Keg @ Crown and Anchor. Murky, hazy brown in colour with good carbonation. Not much aroma, malt, not that much hops and a bit of funk. Malt and fruit with some vegetable funkiness and then the bitterness. Its ok actually, certainly better than the above description would suggest.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Oddbins. Colour is clear toasty looking amber with a medium white bubbly foam head. Nose is zesty citrous hops, grapefruit, touch of orange blossom, mango tropical fruit and some biscuity and bready malt. There’s also a bit of rhubarb bitter in there too. Taste is quite grain husky like a golden ale but with a kick of citrous hops, with gooseberry and grapefruit bitter on the tongue. Bit of the Nelson earthiness on the finish too.

Tap House, Norwich. Clear copper with a tight white head. Aroma is dominated by grapefruit, tropical fruits with some caramel malt hidden in there. Flavour is grainy, dry, with bitter citrus. Light body, but a thick texture. Good chilled, but got a bit chewy as it warmed up.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2013 Tasted 23/4/2013 draught at "Deveraux", Temple, London. Poured a clear golden amber with a thin white bubble line for a head. Laced very well. Aroma of floral hops dominated straight up. Taste of slight sweetness followed by great tasting hops bitterness that dominates. Light to medium body. Smooth with a long tasty bitter finish. Very good. Very nice change to typical ales.

500ml bottle (Snow@ChrisO)
Nice fruity hop aroma - peachy, mandarin, a bit zesty even. Duller palate. Soft simple, but not so exciting. A bit of a let-down after the aroma.
