500ml bottle from Real Ale, Twickenham. I had this years ago on cask at the Market Porter and remembered liking it, so I decided to buy this when I saw it. Golden with thin white head. Lovely hop aroma of US fragrant hops. Slightly sweet in mouth and could do with a touch more roundness from the malt. Then beautiful US hop finish, all citrus and compelling. A tad too gassy

As fresh as cut grass. This has a good sparkle and more hops bitterness than expected. Floral, oily hops finish this good beer.

Bright Beer at The Coachmans Rest, Enstone, Oxon. Yellow golden beer with no head. Itchen valley beers seem to employ a malty sweetness that could be cloying but in this case works very well. Full bodies, well hopped with aromatic variety. A very pleasant beer drunk in a very pleasant place, many thanks Paul.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2009 Cask, on 4th September 2009, at the Racehorse, Carshalton, Surrey, UK. Clear, copper-coloured with a small white head of foam. Bitter with roundedness from malts tempering the citric hop. Saline mouthfeel and the drinker left wanting more.
