From the Grain brewery. Fairly hoppy, fairly citrusy. Not as good as 3.1.6 but still a very decent beer

From a 500ml bottle into pint glass. Lovely appearance with a clear straw golden body, loose fluffy white head and excellent lace rings corresponding to each mouthful. Nose has cereal malts and light citrus hops and this is transferred to the palate which is smooth and refreshing providing easy sessionabililty. Really enjoyed this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Garrold (4243) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle from Branthill Farm, Norfolk. Gold. Barely a head. Nice biscuit and lemon zest aroma. Bit downhill after that. Buttery and clarty. Hard work.

Bottle. Lovely golden amber colour with small white head. Hop dominated on the nose with sweet apricot and resinous aromas. Initial sweet malt on the tongue quickly giving way to big peach and apricot hop flavours and a sufficiently bitter finish. Very nice

Otterdance (164) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2013
Bottle. Light hazy golden, small white head. Aroma is apple, hops and some malt. Lovely fresh flavour from the hops and citrus - the sharpness is tempered by the biscuity grain. Light to medium with a soft feel.

Poured very lively with a billowing white head. Aromas of apple and yeast quite a refreshing taste and light palate, making it a good drink for such a sunny evening as tonight. Does suffer a bit from that UK BCA trait of being almost too yeasty, but a well made beer otherwise

From 2007 (BA): My second beer from this fairly new craft brewery, this 500ml brown bottle was best before March 2008, it was opened and drank in December 2007. Posh art work on the front label, basic information on the rear label. This is a bottle conditioned Pale Ale and I allowed the sediment to leave the bottle and enter my pint sleeve glass. I poured the beer aggressively to produce a head, sadly no head appeared. However on a more possitive note, the floating lumps of yeast settled to the bottom of my glass quickly. The aroma was very sweet, a toffee apple smell. Difficult to pin down the flavours, the beer seemed to go flat very swiftly and its condition appeared to be poor. Mixed fruits (apples and pears) and a good tangy bitterness. My score of 3.5 is maybe higher than it should be, but I enjoyed the taste even though the appearance began to waiver. The mouthfeel and drinkability were both OK . I will have to try another because I am sure this beer was not at its best on this occassion.

Cloudy coloured full bodied hoppy English beer with lovely lemony flavours and a nice balance of malt and bitterness on the finish. Something about this is similar to the American pale ales - I think itís the bite of the hops and the citrous flavours but as far as i know itís English hops, which is weird. Really like this one.
