3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the pencilandspoon Beer Swap project.
I was slightly concerned with the pale lagerish smell as I uncapped it, however, once in the glass all was well. Pours a clear, pale gold with a fluffy, lasting white head. Nose of sweetish malts, orangey/grapefruit citric hops, candied fruits, wheat/hay and berry notes that emerge as it warms. Taste is again sweet pale malts and juicy, fruity citric hops, has a medium body, a slightly oily mouthfeel and ends dry and bitter with a little wheat in the finish. It’s not a bad beer by any means but for me the flavor falls just short of the promise from the aroma, if they could match that it would go from good to great.

Pint at the Dun Cow, Durham. Very pale gold with a rising curtain of cloudy bubbles and a thin, frothy white head. Barely any aroma, but what little there is is striking mostly as hay. Very watery, faintly bitter hoppy flavour. Akin to a handful of hay in a glass of water.

Godt humlet, let sødlig øl, med en hel del frugtsmag. Citrus til at starte med, der går over i en mere bred og fyldig smag. God øl!

Drank at two pubs in Yorkshire, one of the best pale ales ive ever tried.
Nice pale colour, with the most wonderful creamy white head and a great array of delicate flavours.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at The Vine, Manchester.
I see this beer everywhere so it must have some sort of following but I fail to see the appeal. It’s a run of the mill golden ale, pale amber in colour with an enduring white head. It has biscuity malts and a long, bitter finish but I detected none of the advertised citrus. A little watery on the palate. Maybe it was an interesting beer once but it’s nothing special by today’s standards. Perfectly drinkable though.
