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.

viktorvee (510) - Greater London, - DEC 20, 2013
Maybe I had this too cold but it was a bit tasteless and thin, with just a very bitter after-tase. A bit more came through as it warmed up but still a bit thin, especially in the after-taste. Aroma of nutty caramel wit a little, almost rye like spiciness. Some juicyness comes through in the taste but not loads, still thin. Disappointing overall from a super brewery.

MrBishop (35) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2016
Cask at The Allied Arms Reading. Pours cloudy. Quite bitter with loads of flavour but nothing too overpowering. Another top job from Siren.

ForlornHope (370) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours a clear amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of grass, nettle and funky hop. Taste is sweet to start, then fiercely bitter. Juicy malt base with some caramel, orange marmalade and a refreshing sharpness. Good mouthfeel and well carbonated. A nice drinkable strength, this is a beer I definitely will return to.

Muggus69 (2000) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAY 14, 2016
330mL bottle from Booze Bud. BB 27/07/16 Golden-orange body, creamy white head persists. Good nose - biscuity caramel malts, cooked citrus, pine, woody hop spice. Medium-full bodied, very smooth & slick, clings to the palate somewhat. Well-balanced body - touch of sweetness from light toffee & biscuit malt, well-measured bitterness from grapefruity, stonefruity, piney sort of American hops. Lovely stuff!
