Cask at the Grain & Hop Store, Cambridge. Deep gold with a medium sized head. Buttery wheats smell. Sweet honeyed taste, goes down easily. Surprisingly short finish. Hard to get excited about, but itís pleasant. I enjoyed drinking it, although I wouldnít have another.

Idiosynkrasie (4923) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 27, 2015
500ml bottle. Clear, bright golden colour with average, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Citrusy hoppy aroma, biscuity malty basis, notes of lemon, lemon zest, a touch of lime, lemon biscuit. Taste is citrusy hoppy, cautious pale malty background, lemon notes, some hop bitterness, minimally soapy finish. Very nice.

Haka is an apt name for this creation from Slaterís, people you have been warned, a pale golden ale with a large lively white head bounces a sweet candied citrus aroma straight into your nostrils and this is backed up by a real punch of flavour. Its like a hop eruption strong lemon refreshes the palate and the subtle flavours come through at the finish, mango, pineapple and melon add to the sweetness which is brought down to earth with a bitter kick leaving an overall well rounded ale.

Cask - Golden Amber in colour. Fruity; tropical and citrus fruits. Hoppy; grassy hops. Malty; toasty malts. Moderately bitter fruity hoppy throughout. OK but a somewhat metallic taste. Drinkable.
