A Mes rate. Bottle from some random offy in Devon thanks to our Weasel.
Slighty hazy pale amber with a thin off white head. A straight forward but very drinkable bitter. Light perfume hoppage, some delicate citrus and a reasonably bitter finish. Slightly metallic but it’s not spoiling it too much. Actually the bitterness really develops through the finish. Decent length too. Not bad.

Bottle-conditioned. Orange in colour with no head and slight carbonation. Pleasant aroma of caramel, orange blossom hops hops and a touch of yeast. Flavour was sweetish with a decent, bittering hops finish. Good.

[Gravity cask at the Fez-tival at the Boathouse, Dawlish Warren] Amber, slight white head. Earthy farmyard taste initially put me off. However, a growing tasty hoppy bitterness made it all come good with a refreshing finish.

Cask. Gravity. Clear orange colour with a decent head. Slightly sweet with some citrus hops and grasses in the scent. Nice mouthfeel. Slightly bitter and slightly dry. Some carbonation. Nutty, biscuit malts with some lime from the hops. Quite nice but a bit bland.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2007 The Smuggler’s Inn, Dawlish. Barman aghast I just wanted a half. Orange amber with white lace. Biscuity smooth malt with an insistent, slightly roasty bitterness to finish. Creamy, uncomplicated, pretty good.

Cask gravity at GBBF 2007. Amber, lasting beige head. Caramel aroma, some hedgerow hop fruit. Good condition. Toffee in mouth. Tingly hop on tongue. Pretty good best bitter actually in a more caramelly malty style that I don’t often like.

BCA picked up from the brewery 30-12-06 in a mixed case, and drunk New Years Eve. Slightly darker than golden, but pretty good citrusy beer that was also rather hoppy and pretty moreish.
