2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask half-pint outside The Craft Co Covent Garden on 3rd Aug 2016. Wispy head on a pale golden body, the aroma both floral and slightly citrus fruit like. The taste was a lot more bitter than the nose intimated, still some citrus notes in the flavour, but no more floral attributes, just bitter hops. OK more than Wow.

Cask @ Clerkenwell Craft Beer Company, Islington, London. Blonde with a weak appearance and an extremely thin head. Not too strong tasting but still manages to pack in plenty of slightly tropical fruit flavours as well as a good fruity aroma.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at CBC Covent Garden. Straw, a bit of head. Clear as a bell. Light apple/lemon/grapefruit aroma. Hop-dominated. An incredible amount of flavour for such a modest ABV. Massive bitterness with a bit of lemon curd sourness at the edges. Slight body but it fits the beer’s profile. Satisfying aftertaste. A basic beer chock full of flavour.
