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.

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

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2015 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.
