Our latest ’Trans-Atlantic Pale Ale, and our first brew at our new home. Low Colour Maris Otter and wheat malts, Summit at first work, Magnum at boil, then a big dose of Amarillo and Galaxy after flame-out. More galaxy in the fermenter. Huge melon, peach and citrus flavour

Lightly hazy gold beer, residual white head. Palate is semi dry and crisp. Very light malts, dry. Hops are a dry pithy orange with a little yellow grapefruit and peel in the background. A subtle but definite peppermint rides throughout giving the beer an unusual slant. Light dry finish. Peel bitter linger. Not bad!

McNeillR (1897) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Pale hazy yellow, sliver of a white head. Soft pear, light sweetness and gritty edgey bitterness. Not thin as such, but easy going carbonation. Light juicy hops, very clean finish.

Bottle, Let’s Go Digita Tasting

kufdam (159) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2013
This is decent beer but just too sweet to be a killer. Plenty of hop though. Almost.

Fin (8700) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2013
Had this at Oxford Beer Festival, Oxford, Thursday 17th October 2013 Pours a straw coloured with some haze and a white head. Punch fruity nose with citrus being the most dominant feature. In the mouth the fruitiness flods through again, There is a softer more exotic fruit in there not sure what but also a streaky sweet juicy citrus flavour underpinning. Tasty, decent beer and a good start in the new premises. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

Garrold (3018) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2013
Cask at The Rutland Arms, Sheffield. Hazy straw colour. Tight, white head. Juicy, hoppy, tasty. Of that there is no doubt. However, a tale regarding a work colleagues love life proved overwhelmingly interesting to take more detailed note. Good beer. Good tittle tattle.
