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.

500ml bottle. Poured with immense white head, pale yellow beer. Mouthfeel thin, medium bitterness. Taste: lemon. Overall: top quality beer, avoids the usual pitfalls of many similar beers such as over-hopping with ící hops.
