3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml Can from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£2.20):
Not a bad beer at all and one that started to grow on me a little as I worked my way down the can. As expected it was quite bitter and hoppy without really matching the heights of some of the more recent pale ales and IPA’s but it’s certainly not bad for a beer that was first brewed over twenty years ago. It packs in a lot of flavour to its 4.3% as well but still proved quite an easy beer to drink without being one that you’d be likely to go out of your way to pick up again.

Bottle from Booths, Ilkley.
Cloudy Yellow with White, single finger head.
On the nose, citrus...
On the tongue, initial orange, then developing to lemon, to grapefruit, a lot coming from the cascade there. You also really do get a waxy texture forming on your tongue, I presume from the soft water?
