Tasted from 500ml light green bottle. Pours light orange. White head was thin but left a lot of lacing in the glass. Skunky/grassy hop aroma prevails with some malt aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, low carbonation. More grassy hop bitterness in the finish along with a slight iron or metallic taste. Finish is long and lingereing.

Bottle to stein
Cider, cherry, grains, bread, and vinegar. Yellowish amber with an almost non-existent white head. Taste is lemon, straw, hay, barley, cigarette ash, and grass. This is one of the beers that began to pull me away from macro beers and into the world of micro and craft beer. It remains a favorite of mine, but sadly, it doesn’t live up to my memory of it.

Cask at the Jerusalem Tavern, London on 2nd July 2014. Copper with thin off-white ring-and-film leaving scant lacing. Floral hop scents and biscuit malt aromas. Delicate floral hoppiness, cookies and fine grass in-mouth where the hops come to the fore. Light smooth velvety mouthfeel and fair body. Enjoyable ale.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice hazy golden yellow color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing sliding into the beer.
The smell had the English pale malts up front with that typical sweet soapiness and still letting in a some grainy cereal notes.
The taste was mainly sweet through the cereal notes and malts but a biscuity breadiness ended up surrounding the flavors.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the style and for me as it left a certain smoothness that I normally get when I drink English pale ales.
Overall, not a bad English pale ale. I suppose it would make a great meal with fish n’ chips.

500ml bottle from Biernavigatie. Clear golden with a small white head. Medium body with light to moderate carbonation. Bitter with smokey tones. Grass, smoke, malts and hops. A good combination of smoke and bitterness, overall it’s quite refreshing despite the smoke.

Pours a clear golden with a wispy white head, aroma includes notes of fruits, straw, light roasted malts, and caramel. Tasting notes include flowery fruits, ripe fruits, nice malt backbone, and a slight bitter finish. This is an excellent bitter, not spectacular but it is above mediocre!
