2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted this in The Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) in September 2011. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with a thin white head. Orange peel and floral hop notes in the short aroma. Thin but refreshing mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malts give a juicy citric note of grapefruit, lychees and marmalade. Dusty hop resins give a bitter bite in the short aftertaste. Finish has a delicate sweet tangerine flavour. A pleasant session bitter.
