild hops, straw, grass, mild citrus fruits and pears. Easy drinkable and refreshing. A solid beer.

Surprised at how good this beer is. Definite American style to the hopping over what I guess is English pale malt. Quite bitter result but clean and zingy. Get a bit of floral but orange blossom and back to my regular marmalade analogy. This time fine cut from Waitrose. Itís a classy beer!

Bottle. Kept in my dark cellar after buying but as itís in a clear bottle it may have been affected on its supermarket shelf and came out tasting malty and skunky and a touch soapy. Golden, next to no head.

wheresthepath (2115) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle that Dad shared- cheers. Light amber with a moderate white head. Some lemon, lime and pine but itís all very restrained. Little bitterness. OK flavourwise, just needs less timid use of the hops. Champion beer of Britain? I really donít think so.
