[3166-20100727] Cask. Lemon zest fragrance has light floral yeast notes. Slightly hazy, light yellow orange body with a quick foamy white head. Bitter lemon zest flavour. Medium body has a lingering bitter quality. Would be more interesting with carbonation.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2011 Feb 2011 at the brewery. Golden. Big, brash, fruity spicy hop aroma. Leafy, delicious and inviting. One of the most drinkable refreshing pints in England.
Aug 2010: @ George Inn, Croscombe. Light amber colour. Powerfully fruity (berry) hop aroma. Very refreshing. Fruity, almost tea-like in the finish. Properly hopped! 8-3-8-4-16 = 3.9

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Horniman at Hays in London. It poured a clear golden liquid with a minimal white head. It had a hint of hops and some flowers. Fairly mild. Smooth mouthfeel with a light body. A very mild ale, but at least it had a hint of hops in both smell and taste. I wouldn’t have mind a bit more flavour. But it was easy to drink and did the trick without impressing. One of the better real ales I tried during my trip.

I wasn’t convinced about this beer. I felt it was too hoppy for what I wanted at that time at least. It’s more in the vein of American IPAs, without the carbonation. I prefer the more gentle British ales. Nice to try nonetheless.
