Bottle consumed with Gazza and my dad 01.09.11, cheers Gazza for bringing this along Pours lemony gold with a white bubbly head, very good clarity. Gazza say’s hemp on the nose, I wouldn’t necessarily have picked that out but I’ll take his word for it. This is superbly crisp and for a bottled golden hoppy beer it really is a stunner, sometimes I think you strike gold with bottled beers and this is one where we have I reckon, I would have loved the opportunity to have had this from cask. Lovely citrus, really fresh, bitterness everywhere and yet not in the least bit harsh, it sort of zips about the mouth in a pinball fashion. Great beer! A7 A4 T9 P4 Ov17 4.1

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask (gravity dispense) at Mason & Taylor Hip Hop festival on 22 April 2011. Very pale straw with a greenish tinge. Not much condition. Citric aroma. Very bitter on the palate with bags of lemon and grapefruit. Long, bitter aftertaste. Shame the condition wasn’t a bit more lively.

Mason & Taylor single hop fest. Light pale gold beer, no head. Light dry palate. Good fresh hops with a lingering bitter aftertaste. Full of hoppy goodness but the condition seems a bit off.

Cask gravity at Mason & Taylor Hip Hop BF. Towards bottom if the barrel. There was certainly some barrel tipping going on. Thats pretty good. Theyve put some hops in there. Wow just like hop tea on the finish. Harsh aggressive but almost completely wonderful. Wow that does have a hell of a finish. I may still be tasting this beer next week. Sat chatting to Dave you know Dave from The Wenlock. Hardcore. Jesus thats just on the right edge of becoming undrinkably hoppy but is just restrained enough. Crazy beer.

Cask at the Wenlock Arms on 23rd March 2011. Slightly hazy gold with thin ring of foam. Hoppy and rich yeasty aroma. Bitter in-mouth; liquid giving some richly hoppy and bitter notes. Textured mouthfeel and increasingly bitter aftertaste. Impressive for its strength.
