3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A strong well hopped golden ale, with a clear colour and medium white head. A crisp flavoured beer with all the hop that you could manage this is a slightly bitter beer which refreshes the palate and I will agree with the name it does make you think there are so many subtle flavours it make you think more about the beer that the drinking. There is a zesty aroma and the hoppiness is clear but overall it is a pleasant drink but not one that I could drink all night.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a hazy light amber with a thin white head. The aroma is light malt and creamy caramel. The flavour is medium bitter with a malt hop bitter slightly watery palate. Medium bodied with a average carbonation. I really liked this. Lots of flavour and ideal for a session.
