Cask at the Nags Head, Reading. A pale amber pour with a ring of white head; aroma of fresh leafy hops; rather thin with a fruity hop taste; and a peppery bitterness; then a dry, rather acrid finish.

On tap, pours a lightly hazy medium yellow with a nice off white head. The smell is very delicate floral hops, mild citrus, light toasted grain. The taste is light citrus, little mild butter off taste, ending with a touch of bitterness. Light bodied with fairly active carbonation.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at The Earl Grey Inn, Leek. A clear pale golden colour with a thin but lasting white head. Aroma is fruity of lemon, grapefruit, some orange peel, maybe elderflower and grassy, floral hops. Taste of sweet lemon, grapefruit, orange, some caramel initially then dry, dusty, grassy, floral hop flavours. Light bodied but a watery texture. A dry, light floral hop bitterness in the finish. A very easy drinking, hoppy golden ale. Not bad.

Keg tap at the Grain & Hop Store, Cambridge. Light yellow, almost straw. Light but pleasant grapefruit/lemon aroma. Nicely balanced bittersweet taste. Buttering hops more assertive in the finish. Hint of sweet spice. Well-judged amount of carbonation (I.e. Not too much but enough to add to the palate). Pretty good.

Keg at Urban Tap House, Cardiff. Pours golden with white head. Pretty bog standard gold, some dryness from the hops. Keg dispense may have killed some of the flavour, underwhelming.

Very subtle aroma. Nothing prepares you for the taste. Which isn't that pleasant. Quite a yellow, green colour.

Pint at the Mailbox, lincoln. Hazy deep golden colour with creamy white head. The aroma has the hops you’d expect with a name like this, however for me the taste doesn’t have the balance or deepth of flavour found in good well hoped beers, just a very bitter taste with a lingering aftertaste. Maybe a half was the better option.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle that I purchased from ’Jacks’ , Westholme Stores, Goring on Thames, Oxon, consumed at home Wednesday 10th September 2014 Pours gold with clean white bubbly head. Zippy in mouth, the aroma is ultra clean, like a sort of chemical version of a spring crisp freshness, but not bad by an stretch. Twangy with a furry citrussy zappiness, a little cheesy hoppiness at edges (perhaps indicating age which was BB 08.14) really good. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4
