Bottle from Corks of Cotham. Deep gold in colour with a short-lived white head and moderate carbonation. tropical fruit aroma of grapefruit and pineapple with a suggestion of pine. Flavour had more fruit, solid, biscuity malts, leading to a dryish, slightly peppery finish. Enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
September 10, 2014 - at Craft Covent Garden - handpull. Lovely clear and refractive gold with a smallish off-white creamy head (4-). Aroma is very floral, light grain; simple, nice. Taste follows, but an extremely well-done version of a hoppy golden, so well balanced, enough alcohol to match - really tasted "fresh". Average body, chewy, mild carbonation, a medium grainy/floral finish - a solid, solid drinker - I had another !
