minutemat (1502) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2014
330ml bottle from Beer Ritz. Quite a big hit of zesty lemon bitterness here, fruity with a plump juiciness, a touch of spice and an oily mouthfeel. A joy to drink.

AshtonMcCobb (2458) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 13, 2012
On tap @ the Haymarket Bar, Edinburgh. Pours golden with a nice head and just a little haze. The nose is citrus, lemon mostly with just a little of the malt coming through as a hay note. The taste has more of the same as well as a meadow flowers note. The palate is medium bodied and textured with a a clean zingy finish. Good pale ale.
