3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home, ABM, 07/03/14.
Clear pale blonde, moderate white covering that retains.
Nose is mandarin, citric pithdom, grassy, light mango, earthy hop notes.
Taste comprises tangerine, light hops, straw, hint of grapefruit, citrus rind, a touch of soap which lets this down a couple of notches.
Medium bodied, fine caronation, grassy hop bitterness in a drying close.
Solid for style, but style - this could be an APA or a Session IPA, juicy hoppy citric pith goodness, lager ? Premium or otherwise I say nay!
Decent lowish ABV thirsy quencher whatever the style.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from shop NYE 2013. This is a very decent cloudy west coast IPA, which is a requisite standard for most london microbrews. Straight down the line hops and dryness on the palate mixed with some citrus flavour. Don’t believe the pear drop guff on the label, but this has a decently long palate, and is very enjoyable when super-chilled - as if kegged. Cloudy appearance with lively froth. I’d say it isn’t a belgian ale like the description says.

Bottle at honest burgers. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Nose is moderate caramel, light biscuit and hop forward citric fruits with a hint if zest. Taste is balanced caramel malt and light fruit hop citrus notes. Light bitterness on the finish helps it flow. Quite crisp. A decent lawn mower beer

Aroma: yeast ?, citrus and some hops. Appearance: cloudy bright gold, small bubbly white head. Taste: medium bitterness. Palate: quite fizzy, some malts, neutralizing the bitterness partially. Overall: refreshing drink, maybe a tad to bitter for me. Bottle from Odd Bins Pimlico, London.

The taste is crisp, bitter, dough, hay, floral, spice and grapefruit peel, with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. All comes together rather well. Rather drinkable and quite a nice match for my Ramen!
