3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle, bb 10 Feb 16, from my European Local Swap sender minutemat. Thanks Mat!
Crystal clear, light golden body, with a medium, quickly dissipating, frothy, white head.
Quite light aroma of grains, citrus, grass, some pine, some sweet malts.
Taste is also quite light, but really crisp, with citrus, peach, pine, grass, some biscuit, some honey.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes bitter, grassy, piney, a bit zesty.
Nice one. Very sessionable and refreshing, with a light, but enjoyable flavour with lots of hops. Should be a perfect summer beer.

Half, cask, house beer at Magnet. Clear straw coloured body. Fair white head. Solid lacing. Mid-sweet citrus on the nose. Fruity flavours with grapefruit to the fore added by peach. Dry fruit bitter tail. Nice (Stockport 03.02.2015).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A glorious surprise, sparkling clear with frothy white head. A powerful aroma of hops, lemons and grapefruit, push through a crisp malt background. A long finish with plenty in the middle

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Clear, yellow-ish golden colour with average, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting and lacing, white head. Biscuity, pale malty aroma with hints of hay, a touch of lemon tea, lemon yoghurt. Taste is biscuity malty, lemon notes, sponge cake, lemon yoghurt, hints of lime, a very cautious grassy touch; tight alliance of biscuit sweetness and lemon tartness, super soft palate. Fluid "Zitronenrolle".

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours almost completely clear golden color, topped with average slightly off white head. Very pleasant fruity aroma, some notes of citruses also present. The taste is pleasantly malty, some caramel notes with very decent bitterness in the end.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Grapes, Liverpool. Yellow bordering on straw. Light wispy natural head. Aroma is light citrus, candyfloss/marshmallow, a hint of freshly mowed grass. Bitter taste with a sweet edge. Loads of hop flavour for its ABV. Thin body but a tasty hoppy bitter aftertaste. A notch or two above your average cask golden.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Another I failed to make notes on at the time, but I recall this bottle to pour pale yellow, with a tropical fruit aroma; taste was lemon and especially lime; very dry with some pleasant new world hops; decent, but not moreish enough to score especially highly.

Classy one with decent sweetish moments and high drinkabilty. Some vanilla mixed up with butter, hops and south american fruits. Nice one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from my Summer Santa - many thanks! The ale pours out in a deep golden colour with low head and flat body. Aroma of hops and straw with some vanilla hints. Taste of fresh, mild hops, light barley, light caramel, flowers, light malt and hay. Refreshing and very solid drinkable. Enjoyed it.
