3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
An excellent pale from Ilkley, pours golden in colour, pungent NZ hops in the Aroma. Taste is catty, grassy NZ hops, with a perfectly pitched bitterness for a pale ale. Nelson Sauvin hops are used to great effect here, I would easily put this beer right up there with Kernel and Magic Rocks offerings.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fruits, citrus and hay in the aroma. Clear golden with a white head. Medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Light to medium body with a average carbonation. Overall a nice refreshing, hoppy Golden Ale. A bit more bitter than i am used to, but a sweet fruity flavour balances this brew very well.

Cask @ Kitty’s
Aroma has citrusy hops, some gooseberry bush and hay. Perhaps some caramel too. Flavour has herbal bitterness, some grapefruit and gooseberry bush leaves. I do not like the herbal bitterness here, but decent stuff anyway.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Clear straw coloured beer, plenty of fizz and a nice frothy white head. Looks like a pint of decent pilsner! Smell is of grass, harsh citrus, some nettles. Taste is of white grape with high levels of bitterness. Dry finish. Very refreshing and pretty moreish. I like the simplicity on offer here. Good summer beer.
