Craft Clerkenwell. Light haze on this pale gold beer. Little white head. Fresh light palate with fine carbonation. Pale malt has a little lager like character. Touch of rye spice. Great hops - light juicy floral tangerine with lesser touches of orange and lemon. Semi dry finish. Fresh and very drinkable, a delight!

Cask @ The State Bar. Golden amber colour, reasonable head. Spicy resin aroma. Resin grain flavour. Quite smooth. Not a bad example of this style of beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Faint aroma of bread, apricot and earth.
Appearance: Clear golden body with a medium off-white head that slowly fades. No visible carbonation. Superb lacing.
Taste: Grain, cereal and earthy notes. Apricot, pale malt with a light peppery spice. Low bitterness.
Palate: Medium to full body with a sticky mouthfeel. Flat carbonation.
Overall: This is well balanced, but flavour wise it’s not particularly distinctive or exciting. I really want Fyne Ales to brew a new beer that has the ’wow’ factor of Hurricane Jack or Jarl.
