3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On cask at Odiham and Greywell Cricket Club. Pours golden with a hoppy aroma. A very impressive beer, with a complex character and brimming with somewhat tropical flavours. Fruity on the palate with hints of orange and other citrus flavours but leading to a dry finish with a fairly moderate bitterness. Big fan!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp still golden, wee white head. Dried out lemon rind nose, slightly clinical edge. Soft peppery, lightly oily and a very crisp drinkability. Big lemon cordial middle, dilluted with a light malt before an easy bitter finish. Fresh try linger. Decent, easy going golden.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask, gravity at The Beer in Hand, Hereford, Saturday 9th November 2013. Pours gold in colour, condition very good, sparkling with just a few light bubbles dancing across the top. Wonderfully hoppy, plenty of hoppy burps. Fresh, tasty beer. Crisp zippy, lemony and grapefruit flavours, very nice beer, I concentrated less on rating and more on guzzling we had three of these.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
3rd September 2013
Old Fountain. Cask. Almost clear gold beer. Tidy off white head. Light palate, a little crispness. Light thij malt. A very nice sweetish floral vibe gives way to a mildly sherbet lemon - lime. There is a whisper of yeasty sulphur that stops me bolting this. Finishes light and dry with some parma violets emerging. Well - a surprise all right. A new Otley high for me. Very very drinkable.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle: Nose was initially some good soft fruits from the yeast, a lot of strawberry. However it faded very quickly and after a minute, was stale and musty. Appearance is very pale with no head. Taste is very bitter lemon, leading to a herbally finish with some resin. Mouthfeel is absolutely shocking, like tap water.
Overall a mess. The use of American hops in a low strength pale ale has brought none of the big flavours of an American IPA, beyond the bitterness and the resin, it just made me want the real thing. The Mouthfeel is just disgraceful.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Hazy, golden colour, pretty much no head - because of this I probably poured the bottle too enthusiastically to try and create something like a head and now my beer has so much sediment swimming in it, it actually looks like a snow globe or something. Aroma is citrus hops (lemon, orange, grapefruit), and heavy sulfur. Taste is light sweetness, and quite sour. Texture is very thin and watery, and I can actually feel all the sediment that is floating in it. This is a real disappointment. This is not drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy, lively golden beer with a thin, frothy head. Citrus and hop in the aroma. Taste is mild hop and citrus/zesty and a real bitter, flowery backtaste.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Huge grapefruit aroma - very sharp and tangy. Subtle notes of honey and vine tomatoes.
Appearance: Hazy, pale yellow body with a thin white head. Lots of large yeast particles floating around. Light carbonation. Nice lacing.
Taste: Very light and refreshing. Quite yeasty with flavours of zingy lemon and grapefruit notes and a soft herbal, bitter finish.
Palate: Thin body with a watery, slightly oily mouthfeel. Light carbonation fizz.
Overall: Very thirst quenching and easy drinking. It tastes bright and fresh and the grapefruit aroma is excellent.
