Bottle in Mort Subite in Altrincham. Golden with a frothy white head. Spicy lemon aroma. The taste has lots of lemon citrus with spice and a nice bitter finish. Really good.

Trying to get excited about this like I have been for some of their IPAs but it’s a fairly standard pale ale - not particularly exceptional. Some grass and pine notes from the hops. A little caramel sweetness in the malt. Quite light and mildly carbonated. A little bit of saison going on.

330ml bottle from M&S. Big soft white head, a little lacing. Slightly hazy golden amber body. Nose is orange, lime, biscuity malt. Flavour is burnt orange, honey, caramel, good citrus bitterness on the finish lingers nicely. Light carbonation, good full mouthfeel, soft on the palate, a little bit of chew. Really really good.

330ml .Nice Norway shit !we are right with you bros , fuck the oppressive autocratic EU but lets still trade in unity,like Noway has for years . Nose of citrus hops , orange peth , stone fruit , must , grapefruit zest . A murky yellow colour that morphs into urine yellow after a swill of the tulip glass , decent white foamy head too . It drinks rich , fruity and kinda punchy - the 6 % booze is subtle . I could do with a more dry finish , just a ying to the sweet’ish yang . A good pizza kinda beer .

Leighton (18745) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2016
Bottle shared at Craft Beer Co Islington - London. Many thanks to Dave for this classic! Pours clear gold with a white froth ceiling. The nose holds light rindy grapefruit, lemon peel. Lightly sweet with fain minerals, more rindy bitterness, dry bread. Light bodied with average carbonation. Pretty clean to finish, with just a bit of resin, pithy and rindy citrus. Good one.

Pours clear copper with a thin white head. Is that roses in the aroma? Very malty, a strong bitterness.
