2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours a gold colour with a medium white head. The aroma is very floral and malty, the taste is very bitter with citrus, which leads to a dry bitter finish.

Something’s not quite right here - huge cat piss aroma and flavour but not really much else. The flavour overwhelms and leaves me feeling weird.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Sainsburys. Very clear yellow with a bubbly white head. Aroma is citrussy, peppery and slightly herbal. Little bit of cream soda about the smell too. Taste is a bit plain but quite nice bitterness. Bitterness lingers a little while in the mouth. Feels maybe a bit gassy, but doesn’t seem to be very highly carbonated. Quite like it, but wouldn’t necessarily have it again.

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale amber, decent long head with lacing, thin bubbles.
Grassy, citrus aroma.
Hoppy hit from the start, very grassy, consistent to aftertaste.
Good carbonation, thin-medium body.
Needs more balance and variety, hops don’t allow flavour through.

Bottle from Sainsbury’s Purley Way. It pours straw yellow, with a thin bubbly white head. The nose is pepper, grapefruit, vanilla and sweet candy .The taste is full of cracked black pepper, light aniseed, grapefruit pith, grass, metal and resin, with a big warming bitter finish. Light to medium body and moderate carbonation. Balance is not great. It’s all a bit weird.

500ml bottle, cellar cool. Lovely floral/grassy aroma. Pours pale gold with a white head, and delivers a crisp clean mouthful of beautifully balanced fruity sweetness and hop bitterness.: zesty bitter finish to a very refreshing pint. I loved it, and will be back for more.
