4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Minicask. Beautiful pale bitter, with a big fruity aroma. The America and Czech hop flavours are definitely in there, with citrus and pepperiness battling for dominance. Lovely chalky bite and very full-flavoured for a session strength beer. Was a favourite years ago and seems to be right back on form. Well carbonated and a fine tangy finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a small white head and a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild citrus and some earthy notes as well. Taste is light malty sweetness and a moderate hop bitterness. Quite full flavored considering its meager 3.8%ABV. A light and refreshing ale, with the benefit of flavors found only in stronger ales.
