Tap. Floral hops with citric nites. Amber ale with thin white top. Tastes soapy and fruity with muted biscuit undertones. The flavours grow fruitier and so does the carbonation. This may well appeal to a younger market so ker-Ching to all involved.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
pint draught @ Greenwich Union, London. This is similar thirst quncher as the brewery’s lager but in a deeper way. Colour is amber, no head. More hoppy, malts come in the second place here. Still, this is not an APA. but an English pale ale. Great with pub food.

From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. This was decent hoppy pale ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330mL bottle, poured into a balloon snifter. The aroma is a dank pine with orange and grapefruit notes that turn towards caramel with a light floral touch, and a leathery note. It’s a brilliant, clear bronze hue with a thin, white soap head that has only a light retention and no lace. The taste is a moderate, balanced bittersweet. The thin oily texture is supported by a fizzy carbonation. The medium light body contains notes of caramel and leather with secondary notes of herbs and citrus. It finishes crisp with citrus and pine and has an aftertaste of floral pine and leather that’s mild and leaves and astringent and clean aftertaste.
