Cervesa amb un bon aroma i gust, però es nota massa aigualida en boca. Cerveza con un buen aroma y sabor, pero se nota demasiado aguada en boca.

Una APA suavecita y que se deja beber. Puede que merezca más nota, pero entre tanta cerveza ya a esas horas no le pude pillar el gusto

Draft at HDM Huddersfield. Pale straw colour with a decent white head. Floral, soapy aroma. Bitter citrus dominates the flavour, a little malt, some herbal notes and a little pine. Not hugely sophisticated or complex but pretty damn good anyway.

Light but honest golden with a decent dissipating bubbly head. Neat and peachy/pineapple nose. Rumbling hop, chewy citrus and bitter orange thread. Soft enough carbonation, gripping but oily mouthfeel finishes fairly dry. Clean and simple grassy bitter linger.

Cask @ CPK. The pour’s a light amber color with a small white head. The nose is light citrus fruit, some apricot, summery countryside grass. The taste is soft tropical fruits. Mango, pineapple etc. Slightly grassy bitterness. Fairly subdued flavors. A bit soapy. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, not a massively impressive effort. It’s a decent golden ale with some exotic hops thrown into the mix.

Half pint, hand pulled cask at Port Street Beer House. Nitro cream white head to a clear, copper coloured body. Citrus to the nose. Tropical fruits in flavour with a touch of citrus shells. Dry and smooth bitter ending. Not too thin in the mouth. Good (Manchester, 22.01.2013).

Cask gravity, Microbar BF, Manchester. Pours a cloudy orange. Lovely soft floral aroma, with a faint sulphury flavour. Bitter palate with orange notes late on. Really enjoyable.
