3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: flowers, grassy hops. Appearance: hazy, pale gold, small white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters intensify, getting very dry in the long finish. Overall: feels like a weak APA rather than a bitter, yet very pleasant. Pint at Mother Kelly’s, Bethnal Green.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden colour, light head with some lacing
A little citrus on the nose, but plenty of grapefruit taste
Some people say too bitter, but I think it matches the grapefruit
Pleased to see a 660ml bottle, and such a tasty beer at only 4%
I’ll be getting more in as an afternoon or session ale
