Bottle at the RHCC, cheers to Nate, 06/09/14.
Copper golden with a moderate off white covering.
Nose is light citric peel, subtle hops, grass, bread dough, bitter orange.
Taste follows, less depth.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close with light hop bitterness.
So so APA, the hops and trops don’t shine!

Light golden with a white head. Aroma is lightly citrus. Medium body. Citrus with a bit of toasted malt in the flavor, maybe a bit of grass. Decent brew. Much better when I had it on draught than when bottled.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
345 ml bottle brought back from ’Stralia by my Fast and Aggressive chum. Clear light copper, off-white lasting foam. Aroma is mostly caramel, herbs, grass. Light grainy caramel malt taste, somewhat aqueous, faint herbal earthy hop. Average carbonation, lighter bodied, low hopped. Clean, sessional and unremarkable. Apparently it’s better straight from the bottle! Cheers Mate! MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly)

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma: citrus fruits, caramel malts. Appearance: clear amber, medium frothy white head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: light bitters coming up, watery. Overall: boring APA, neither aroma nor taste convince, but given this venue has only other bland stuff like Peroni, it becomes the beer of choice. Bottle at Corney & Barrow, Canary Wharf.
