On tap at English Cellar Alehouse. Pours a clear golden orange color with a small white head. Light fruity hops aroma. Slight metallic flavor of malts & hops with a light sweetness and citrus hoppy base. Subdued malts. Kind of seems watered down.

Cask at JDW in Finchley Road, London on 1 July 2013.
Poured a clear orange with a nice white head. Good hop aroma with hints of caramel malts. Beer was in excellent condition. Strong initial grassy bitterness with hints of citrus, balanced by some brown sugar and cereal flavours. Palate was a little thin, but a pretty good beer to find in JDW.

Wow! What a great beer for such a small ABV. Bought this from House of 1000 Beers not knowing it was retired. I was expecting a weak flavored watery beer, but this beer has a great hop profile and a lot of flavor for a 4.5% beer. Aroma was alright. Freshly cut grass and pine. Pour was a medium light gol with no bubbles or head. Uh oh...is this beer flat? Nope. Taste was a big surprise. Strong hoppy flavor with the pine and grass big and bold. Nice and bitter with little sweetness. If this was regularly available in PA I’d buy it by the case. Nice hop flavor, strong carbonation and low ABV. A gem.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright golden color with a large foamy yellow-white head that faded and left minimal lacing. The aroma was bitter and tart with notes of pine, resin, lemon, caramel and then more pine. The flavor was bitter, dry and somewhat tart with pine, lemon and an astringent presence. The finish was medium length dry pine. Thin and watery body. Unimpressive.

This is a refreshing summer beer. The type of ale you’d want to enjoy after a hot days work. However, it was nothing special. The taste was alright, but the top was very thin, and seemed slightly flat. Almost comparable to Firestone’s Solace seasonal release, which I would HIGHLY recommend.

Bottle. Strong hops, bitterness, pine on the nose. Pours golden in color, not cloudy at all, white head that disapates quickly. Flavor isn’t as strong as the nose suggests, moderate palate. Easy drinking pale.
