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.

hohops (284) - Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle. Appearance is golden, a big white head which hangs around for the duration. Aroma- big citrus, lemon, grapefruit, hoppy notes, also caramel hints, and a malty breadiness is detectable. Taste- bitter hops, zesty, citrus fruits, fairly full in the mouth and a bit creamy, with a long finish. Very nice.

Davros (1939) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2014
Pours amber with a large lasting mousse-like head. Nose shows floral and citrussy hops with some apple and peach blossom too. Light sweet malt underneath. Less fruity flavours but with some grapefruit and spicy hops. A little sweet clean malt followed by a pretty assertive bitterness. Carbonation is too high.

IluvatarMilan (270) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2014
Keg @ Craft Beer Co Covent Garden - pours a clear orange body. Pleasant flowery and fruity note with some citrus and grains. Taste is very dry fruity, very noticeable oats. In fact, if malt flavours were to be separately assessed this beer would score very high in that regard. Palate is a tad less pleasant, quite harsh and unsophisticated, unlike the taste. Still an ale which is quite original and refreshing.

ciaranc (874) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 4, 2014
Draught at craft beer co. Cloudy orange amber, thin off white head. Oaty, grainy nose. Flavour is robust malt, dry grapefruit and nutty oats. Big body for the abv, spicy notes in the finish.
