Cask@moonunderwater, wolverhampton. Pale amber beer with thin head faint citrus aroma. Taste is of bitter hops and a little citrus. There is a slight tangy flavour in the finish. A decent beer.

ianwelby (637) - SCOTLAND - APR 24, 2015
Clear golden beer with a thin bubbly head. Aroma and taste are both lemony citrus. A touch of hop in the taste and aftertaste. Possibly could have gone being a bit cooler.

dxbrad (17) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2015
Sweet, malty aroma with a zesty refreshing nose and the lingering dry bitterness of a full bodied pale ale. Good session ale - no complaints

mike_77 (3700) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2015
Clear golden colour. Light malty sweetness in the aroma and flavour. Quite plain but inoffensive apart from the slightly metallic edge to the finish.

Neither excited nor upset: you may leave this drink with hazy memories of what the experience actually involved. Bland is a strong word, for this beer has certain powerful attributes. Its bitterness, pleasing appearance and long aftertaste make it a drink which leaves you happy when youíre left in its company. Whilst the palate never seeks to offend, it also refuses to state its intentions. For those who want a character ale, look elsewhere. For those locking themselves in for a long session, this may form part of the journey. You may look for something more, but donít discount it entirely.

SlackerMads (1941) - DENMARK - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle. Clear yellow/golden with a medium sized diminishing white head. Chalk and light perfumy hops in the nose. Not the most hoppy APA Iíve had, it is mostly grain with some grassy notes, light flowers, candy, dry green plants and a touch of wet dog. Medium body, soft carbonation, medium sweet and bitter.

stravale (2391) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle from Desmondís Next Door, Kimmage [130714]
Amber, crystal clear, frothy white head that dissipates
Aroma of soft pine, grapefruit, soft floral, sweet soft light malts
Taste of soft sweet pale malts, soft pine, dab of grapefruit, touch floral, dab of sweet biscuit malt
Palate - soft carb, medium body, bit oily, quite sweet, fairly bitter hop. Finish as main flavour.
Overall - Comes across as a moderately hoppy golden ale rather than an APA. Not bad at all.
