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.

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.

Cask at the Birmingham Beer Festival 2013. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is strong malt citrus caramel a hint of barnyard with some spice and liqourice too. The flavour is medium bitter with a medium bodied palate and low carbonation. This beer really knocked me over. Amazing. So many great flavours and I would easily drink this all night long.

660ml bottle. Hazy, yellowish, pale golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Citrusy hoppy aroma, hints of lemon and grapefruit. Taste is initially minimally strawy and moderately bitter hoppy, later juicy citrusy fruity, notes of lemon, lemon zest, biscuity malt basis, orange zest; lasting, crisp bitter hoppy finish. Excellent development of taste, superbly refreshing, highly drinkable.

Tap at Friends of Ham, Leeds. Hazy yellow. Thin, but tight, white head. Aroma is like toast and marmalade. (Or am I just hungry?). Dry, piny and oily. Nice beer.

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.
