2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2013 Petty tasty classic pale ale really, nothing particularly jumps out, but not in a bad way. Crisp, bitter, looks like strongbow, moderately fruity, quite clear. Hint of sawdust in the aroma. This is in no way a bitter!

Bottle from Queens Head. Bright yellow pour with a medium white head. Nose is quite tropical and citric. Lychee and grapefruit very prominent. Lychee in the taste, a touch grassy. Lengthy grapefruit finish. Solid. Great for a bitter

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Oddbins West Hampstead. A hazy dark orange brown in colour with huge big dollops of sediment. Hoppy ale with lots of fruity new world hop flavours. A well executed if slightly generic version of a modern pale ale, which sounds harsher than it is meant to be.

330ml bottle. Filmy dark golden colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Piney, minimally herbal hoppy aroma, hints of orange, slightly sweaty caramel malty undertones. Taste is dry, herbal, piney and minimally soapy hoppy, subtle malt sweetness. Well hopped, takes it close to an APA.

Keg @ The Fox 2014/4/22 - This one is getting better. Nice foamy head. Good head retention. Cloudy. Nice aroma and bitterness. A little astringent and unbalanced for my liking.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from an Odd Bins near the Earlís Court station. Pours hazy amber with a slight white head. Main aroma is light stone fruit. Almost ripe peach. Near full in body. Flavor is slight citrus, but thereís more fruit and moderate caramel. It finishes quite bitter. Almost enough hop to start a burn. Itís certainly worthy.
