3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask @ CPK. Deep amber color with a small white head. The nose is orange and bright peach fruits, light grass and wet hay. The taste is much the same, summery fruits and light citrus with a grassy finish. The body’s medium, the carbonation soft. Overall, a tasty pale ale from Summer Wine. Not a standout, though.

330ml bottle from Ales by Mail
BBE 30 Jun 2013 - Pours dark orange with a bubbly white head. Aroma of piney hops, hints of grass and caramely malts. Taste is grassy, hoppy and bitter with piney notes and caramely malts. Finish is dry and bitter with some long lasting grassy hoppiness and hints of pine. Okay, a bit one-dimensional but still quite tasty APA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. Hazy dark orangey golden colour with small to average, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Hoppy aroma has notes of tangerine, kumquat, grapefruit and pine, a slightly herbal overtone, some buiscuit in the caramely malt basis. Taste is herbal hoppy with a strange spicy touch that overstrains my ability of description, kind of soapy coriander or so. Overall OK.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Amber-orange with a thick creamy head. Despite a higher than average strength there’s little evidence of it in its flavours and has a high citric hoppy, tropical fruit aroma with plenty of tropical fruits in its taste. Good body.
