Cask, Hawkshead BF. Amazingly creamy, pale hoppy ale. Gooseberry in the aroma, peaches in the taste, bags and bags of flavour, with a massive finish. Beats the Cumbrian 5 Hop for me and that takes some doing!

Got a bitterness that’s not overpowering. Bready notes, very little head that sticks. It’s a good brew, but a little disappointing.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2013 Aroma: Mango and kiwi notes. Sweet caramel.
Appearance: Completely clear light golden body with a thin, pure white head. Light carbonation.
Taste: Very hoppy with a tropical fruit flavour. Pine resin in there too. Dry, bitter finish.
Palate: Medium body with a sticky mouthfeel. Soft carbonation.
Overall: One for hop heads. Lovely sticky resin and fruit flavours. Arguably Hawkshead’s finest beer.

Cask at Earl of Essex, Islington. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is fruity with funky earthy veg. Medium body mild carbonation. It's fusty, grassy, a bit of melon, grapefruit, ash. Nice bitter finish. Slightly unusual, but tasty enough. Nice.

Bright golden. Fluffed dissipating head. Sweet full cone nose, honest and earthy. Hop water looseness with gripping bitterness. Oily mouthfeel and crisp tacked towards finish. Simple hop sweetness. Not enough Nelson.

330ml bottle from Beermoth. Aroma is pine pot pourri crossed with a fresh flowery summer meadow.. lots of citrus & pine with a resinous aftertaste.. not too full on mind, but a very fresh juicy beer nonetheless.

Bottle @home. Pours gold/amber and clear, light but steady carbo, looks like a lager, very little head. On the nose orange, perfume, its almost like a wine. apricot fruits come through, big citrus in general on the nose, also a little grapefruit. Big grapefruit bitterness on the palate, a little one note on the tongue, bitter all the way, could do with something to break it up.
