3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 ml bottle. Bottled on 19.01.2016.
Pours clear pale golden color with a large white head. Very resinous heavy aroma, sweet topical fruits, some hay and citrus. Bitter malt on the flavor, citric fruits, somewhat oily hops, some pineapple and some mandarin. Slick, oily palate, lingering fruity finish. Sadly not as fresh as I would have liked, decent.

Keg at the 23 Club, Liverpool. Hazy golden/amber colour. White head. Fresh grapefruit hop aroma with piney and grassy elements as well. Taste is clean, resinous, moderately bitter. Nothing standout but seems like a classic example of the style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask handpull at Clove Hitch Liverpool. Haze amber lasting off white head. Sherbet hop. Itís a very decent pale ale. Too carbonated. But the lemon grapefruit comes through with some balancing malt. Caramel aroma. Yes itís ok but not a great pale ale. Caramel then bitterness some of which is carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
I get a bitter hoppy aroma with a slight sweetness aroma in this hazy yellow brew with a small white head forming around the glass. Sweet then immediately bitter than sweet again ending in a decent balance in this medium bodied brew. The hop flavor is very grassy.
