3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Ham-fisted pouring [into a shaker] left a large, frothy white head. Clear, almost copper-gold colour, Massive amount of aroma, both citrusy, but also sweet caramel and grape [not grapefruit]. Nice taste, good sweet/bitter balance. Unfortunately not full bodied or lasting enough. Smooth, oily palate. Overall, nice, but wouldn’t buy it again unless hard up for choice. [rating bumped up by 0.1 upon realising I was being a bit harsh].

Bottle shared by Dutchdrebus @ weekly tasting. Clear orange to amber color, small off - white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, hops, decent bitterness. Not bad at all but I feel it could be a bit more outspoken. Medium body and carbonation.

Not sure my curiosity was satisfied. It is an interesting mix of traditional English hops and new world citrusy hops alright. But the traditional hops won. It’s lacking in sharpness and a little on the sweet side.

Bottle. Clear amber, frothy head. Fruityish caramel, some toffee. A bit boring, actually, did not make me curious at all.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2013
May 2013 - cold bottle. Brassy orange brown colour, no head. Not much going on in the smell. Taste is quite unusual - metallic in a good way, some caramel and slightly smokey/earthy, a bit watery. (3.5)
Sep 2013 Bottle from Wholefoods Kensington. Drunk rating I’m afraid - so just giving the gist. Tastes like a lemony lager, metallic. Not good. (2.2). Average becomes 2.9
