A remarkably light, crisp and hoppy alewith a hint of sauvignon. Maris Otter Pale Malt and Carapils provide a light malty base for intensely aromatic floral, citrus and gooseberry flavours of Chinook, Cascade and Nelson Sauvin hops.

Bottle from Beer52. Pours Golden, medium carbonation, half a finger head. Aroma of farmyard...put me off a bit....after some searching, found some lemon and pine. Taste is much better, loads of pine, loads of it, then some biscuity malt a touch of caramel too, then lemon and grapefruit, gooseberry too. Nice!

I poured this next to a bland pale lager for my wife and the two beers looked remarkably similar, except that the head lasted longer on the lager. Not a good start. Gets better though - there’s a bit of oily body to it, and a fruity hoppy aroma. Flavour has grass, pine and lemon, and a really nice bitter finish. Not bad for an easy drinking 3.5% beer.

edsspoon (788) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2014
Bottle - pale golden with a bright white bubbly head. Aroma of some grassy hop, pale malt, a little hay, bread, toasted sesame seeds and a hint of cumin. Taste of grassy hop, gay and straw. Light lemon peel, hints of pale malt and brown bread. Light bitterness to finish. Very light body, high carbonation. I very much enjoyed it.

500ml bottle shared with Ashton McCobb. Yorkshire part two tasting. Pours clear gold, thin short-lived white head. Light lemon and pine aromas. Taste is more citrus, resinous hops, nice malt backbone. Good body for the strength. Nice.

Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - golden and clear. Decent head. Nose - lemon and flower stocks. Taste - more lemon with a dry earthy note in the background. Palate - light bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - yep great beer considering the strength.

Floral, fresh smell. Tastes of gooseberries & citrus. Very light, almost like a lager.

StueyD (1502) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2014
A golden yellow coloured beer with a weak white head. A strong hop aroma. Loaded with orangey and floral aromas, plus a slight grassiness. Dry mouthfeel. A bitter hoppy taste, citrus fruit flavours, led by a floral orange flavour are followed by grassy and piney flavours. There is a background maltiness that comes through towards the end. The floral hoppy bitterness lasts into a lingering finish.soy sauce,
