2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A - Pours a golden orange. Slightly murky with chunks of sediment floating around. Towards the end, the chunks form one blob at the bottom. 1/2 inch head the melts quick. little to no lacing.
S - Citrus hops, funky lemon, a very tangy fruit/wheat flavor. Sweet bread. Sour/funky smell is unexpected but welcomed.
T - Citrus hops up front, sour yeast, watered down tangy wheat, mild hops on the back of the tongue.
A pretty good beer. I love the sour notes in the smell and flavor. Citrus hops dominate. Goes down smooth. Not sure if this fits the style, as this is my first English PA but a solid beer nonetheless.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Full pint poured from cask at The Blackfriar pub, shared with Finn. Low, lacing-head. Next to clear dark golden body. Peaches and earthy malts to the nose. Flavoured with juicy malts. Refreshing dry bitter ending. A fine interpretation of a British bitter (London, 06.11.2012).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask @ the Haymarket. Pours pale, hazy and with a nice head. The nose is grassy and citrussy with just a little bit of pale malt backbone to balance. Much the same on the taste. The palate is light in body, zingy in texture and with a clean refreshing finish. Overall, yes I like this!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2012-10-08. Lightly hazy golden orange body, near headless beige head. Mild aroma of grassy sort of lemony hops. 6+ Flavour is similar, mild grassy lemony hops, modest English malt undercurrents. 6+ Average plus bodied palate. 3+ Quaffable, but not particularly interesting, likely a bit more assertive closer to home.
