4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at Weasel Kenievel’s gaff. Hazy gold pour with a white head that hung around for the duration. Enticing citrus and hop laden nose. Flavour was more hoppage, citrus and tropical fruits and was superbly drinkable. Difficult to stop from just guzzling down in a few hefty swigs. If I wanted to sound deeply pretentious I could say this was a symphonic hop medley.

Very hazy gold beer, good white head. Palate is light and semi dry and crisp. Sweet white flowers in the head. Light smooth malt and then a minerally carbonated sting. The sweet flowers return and contrast nicely with bitter grapefruit pith. Whispers of fresh orange and tropical fruits. Dry crisp finish. Nice bitter-sweet pale ale, with a notably mild Mosaic presence. Very nice.
