33cl bottle Cotteridge Wines, B30. Poured crystal clear despite being bottle-conditioned and enduring a 30 minute cycle ride. Not as assertively hopped as Kernel brewery IPA’s. Thick mouthfeel. I think most people would like this beer.

Served into a half pint glass on tap at Tap East (Jan ’12).
Hazy blond to amber in colour.
Flowery hoppy aroma and taste, citrus flavours, maybe a hint of toffee/candy in the finish.
Mouthfeel was pleasant, very refreshing with a bitter sweet aftertaste.
a good beer which I will definately re-visit given the chance!

Keg @ The Rake, London. Pours deep amber in color with a medium creamy white head. The nose is fresh grapefruit and fruit salad, some strawberry and fresh pine. The taste is much the same, more fresh strawberry fruits with an assertive pine needle hop kick. Lightly astringent, a sipper indeed. Coniferous. Decent bouncy malt presence, balanced. Active carbonation. Overall, very nice. Flavorful.
