330ml bottle from Les Crepes de Sophie, Shrewsbury. Fairly bitter with big helping of grapefruit, crisp pine and a little juicy citrus. Big bold hops and a restrained ABV make for a drinkable, if rather dry, Pale.

33cl bottle, served in Shaker. Pours hazy orange with small/medium lating white froth. The aroma is orange peel, citrus and hints of caramel and pine. Smells so good. Similar taste, one just gets some yeasty notes added to the rest. Dry palate, spicy touch. Medium body, good carbonation. Good job, very balanced.

2013-10-19. Lightly hazy bright orange body with a small frothy white head. 3+ Aroma is moderately citrusy, notes of muddled citrus peel and pale malt.

Sammy (8414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
A nice pale ale, on cask at Cask Days 2013. Very balanced, a tad of barnyard that seemed an off-note to me, otherwise most drinkable. Orange bodied, with some hop aroma.
