UPDATED: JUN 26, 2012 Gravity/ - Cloudy gold with a bubbly thick lasting soapy white head. Butterscotch, fruity passionfruit zesty smell. Smooth rich creamy medium oily body. Tropical fruit like papaya and citrus and hoppy bitter. Very enjoyable and would have it again. Delicious.

cask ,pours light yellow with white head and good lacing Aroma is very fruity with very hoppy notes Taste is bitter sweet with citrus flavours and a long biiter dry finish just a great beer Time that rate beer separated draught cask ales ,from the same beer in a bottle as cask is usually much better,as is shown by the bottle rating for this beer

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!

In bottle, thanks Matt. Pours a lovely golden colour with a thick and rocky beige head. Great kiwi hop aroma of passion fruit and pineapple with similar resinous flavours. Well balanced alcohol with moderate carbonation. Just a little CO2 prickle and an oily mouth-feel. Very nice with lingering pine and passion fruit flavours.

Bottle from bitter virtue@ home Managed to identify green bullet, riawka and motueka by nose alone before reading the label, feeling proud! Pale blonde with lots of grape and citrus in the flavour, gentle carbonation and very easy drinking for its strength. Fantastic

spacecube (890) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2012
Big aroma of citrus & hops, pours a wonderful clear golden brown. Taste is very hoppy, with fruits and some vanilla which gives a slightly different taste to other pale ales. Very nicely balanced palate going into a nice bitterness. Another very nice ale from Hawkshead. Recommended.
