The beer has a prominent hop character; a blend of Fuggles, Goldings and Cascade has been used in the recipe to bring the delicate hop flavours & aroma to the fore. The use of Cascade gives a pleasing citrus aroma. Finest pale Maris Otter malt has been blended with Wheat malt and Rye Crystal to provide a full flavoured beer. The lavish use of late hop dominates the malt flavour and results in a satisfying pint.

Bottle thanks to mesandsim. Aroma is really hoppy, citrus and grassy, american style pale ale character alround. Taste is similar, very appealing indeed, the hop character is really good and exactly what i like in a beer. Very unexpectidly good.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2010 Bottle, shared by fonefan. A clear, golden beer with a decent off-white head. Butterscotch, pale malt, some cookies and a citrusy hoppyness in the aroma. The flavor is much the same, finishing with citrus and some bitterness. Medium lenght. Medium body. Far from a winner, but quite drinkable and with some refreshing qualities. Rating: 5-3-5-3-11-2.7. 080822

Bottle. A clear, golden beer topped by a small, white head. Citrusy and flowery nose with biscuity malts and something reminiscent of honey. Biscuity pale malts in the mouth, medium body fullness and with citrusy hops that don’t add much bittterness. Some peppery notes too. A quite tasteful and quenching beer, obviously in better form than the last time I had it. Still, nothing special. 091120

Bottle@Proeflokaal. Fruity and light grassy aroma. Clear yellow color, white head good lace. Light sweet, bitter, light fruity, hints of citrus, light grassy. Also some woodiness or something else that I can’t really figure out. Nice, refreshing ale.

Bottle from Morrisons. Deep gold in colour with a frothy white head. Aroma of jammy fruit with some grassy hops. Flavour began with a touch of caramel before a hoppy finish. Good.

Copper gold. Hop aroma; later some sweet, buttery caramel. Taste is mainly hoppy though, and somehow the result isn’t totally pleasing.
