500ml bottle Batch 255. Bottle gently foamed after opening revealing fizzy carbonation. Spicy, aromatic hop aroma and taste. Immense long-lasting head. Bitter finish. Overall: powerful hop flavour, perhaps over-bittered.

Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Clear golden with a creamy head and a smooth texture. Has a hoppy character, but a little understated with its taste.

Pudding (229) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2015
500ml, bottle-conditioned. Poured gold with slight haze. Thick, lasting white head. Citrus on the nose. Spicy, citrus taste. Fair, but not too much bitterness. Overall not as assertively hopped as many beers from this brewery. A gentle, refreshing drink.

500ml Bottle - Golden with a foamy white head. Fruity aroma with notes of citrus and berries. Lemon, grapefruit and a hint of blackcurrant feature in the taste. Quite refreshing and easy to drink.

JohnCook101 (535) - - JAN 21, 2014
A decent pale ale with a good hop profile. Some malt, citrus flavours, a little sweetness and a god amount of bitterness, but not overwhelming. Looks nice, aroma is mild and represents the flavours pretty well. Medium bodied with a slightly slick mouthfeel. Nice.

Cask at CBC, London on 11th October 2013. Gold with white, scantly lacing foam. Grassy herby aroma. Hoppy in-mouth with grassiness continuing, and a long-lasting, solidly bitter end. Zingy mouthfeel and a noticeable amount of body.
