UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 50cl bottle. An attractive golden amber with a flat white head; the aroma has some grain, honey and peachy tropical fruit; the taste the same with a slight sourness; followed by a grassy bitterness, and a sticky finish. Rather good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From Fosse. Veiled gold with a slim fine collar. Aroma of drains, hedges, TCP, hint of candy banana. Shrubby, herbal hints with dank and banana yeast; coriander (leaf) and parsley-like impressions; heavy mineral presence. Hard to believe it contains Nelson Sauvin. Too yeasty and phosphoric for my liking. A step backwards from Adnams.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: Grapefruit, honeydew melon and grain.
Appearance: Clear golden body with a massive off-white head. Very highly carbonated, it looks fizzier than a soft drink. Great lacing.
Taste: Light flavours of lemon, orange and unripe melon. Some grain, wheat and - strangely for an American Pale Ale - coriander.
Palate: Medium body with an oily texture. Lively carbonation.
Overall: An unusual beer with quite a lot going on, however the flavours feel a bit unbalanced and blend together into something pretty indistinct. I think an unfiltered version of this might be better.
