4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
My Bottom Line:
On the softest cushion of straw-like cereals converse citrusy, leafy and coniferous hops, a harmonious moment which is so comfortable you don’t want it to ever end.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A mole hill of white foam produces lots of lacing around the misty gold.
-The mouthfeel on this one is a 6 out of 5. The amazing cellaring job at The Harp and The Evening Star helps too.
-The flavour dosage is just perfect for a quencher. Subtle enough to make you want more and more, intense enough to make you smile after every sip.
-Drinkability is through the roof.
-The finish is to die for. All ingredients converge, a tightly-woven tapestry of flavour that lingers on the palate until you are compelled to the next gulp. And a large gulp it’s going to be…
-From a North American’s point of view, the name of this beer may be misleading. This is not a hop bomb or a low gravity version of an American IPA. It’s just the perfect conceived quencher, from both the malt AND hop fronts.
-Is this Unetice 10 of England? It may very well be…
-The pints I had at The Edgar Wallace and The Evening Star were still excellent, but not the world beater I fell in love with at The Harp. Went back to The Harp three times over the course of 2 weeks and it was a world-beater every single time!
On cask at The Harp, The Edgar Wallace and The Evening Star.

Cask @ harp. Pours clear golden with a white head. Not much carbonation. Great hoppy aroma. A little watery. More hops on the flavour, some lemon, grapefruit and nice amount of bitterness. Tasty.

A classic. Remarkable depth of flavour for such a low gravity beer. Nice malt and hop balance start leading to an extended hop finish.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2013 Southampton Arms. Pale yellow with some white foam. Aroma of citrus, grass and flowers. Slightly winey, but the sharp tang of bitter grapefruit hops dominates. Thin. A bit one dimensional.
