COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottle conditioned and keg unpasteurised; Regular
A 4.5% pale ale with spicy, grassy aromas and a taste of grapefruit and apricot. Undercurrent is part pale, part oats and part caramel barley. Her swirls of bold, bready and nutty malt whirl into a concoction of spicy, citrus, floral hops. Mystery lurks in those cascade and palisade hops. Her silky, creamy body will pull you under.

Leighton (13620) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2015
Cask at CBC Clerkenwell - London. Pours clear gold with a fine, creamy white head. Some ripe orange in the nose, a bit of toasty hay. Light-medium sweet flavor with toasty bread, ripe berries, dry orange. Light bodied with fine carbonation; nicely conditioned. Somewhat dry to finish, with touches of leaves, citrus rind, dry pale bread. Very tasty.

Pours golden yellow with a white head which lingers. Aroma is sweet malts and slight pine. Taste is bitter, pine and a hint of fruitiness.

Ulysse (286) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 22, 2015
Gently hoppy upon opening. Short lived white head. Still looking for the oatmeal the shop attendant told me about... Managed to get to a right amount of bitterness. Regular IPA like.

ElDesmadre (2153) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle. Lime, elderberry, white grapes and grass - the aroma certainly delivers. Alas, the taste does not, being very lean bodied and failing to provide anything resembling an aftertaste. It’s got that light creamy oatmeal touch but otherwise it is really dry and all that is left in the finish is its lingering bitterness. Kinda disappointing.

Dfonorow (1721) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2015
On tap at Pivni. Pour is light yellow with a medium white head. Aroma and flavor of pine resin, dry pale malt, and light grass. Finish has a lot of resin without much fruit/spice. Sorta boring.

tandembrauer (515) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 17, 2015
On tap at BlackLab, Barcelona. Pours amber with dense head, cloudy. Aroma of grapefruit, tropical fruits, fur needles, caramel. Thin bodied; bitter finish.

Piana: Drobnoziarnista, biała, niska i szybko opada nie zostawiając po sobie śladu. Barwa: Przejrzysta, bursztynowa. Aromat: Czuć lekko kwaskowy w stylu cytryny, słodowy i żywiczny aromat chmielu. W tle przewijają się też inne owoce w stylu brzoskwini. Smak: Na początku słodko gorzki. Po przełknięciu zostaje już tylko mocna goryczka - niestety zalegająca. Kojarzy mi się ona z antybiotykiem. Po nim również zostaje taka gorycz w przełyku. Po kilku łykach stwierdziłem że jest zbyt płaskie. Czegoś w tym piwie brakuje.

jjsint (1260) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Keg at Our Black Heart, Camden Town. Orangey gold, bright and cloudy. Peach/passionfruit aroma with a subtle resinous tinge. Starts bittersweet but turns ever more bitter toward the finish. The aftertaste is a bit too acrid, and the body is a bit too watery for my taste. An enjoyable pale ale nonetheless.
