330mL can BBE: 29/05/16. Well-chilled (approx. 6 degrees). Pours a cloudy amber body with small, off-white, crown. Dense with small floaters. Medium-low intensity (perhaps due to over-chilling) hop-forward aroma with grapefruit and dirtier, more resinous notes. A medium-high bitterness blasts through a light sweetness on the tongue, with a hint of hoppy sourness in the background. Light-bodied with an abrasive texture, high-medium carbonation and an abrupt finish. A nicely-balanced, sessionable ale that doesn’t sacrifice character for its ease of drinking.
