Hazy amber, very small slightly off-white head. Aroma is light, citric. Citrus and pine flavours. Very simple. Really powerful bitter finish that overwhelms everything else. Uncomplicated, perhaps unsophisticated but pleasant.

harrisoni (15041) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle from Strand Wines Walmer and drunk on a train. Hazy pale gold lasting white head. Really fruity aroma. Yes that lovely hedgerow fruit. Another effortless spot on outstandingly brilliant single hop Mallinson beer. Captures the essence of the hop and tastes wonderful. This is how to do a single hop golden ale. Wow. The black berry and black currant flavour is great. Excellent bitterness. Just top notch.

jamesie1857 (1660) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2015
Cask at Three Tuns, Dronfield - Clear yellow body, thin white foam. Nose is an odd berry like aroma, little bit of citrus. Taste is cereal and a fruit berry background. Nothing too unpleasant but I’m not a fan.

Cloudy gold beer, little white head. Some residual debris at the bottom of the glass. Palate is dry and a little soft. Minerally carbonation. Not getting much Bramling Cross earthyness here. What I do have is more of this bloody Mallinsons soap! Bitter minerally finish with a touch of citrus. Bitter linger.
