5th October 2013
Very hazy gold beer with a small white head. Palate starts smooth and has a minerally crisp trailing edge. Medium malt, light grain. Reasonable hops - orange peel and ripe orange. Grapefruit pith. Smooth finish with a peel bitter linger. Fairly well balanced and decent.

Cask conditioned at Minehead Beer Fest ’13. Cloudy amber with white head. Well flavoured beer, good hoppy grapefruit notes, lots of zest and oily hops. Lingering on the palate. Definitely my beer of the day.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Euston Tap - London. Pours clear, deep gold with a slight, filmy white head. The aroma holds mostly jammy citrus fruits, some lightly toasted pale malts and pine needles. Light to medium sweet flavor with further jammy, semi-ripe citrus fruit, tangerine, orange, light spicy pine. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation. Lightly sticky and resinous on the finish, plenty more jammy citrus character. The beer is a bit flat, unfortunately. I’m sure it would be a lot better in better condition.

On keg at the Three Tuns, Bristol 10/07/2013. Unfined. Hazy gold with a slick of a white head and moderate carbonation. Tropical fruit, a slightly yeasty edge, with some solid malts and a dryish, herbal finish. Good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
660 ml bottle.
Pours a cloudy golden colour with a white lacy head. Aroma of strong citrusy hops, biscuit, pine and fresh juicy orange. Flavour of fresh juicy fruitiness, biscuity malts, very high bitterness, floral notes, orange, some yeastiness and some earthiness. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Finishes bitter, juicy and quite yeasty. Towards the end the bitterness grows and it gets more juicy. A tad too musty, but still refreshing and enjoyable. Has some similarities with Kernel’s APA’s, especially with the yeastiness.

Keg at Howl at the Moon. It pours golden amber with a thick white head. The nose is orange sherbet, tangerine, orange tango, dough, pine and light hay. The taste is crisp, bitter, resin, pithy orange, lemon, grapefruit, grass and minerals with a crisp, dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Eminently drinkable. Clean, crisp and refreshing. Great stuff.
