Bottled. The aroma has grain, bit grass, light citrus. Clear, golden coloured with a medium, bit rocky head. The taste is light-moderate bitter, bit grainy, citric. Easy drinking beer. Light bodied. Nice session stuff.

prawlie (1380) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2015
500 mL bottle into a pint glass. Gassy golden. Pleasant citrus/grapefruit aroma. Nice zesty, bitter ale. Actually quite decent. Leaves a little too dry an aftertaste however.

An interesting one. Really dry and plenty bitter. Leaves a slight sweetness on the lips which is lacking in the mouth. Reviewer below nailed the aftertaste: cracked black pepper. Not a fan of pepperiness in beer myself I find it a bit astringent. Wouldn’t have more than one.

swampwater (66) - Preston, Lancashire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2015
Came with a Beer 52 order. Bottled.

Aroma: Hops, malt, black pepper, hay.
Appearance: Pours a clear gold colour. Light white head, that lingers.
Taste: A very bitter hop taste. Slight caramel notes, with a peppery finish.
Palate: Quite bitter, yet smooth. Light carbonation. Light body.
Overall: Really odd, this one. A nice hoppy pale ale, that’s very bitter... then smooth... then peppery. That black pepper after taste is odd, yet strangely refreshing. Highly recommended!

500ml bottle, pours clear golden brown with a foamy white head. Aroma is grainy malt, light caramel, dry and bitter with citrus notes. Medium body, texture thin creamy, carbonation soft. Finish is long and bitter. Nice session beer

50cl bottle from beer52.co.uk. A straw colour with a ring of white head; rather subdued aroma; but a sharp fresh citrusy taste that explodes ih the mouth; and a pleasantly bittersweet finish. Good stuff.
