4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2015 Rerate, 2015, 500 ml bottle, from Prima Beer, Hobro. ABV is 4.2%. I had to sample to bottled version to see if the glamour from the cask version was gone. It is not. Still a lovely and refreshing beer, with tingling hops throughout. Original rating 2002: (Cask conditioned at The Grid, Southfields, London). One of the best beers Iíve ever tasted! Top rating at The Great British Beer Festival. A real ale bitter with a complex aroma and flavour, still itís surprisingly light and refreshing.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2006 Cask at Oakham Brewery Tap, Peterborough. Straight from the holding tanks in a 4 pint pitcher, this was the best tasting JHB I have ever had (and Iíve had a fair bit). Light gold in colour with a really good tangerine/grapefruit nose with a flowery hoppiness too. And because it is a session beer you can just keep drinking it. Finish is citric and hoppy and slightly acidic but extremely well made and very well balanced

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2005 A light hoppy, refreshing beer, with fabulous flavour. A lip-smacking taste, makes you thirst for more. This is a fantastic session beer and is exceptionally good for its gravity. Well worth trying.

Hazy palest golden. White head, rapidly disappearing.
Intense aromas of tropical fruit, citrus fruit, honey, herbs, even artichoke.
Fresh, full-bodied. Long bitter creamy finish.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2012 This is a delicious beer, very hoppy, brewed, I think, with Challenger and Mount Hood hops. The English and American hops make an interesting combination. It does look alarmingly pale, but as one drinks it, and as it warms up one feels the hop presence increase, but it is a very balanced beer (if rather bitter), with a wonderful flavour, quite far from what one would expected of an English bottled bitter.

great bitter. loaded with hops. fruity pine cone nose.
hops ominate the taste giving this a fruit and citrus feel.
enough malt to provide some balance but still the hoppiest british brew I have had
very smooth body.
