A hop-charged beer bursting with character, a clean and crisp finish with an abundance of chinook, citra and centennial, it is packed full of flavours which are balanced beautifully by pale and caramalts.

bottle from oddbins, bbe mar (20?)15. pours amber/dark apricot. some banana but mainly passion fruit giving way to gentle grapefruits and plenty of sugary sweetness, nicely balanced by the hops, which otherwise take a back seat here. not sure what is supposed to be particularly American about this? still, another fine, balanced outing from Stewart’s.

tania_nexust (143) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Pours a hazy dark gold from the bottle. Aroma seems to have slight pilsner notes - metallic, grassy, slightly yeasty. Effervesence lifts the bitterness a bit on the tounge but it comes through again at the end. OK but not much depth flavour-wise.

Clear amber beer, good white head. Palate is light and airy and semi dry. Modest carbonation. Nice hops - peachy orange and orange pith and peel. Trace of tangerine. The malt base is airy and light and not that sweet. Airy light finish. Not bad but could do with a little more intensity.

Scopey (6812) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2014
Bottle from Tomlinsons. It pours amber with a medium white head. The nose is bitter-sweet, juicy citrus peel, biscuit, light caramel and dried fruits. The taste is bitter, grapefruit, lemon peel, resin, earth, pine, dull caramel, sherbet and pepper with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Balanced and rather quaffable. Nice work.

Bottle. Grapefruit and caramel dominate both aroma and flavour. Straight forward but well balanced and very drinkable.
