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.

500ml brown bottle. Pours medium honey color with no head. Scent is extremely mild yeast, maybe Heather? Taste is medium dense yeast with a mild Hop bite. Mouth feel is not particularly pleasant - slightly skunky. Good.

Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2016
Bottle at home in London - picked up at Royal Mile Whiskies - London. Pours clear copper-gold with a massive, billowing off-white head; this beer is seriously over-carbonated. The hops seem a little faded in the nose - some hints of drying tangerine, pine needles, crispy pale malts. Light sweet flavour with crackery sugars, mellow bitter pine, some leaves, very faint caramel, some citrus fruits. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Sweet finish with more crackery pale malts, some peach, melon, nectarine, subtle piney bitterness. Just OK.

Clear light copper, small off-white head that disappears to nothing pretty quickly. Aroma is hoppy, citric and slightly metallic. Flavours of citrus, light caramel, a little pine. Moderately sweet, strong hoppy bitter finish. Really nice.
