Gary (1305) - Brentford, London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2013
Bottled : So Fullers have jumped on the bandwaggon and brewed a US style pale- ; Golden/pale with subtle white head. grapefruit .lemon zest . biscuty malts aroma; Drinks not bad. American hops and tangy dryness. The dry hopping is evident . Not a bad stab but its subdued compared to lots of this syle .

A deliciously different beer that draws from the best of the anglo-american brewing tradition to produce something memorably tasty.

Bottle at home. Amber colour, fine rim, little carbonation. Nice nose of fresh hay. Nice floral hop in the taste with fresh mushroom before a nice bitter herbal finish. Lovely session beer!

MarkoNm (257) - SLOVENIA - DEC 20, 2013
Pours a clear golden with a generous white foamy head. There was obvious aroma of citrusy hops. The taste is very bitter and quite strong, with a lot of bitterness in the aftertaste. Itís a nice and enjoyable beer, but perhaps a bit strong and with a bit too bitter aftertaste. But still, quite enjoyable.

ciaranc (711) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 14, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pale yellow gold, not much head, doesnít look great. Not much nose, some dusty hops and some grain, a sweet banana like fruity note. Flavour is buttery, more grain, not great. Thin body, medium carbonation, papery notes in the finish. Poor for a Fullers beer.

Appearance: Clear golden color with a fine white head. Good lacing.
Aroma: Caramel malty, fresh citirc hoppy and some fruity notes.
Palate: Medium body. Moderate sweet and a fresh bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Citric/grapefruit hoppy, rich malty and fruity.
Overall impression: Tasty and nice beer. Just a little bit to much malt dominance for my cup of apa tea.
Personal stats: Bottle from netorder at Systembolaget in Sweden.
