4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
It stuns me that people donít rate this beer. On cask it has a wonderful velvet mouthfeel that instantly lets you know the brewer cares. It is packed with aroma hops giving tropical fruits, peaches and gooseberry; it is perfectly bitter and has a solid pale malt backbone. One of the ten best sub 5% beers in the world.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On cask @ the Stockbridge Tap.
Appearance - golden with a slight haze and nicely proportioned head.
Nose - fresh sweat and citrus. Some hay in the background.
Taste - more sweatiness and grapefruit and pith on the finish.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a tangy texture that turns into a long dry finish.
Overall - if youíre happy with the sweat thing, which I donít mind personally, this is very refreshing.

Cloudy golden body, white head. Aroma has huge peachy soap, exotic fruits, some lychee and bit mellow maltiness. Wonderful aroma. Flavour is really harsh bitterness with grainy malt. Some tart fruits. Very hoppy, bit flat and watery. Nice session beer.
