Takeaway can bought at Wetherspoons. Cloudy amber with a very thin head. Has plenty of fruit in its nose and flavour. A tad sour in the palate but remains very tasty.

Can in the Llandudno Spoon’s on 11th June 2014: no new cask beers for me, so defaulted to the first of the three cans Sixpoint have being pushed by Wetherspoons. Slight haze to my pale amber pour, the head tried to hang around, but failed after less than a minute. The nose was both yeast and hop laden with malts just about getting a look in. Taste wise it’s the hops that lead the way with a yeastiness within the flavourings. Pleasant and not as bitter as I expected.

A few 335ml cans at the Tilley Stone Gateshead. Served in a cool little tulip glass. Big piney citrus aroma. Hazy amber with a clinging off white head. Big juicy grapefruit flavour, woody conifer notes, hops to the fore. Slightly oily texture, long bitter finish. Rather delicious.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml can from Julio’s.
Appearance : Clear pale amber with medium foamy white head.
Aroma : Citrusy and piny hops. Slightly resinous with light oily notes. Fairly floral as well with some malt. Light caramel notes.
Taste : Great malty backbone with resinous and floral hops. Citusy with passion fruit notes. Finish fairly resinous with piny and floral notes. Fairly bitter with persistent resinous notes and lightly caramelized malt.
Palate : Lively but soft carbonation. Pillowy palate, quite quaffable.
Overall : Really nice beer. Great balance between malt and hops. Nice balance between resinous/piny profile and floral/citrusy notes. Nicely drinkable, just enough resinous on palate with nice malt. Caramel is also pretty well balanced, just enough to give depth to the malt and a bit more body while still staying in the background. Good stuff.

Pours bright orange, faintly hazy with whitish head. Smell is fruity orange, clean tropical and citrus. Taste is slightly thin with dry citrusy orange rind hops. Not syrupy, and it feels refreshing with a full body and crisp mouthfeel. I like it’s dryness quite a bit. Very nice ipa

Pours orange with a smooth sticky head. Aroma of resinous hops, grass, caramely malts, citrus and pine. Taste is resinous hoppy, grassy and malty with some citrus, pine and caramel. Finish is crisp and bitter with some resinous notes. Okay IPA, could be slightly better from a fresh can.
