1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at the black lion Leighton Buzzard. Larger coloured pale ale. Not the anticipated tropal fruit aromas I expected from the Newzeland hops. In fact a very distinct lack of any discernible scent on the nose. A sharp bite initially greats your taste buds & lingers long after the beer has acquainted your stomach. I’m struggling to find the postives with this beer, thou not unpleasant I won’t be having a second..

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Cask at Craft Clerkenwell, London, 11 Apr 2014) Golden colour with foamy, white head. Fruity, malty nose with citrus, grass and grainy malt. Fruity, malty taste with notes of citrus, biscuits, grass and a generous bitterness with a touch of resin in the finish. Rather light body, quite dry. Fresh and highly drinkable. Nice one.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask, Rigby’s Liverpool. Supped on lunchbreak from Jury service. Pallid gold looks with a thin white head. Muted nose that offered little. Some citrus and restrained hop in the flavour , but was hoping for more oomph from the new zealanders. Drinkable but largely underwhelming.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Dean Swift SE1. Light golden colour with a decent white head. Easy drinking summery ale, hint of grapefruit in the finish, pleasant bitter smack. Hops arguably could do more. A decent example of style I guess, but wasn’t dashing for more.

Cask conditioned handpump Whitelocks Leeds 15/04/13. A blonde beer with a bright white head and lace. Lightly hoppy but a creamy sickly sweetness which I don’t like. The hops don’t shine like they should. Everyone seemed to be ordering this as they walked in. I wonder how many people had a second.

Spritzig herb hopfiger Antrunk. Süffig, deutlich bitterer werdend, was in den Gesamteindruck passt. Mild hopfiger Ausklang. Gut. 12/10/9/10//10

20th February 2013
Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival in KEGS! Almost clear pale gold beer. Little white head. Light dry palate. Floral note and a light citrus. Light tangy peel finish, orange and grapefruit. Semi dry finish. Nice hops here but really needs more of them.
