3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Wine And Beer Direct, Halifax. Straw-yellow with a thick frothy head. Lots of hops, a fair amount of citrus which is at its greatest in its nose as its taste is less stated than you expect given it’s potency. There’s some acidity, some grapefruit, and a citrus bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, a well rounded complex multi hop APA, I really liked the refreshing fruity flavours coming through both on the aroma and palate. Also had Phantom Extra, which really benefited from the extra ABV, up to 6.7%, unfortunately a very limited brew and even fewer bottles. Keep up the good work Steel City.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at Craft 100. It pours clear golden with a small, bubbly white head. The nose is fresh, floral, tangerine, apricots and candied peel. The taste is fresh, orange peel, soap, lemon peel, peppery spice, grapefruit and onions. Medium body, fine carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel. Good level of bitterness. The onion-like aspect is a bit off-putting after a while...
