2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Shared from a clear bottle into a nonic half-pint glass. It poured a crystal-clear golden colour with thin head which immediately dissipated, no foam or lace remained. Neutral grainbill, some faintly fruity ale yeast esters but most of that was stripped away too through filtration, leaving only strong Galaxy hop aromas and flavours: strawberry, melon, catty mint. A little musky and harsh, perhaps it was light-struck in this clear bottle, which seems like an especially bad choice for such a hops-forward brew. Very light body, very strong carbonation, thin mouthfeel, bitter, vegetal aftertaste, dry finish. "Refreshing English Ale" is a true statement, but there just wasn’t much else to it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml Bottle. This pours a amber body topped with a medium laced, medium lasting white head. Its aroma is slightly citrus (lime) hops and some spice/floral notes. It tastes slightly orangey and slightly medicinal (but not in a bad way at all) with a slightly dry bitter finish. A lovely all round beer this one. I will certainly be having this again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Well I like it. Surprisingly good considering it’s very much a macro. Lots of zesty tropical notes on the nose and in the tasting - fresh mango, orange zest, lemonade. Finishes well and is very moreish. An excellent session beer from a macro; well done Morland.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from a mixed 4 pack at Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours brassy gold with a frothy beige head. Aroma is mostly fruit, touch of citrus, mild caramel. Med body I’d say. It’s very clean. Flavor is nice light caramel with quite a bit of hop that isn’t very bitter. Seems light stone fruit, maybe some odder fruits, and finishes reasonably dry and fairly hoppy (for a UK Blond). It’s relationship to OSH shows, and it’s a delightful, moderately flavored ale.
