On Draught at Popeye. Nice citrus and dark fruit aroma, looks deep golden with an amber backbone. An easy thirst quencher with a great hoppy finish. It’s understated but has everything in balance.

from a 500ml bottle. nice straw to amber color, good head. Nice orangey, citrusy aroma. Hops and malt blend well together to make a nicely drinkable beer that would stand up to most American versions. Hops are a bit one dimensional though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2009 Slightly hazy orange with an off-white head. Grapefruit hops, grass, some floral, too. Body is a tad thin. Flavor is grassy, grapefruit, and a little caramel malt. Pretty good, but it’s definitly missing something.
Tried this again at Aldgate and it was much better than I remember. Much hoppier and fuller flavor. Bumped my score up a few points.

[on tap at Popeye]
Plenty of US hops in the nose; mostly grapefruit, plus a touch of caramel. Murky gold with lace but no top. Strong citrusy hops flavour and not much else. The hops may have been a little rancid. Very low bitterness. Medium body with low carbonation and a soda watery finish.
