Pours an orange/amber colour with a pleasant aroma. Nicely hopped and I notice that it is claimed to be an English/American hybrid - a good combination and very ’easy-drinking’. This is a good combination of malt and hops. I would definitely recommend this brew

Keg. Poured a hazy golden amber with a small but lasting, lacing white head. Aromas of pine, grapefruit, nectarine and apricot following through onto the palate coupled with a biscuity malt character. Medium body, medium carbonation and a protracting, good intensity bitterness in the finish. Big, bitter but mostly balanced.

Draught at Embassy Hotel, Brisbane. Poured a clear golden amber with a one-finger white foamy head that retained OK and laced poorly. Carbonation low and fine. Taste of strong pine and citrus/grapefruit. Taste with hints of sweet caramel but mostly of a nice grapefruit/citrus bitterness. Light body, mouthfeel a bit thin. Smooth, crisp, lightish with a nice tangy grapefruit/citrus bitterness on the finish.

Bottle. Clear amber with a white head. Aroma is assertively piney, with grapefruit, nectarine, toast. A bit over the top with the pine, really. Sweet carmale and biscuit, load of pine, rather less grapefruit. A bit weedy at the fairly bitter end.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
At just on cool and into a snifter. Hazy, dull orange amber body with very fine carbonation. The head goes up and quickly fades back to a thin and lasting pad of white. Resinous, pine-forest of hops on the nose; very raw, woody and almost phenolic spicy with a tinge of burnt nut husks. Again its a furious pine-forest of raw, woody hops, bitter, weedy and herbal, and all encompassing. Bitter finish is a little harsh and offsets any chance of balance. Malt lies dormant, nutty and gritty; the body light and the carbonation low giving it an almost creamy mouthfeel. Whilst there are so many negatives in my notes I actually didn’t mind this. It profiles its hops well, but their aggression could be restrained a little and this would be a winner. One to try again! (33cL, Bottld on 02/11/12, 6.0% ABV, Cellarbrations Carlisle)
