Cask-conditioned at the Three Tuns, Bristol 12/10/2012. Deep amber with a decent white head. Aroma of sweetish, citrus fruit with big, almost herbal hopping. Flavour had solid, biscuity malts, grapefruit and range and a lingering, dry finish. Very good.

Fruity hop character with grapefruit and a touch of pine. Dry in the mouth with a little sweetness from the malt. Nicely balanced pale ale, if a little unremarkable.

omhper (18949) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2012
Draught at Bishop’s Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm. Cloudy pale amber, minimal head. Citric tangerine aroma. Fairly sweet with clean mouthfeel and medium body. Rich salty citric hops, very clean crystal malt character. Really bitter finish. American style, both in hops and malt. I prefer when British brewers do the former, but am not too keen about the latter.

Cask, handpump at The Shoulder of Mutton, Wantage, Oxfordshire, Wednesday 12th September 2012 Pours golden with a small clean white head. Fruity, tasty beer with an impressive hoppy bite. The hops rip through leaving a slight dryness, they are really punchy, citrussy and tangy, this really is very good. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8
