2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, from Co-op, Hessle. Faintly hazy gold, thin shortlived white head and gentle condition. Delicate fruity nose with muted hop resin, melon, lemon citrus and a slightly spicy yeastiness. Full bodied in the mouth with a dominant chalky hop bitterness with hints of bubblegum and citrus, faint pineapple and a little yeast. Finish is quite dry and bitter but kept in check by a little fruity sweetness.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Beer52.
Pours Golden, medium carbonation, half a finger head. Aroma of farmyard...put me off a bit....after some searching, found some lemon and pine. Taste is much better, loads of pine, loads of it, then some biscuity malt a touch of caramel too, then lemon and grapefruit, gooseberry too. Nice!

I poured this next to a bland pale lager for my wife and the two beers looked remarkably similar, except that the head lasted longer on the lager. Not a good start. Gets better though - there’s a bit of oily body to it, and a fruity hoppy aroma. Flavour has grass, pine and lemon, and a really nice bitter finish. Not bad for an easy drinking 3.5% beer.

Bottle - pale golden with a bright white bubbly head. Aroma of some grassy hop, pale malt, a little hay, bread, toasted sesame seeds and a hint of cumin. Taste of grassy hop, gay and straw. Light lemon peel, hints of pale malt and brown bread. Light bitterness to finish. Very light body, high carbonation. I very much enjoyed it.

500ml bottle shared with Ashton McCobb. Yorkshire part two tasting. Pours clear gold, thin short-lived white head. Light lemon and pine aromas. Taste is more citrus, resinous hops, nice malt backbone. Good body for the strength. Nice.
