Bottle from Utobeer drunk at home. Hazy orange amber colour with lasting white head. Good grapefruit aroma. OK pale ale in the mouth. Yes, very drinkable, nice grapefruit and it’s very decent. Definitely floral and a little rose like. Likeable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle at The Sussex Arms, Twickenham. Murky orange/amber pour with thin white head and light lacing. Lots of grapefruit, orange and pine on the nose - sweet dough, light caramel and a touch of yeast too. Taste is lovely: pithy grapefruit, blood orange and pine resin backed up by a fairly chunky doughy, caramelly malt backbone. Medium (ever so slightly oily) mouthfeel. Lingering resiny bitterness which is fairly assertive but by no means overbearing. Very well balanced pale ale - wouldn't have imagined it to be 6.5% - good job indeed.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2013 Keg in The Lyric. Colour is rusty orange, with a white foam head. Nose is intensely hoppy, with a hell of a lot of citrous, grapefruit bitterness and pine. Taste is so hoppy that I’m wondering if they’ve kegged up the right beer! Bitter bitter citrous acidity for me, grapefruit, orange, lemon, lots of pine, lots of soap suds, caramel malt back bone. Bit too much for me!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Clear amber colour ith average, firm, frothy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Nice fruity hoppy aroma has notes of tangerine, orange, peach, caramel malty basis. Taste is moderately sweet caramel malty, fruity and slightly bitter hoppy overtones. Sadly about a small scale trickle too sweet, minimally soapy hop finish. Nevertheless nice overall.
