Itís not startlingly good or bad, itís a bit thin and without body, But it is nicely balanced on the hops. Not a beer that youíd be happy to session with as it would bore you.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2013 Great balanced beer. Smells like a beer, looks like a beer, tastes like a beer. You canít go wrong with this one.

Like they say, neither a hop monster nor a malt monster, just a nicely balanced, refreshing beer, soft carbonation giving a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Itís quite anonymous until the wicked twang of citrus kicks in in the after-taste. A mild-mannered reporter of a beer, you could take this home to meet your mother, girls.

Nicely balanced pale ale that is true to the form. Not sure where my beer disappeared to, but my glass is empty. Good introduction for people who want a good beer with flavour that is not overly hopped.

Mmmm, nice. Rich chestnut colour, frothy clean head. Nutty hops float into the noise, moist and grassy. Smooth, easy drinking, rich subtly sweet ale carrying a lot of rich flavoursome hops. This is a nice pale ale; not extravagant, not silly, just does what it says on the tin - hops, malt and smoothness. Nice indeed.

Draft. An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and flowery hops, leading to a bitter finish.

Golden yellow colour with some beads of carbonation in the bottom of the glass (Ha! I said bottom).
Loads of grapefruit, greengage and, oddly enough, Lucozade aromas. Citrus and resin all over. A very easy palate to appreciate. There isnít a huge astringent burst, rather mellow golden tropical fruit and then tangy tangerine. The finish is more toward this motif without overbearing hops. Nicely balanced in other words. I rather like this.

From memory, no notes. Pour is a brilliant cloudy orange, looks great. Tangy hops and caramel on the nose. Nice marmalade, citrus orange peel notes in the middle. Hops not over done , but provide a nice backbone to the maltiness. session able

Orange/red in colour with big fluffy white head. Big marmalade hop flavour that lingers in the mouth for ages. Great for hop heads as not too over the top. No hoppy oil residue.
