The fragrance has wonderful hops aromas, with elements of flowers, citrus and fruit. The taste is the same with a distinct but not intrusive bitterness. The body is somewhat thin. A good, refreshing and enjoyable beer!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ All Bar One, Clydesdale Plaza, Edinburgh. Pours golden and clear with a decent head. The nose has soap, lemon and herbs. The taste is tangy with green herby notes and meadowsweet. The palate is medium in structure and texture with a dry bitter finish, some of it hops, some malt. Overall, a good effort, perhaps would have preferred more hops and less malt on the finish, but decent all the same.
