50cl bottle. Light golden with almost non existing head. Nose : bread and grains, barnyard aromas. Sip : Water, light carbonation. Crispy and dry. Grains and hay malt flavours. The beer misses good hopping to invite for the next sip.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pressie. Golden, clear ale with thin head. Fruity hops aroma with citrus but also some chocolate (?) which was unexpected. Sweet start; tangy malty citrus finish. Light, very drinkable.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml brown glass bottle from Dobbies. A citric hoppy pale malt beer. Malt is dryish, thin, biscuit like and quite acceptable. Hops are citric juicy with a barbed edge - moderately jammy. A decent package - thirst quenching and reasonably attractive. Not entirely to my taste, but it’s OK.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Citrus aroma. Some light malts come through. The hop flavour does feel a bit stale but leaves a nice bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ GBBF ’12. Light golden color with a small, creamy white head. The nose is sugar cookie, some light lemon and soft straw. The taste is light apple butter toast, some lemon rind and light orchard fruits. Hints of white grape. Quite balanced, and not the hop bomb that the name suggests. Light body, soft carbonation. Overall, OK. Not particularly memorable!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, thanks to Guy. Golden pour with a small white head. Some citrus notes in the nose and flavour ,alongside some fairly unremarkable hoppage. Lacked any real balls and pretty forgettable stuff overall.
