An elegant, straw coloured bitter. The hint of sweetness is complemented by subtle hop flavours, leading to a dry finish. Brewed using Maris Otter pale Ale malt, Hobson's yeast and finished with Worcestershire Goldings and Herefordshire Progress hops.

minutemat (2908) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2013
500ml bottle at home. Fruity, hoppy nose with disappointingly tame, grassy flavours and vague glimpses of something resembling hops. Very poor.

PAK9 (5) - Oxford, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2013 does not count
Bottled. Weak aroma of flowers. First sip is plasticy and unpleasant. Taste is flowery but with chemical overtones that don’t balance with it and make it dishwatery. Very lively palate, effervesces too easily. Overstayed its welcome a little at the end.

Sigmund (5972) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 16, 2013
500 ml bottle conditioned, from Vaaland, Bryne. ABV is 4.5%. Plenty of sediment in the bottle. Very pale yellow colour, hazy. Moderate white head. Sweetish aroma with notes of grassy and herbal hops. The flavour is crisp and medium dry, with distinct herbal, peppery and citrussy hops throughout. Decent bitterness, refreshing.

Bottle. Appearance: Vibrant straw yellow with a slight haze going through it, small pure white head. Aroma: Sweet, peppery hops, grassy, fresh, almost farmyard aroma. Smells good. Flavour: Nice fresh grassy hops, peppery, farmhouse again, citrus, quite vibrant in the mouth feel, lovely long hoppy finish. Quite lovely.
