Very drinkable pale ale with mellow citrusy hops and, agreed, a hint of marmalade tartiness.

Cask @ Oakford Social Club. Mid gold, tight head. Marmalade aroma, some more in the first taste. Bitter, slightly tart (but in a good way), orangey citrus lingering bitterness. Not as hoppy as I was hoping, but very drinkable.

Nice easy beer with a soft hoppy flavor that mellows as it warms slightly. Pretty safe and standard IPA.

Cask - good, pale ale, though quite sweet. The bitterness grows slowly to a good level by the end. Decent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask. Golden clear ale with a thick light tan head. Nose is hoppy and spicy with lemon, grapefruit and a hint of honey in the hop. Hoppy in the mouth with an instant bitter bang of lemon, grapefruit, grapes and tangerine - becomes malty and sweet as it moves over the tongue and then the finish is unexpectedly spicy with some woodiness and tea-like qualities. Decent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
1/2 at the Tilley Stone Gateshead. Slightly hazy golden beer with a thin white head. Cereal and honey aroma. Cereal and citrus flavours, with the merest hint of blue fruits . Soft carbonation and a juicy palate. Doesn’t sound much out of the ordinary, but somehow contrives to be more than the sum of its parts. A lovely quencher.

Well balanced, well hopped nose with cereal notes. Flavour follows, with fresh hops threaded with honeyed malts. A nice golden ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Merchants Inn, Rugby, 03/04/13.
Very lightly hazed golden with a good sized off white head that retains well.
Nose is pale malt, light citrus, touch of hops, grass.
Taste follows the nose pretty much to a tee.
Medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth and pleasant on the palate.
Ok drinkable beer, looks and feels better than the flavours in the middle!
