Very, very fine stuff…

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From 500 ml bottle. Pours a mostly clear yellow-gold with a small but persisting white head and light carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, basil, orange zest, earth and white bread. Taste is very light at first, but then a big citrus - mainly grapefruit, lemon pith and bitter orange - hit of bitterness ramps up in the mid-palate. Also pick up a herbal note - mint or basil - in there somewhere and a touch of white pepper. This washes out to a sweet malty finish. Pleasant orange zest aftertaste. Really good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Pale yellow, hazy. Not a lot of head. Citra hop aroma. Taste is a nice balance of sweet fruit malt and grapefruit hops; the hops are very apparent, but it does not skew too bitter or unbalanced. Overall, an actually good English pale ale.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2014 Bottle. Pale yellow, slight haze with a small white head. Sweet hops on the nose. Nice punchy citrus flavour with a wet grass tang. Long bitter finish. Light body makes this very drinkable and makes a nice change from the thicker US single-hopped beers.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pale, clear yellow colour.
Malt, grass, floral, citrus and hopps on aroma.
Same continues in taste, plus grapefuit and little bit of sweetness, good balance.
Light to medium bodied with good carbonation.
Dry, bitter finish with grapefruit and lemon, and again hint of sweetness.
Refreshing, well balanced, hoppy and easy to drink, great beer for sunny days.
