Pours copper red with well retained creamy head. Big tropical fruit aroma with caramel malt. Tate is big fruity hop wollop with nice caramel toffee backbone. Very very tasty. Can’t help but compare this to 5 am saint. Is it better? Depends which day you get the 5 am saint.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 25.05.2013, tap @ HaandFestival:
Small creamy shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly neutral, wet leafs, hops, dried fruits, grass. Taste is slightly watery and harsh, leafs, grass, hops, pine needles, wood. Longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Fair enough.

Red color. Medium-sized off-white to khaki head. Little bit of lacing after it quickly falls. Huge hoppy, citrusy aroma. Little bit of malt. Slight watered down malt flavor. A little hop flavor and bitterness. Decent.

Draughts at The White Horse (London). Very well balanced indeed, was popular around the table. Good enough to pull me away from the good cask selection for a couple of pints.
