3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
This straightforward Bitter pairs honeyed malts to citrusy, leafy hops in an oily mouthfeel.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the clear pale amber.
-The hoppy bitterness also shares spiciness and lingers nicely.
-Fruitiness also comes from fermentation, not only the hop profile.
-Drinkability is very high.
-The flavour profile is well balanced.
On cask at The Old Green Tree, Bath.

500ml bottle in an English pint. Pours golden with a big, lacy, white head. Aroma of light fruits and spices, floral hops, and some pale malts. Flavor about the same, with a nice blend of everything, but a little flat/watery. A decent bitter.

Bottle conditioned, so opened with care after a bit of a rough ride into the woods! Very well worth pondering this beer. Winner of many beer awards. Very hoppy, but no bitter edge, a bit more floral, and a slight hint of fruit, a little zesty. Earthy ending.

A clear yellow golden colored beer, with a large foamy white head. The aroma of malt, lot of fruits, citrus and orange. There are hop bitters. The taste is malty, fruity, citrus with orange and in the back sharp bitters. The aftertaste is mostly bitter.
