3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
September 4, 2014 - on handpull at Craft Beer Co (Clerkenwell). Clear brassy gold with a decent and lasting off-white foamy head. "C" hop bitterness and grassy sidenotes on the nose, some acidic UK bitterness and a fair bit of pineapple fruitiness (I think "marmelade in a glass" is overstating it though). Taste is more grassy than resin/citrus, nice acidity tho ("it’s almost as if the brewer was resisting the American hop onslaught with traditional bittering while MAKING a US-style beer"). Average-to-light body, astringent, good and airy for cask, medium-length bitter finish, with emerging Goldings or some other UK-style hoppiness beginning to win out. Decent.
