375ml bottle in a shaker. Pours amber with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of lightly citrusy and floral hops, some dough, and a good amount of caramel and pale malts. Flavor has a good amount of sweetness and bitterness to balance each other. Average texture. A good pale ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours orange amber with an off-white head. Aroma of mandarin, passion fruit, some other tropical fruits, and a little malt. A quick taste of gooseberry and kiwi up front but these pretty much disappeared as it warmed a little. Also tastes of citrus, white grape, grass, and crackery malt. Residual flavor is a bit like an herbal cough drop and an orange hard candy at the same time. Pretty full body for such low alcohol. Unique aroma and flavor... at least compared to most North American pales. Worth trying.

Bottled, 330ml at The Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Hazy gold with white head. Quite a sharp, spritzy beer, heavily carbonated, some wet cardboard. Eventually a fruity hop emerges giving a chinese gooseberry type flavour, becoming fairly intense.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear copper amber with a 2" white head that providess a good looking, contrasty, separation from the brew; light clouds of lace. Aroma is fresh grain with some pungency from light bitters. Taste is immediately malt and solid hop bittering both at once, continuing through the palate until sweetness pokes through at the swallow, but that succumbs to a hop finish. Refreshing, cleansing, especially noteworthy for those who like their hops, Recommended.
