Euston Tap. Keg. Hazy gold beer with a small white head. Palate starts smooth but ends up with a minerally crisp bite. Very light and smooth creamy malt. Great floral - orange hops. Fresh orange with touches of peel and tangerine and lemon. Good sweet floral note leads to smooth finish and a final carbonated bite. Very nice beer and very drinkable!

Bottle at home in London - picked up at Whole Foods Kensington. Pours mostly clear gold, lightly effervescent, with a creamy white head. The aroma holds melon, lemon merengue, sweet pale bready malts. Big sweet flavor with a veritable menagerie of fruits, some tropical fruits, some juicy citrus, bubblegum, lots of melon, hints of cheese, light bitter pine and citrus rind. Full bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Lightly warming finish with some resinous pine, sticky ripening citrus and tropical fruits, papaya and melon, light pine needles, white bread. Tasty but not an especially delicate beer.
