Transatlantic collaboration between two of the a the world’s best brewers, a fruity pale ale brewed using Sierra Nevada’s hops, malts from the UK and something called a ‘hop torpedo’ which intensifies the hop aromatics.

I was very excited to get my hands on this. However, my excitement was soon scuppered. Very average and not at all exciting. Didn’t bother with another pint, and probably wouldn’t again.

Keg @ Red Squirrel, Edinburgh [120713]
Light yellow, clear, thin white head, light lacing
Aroma of soft lemony citrus zest, very light fruity pale malt backbone, dab of grapefruit, fresh bit sharp citrus
Taste as aroma, slightly flat in flavour in the middle.
Palate - Thin to medium body, little oily. Finish - dry and bitter
Overall - Expected more from a collab like this. Just an above average beer, rather disappointing tbh

Keg @ Inn Deep. Pale golden yellow, reasonable head. Mild grain aroma. Biscuit citrus flavour. Fizzy on palate. Nothing special.

McNeillR (979) - SCOTLAND - JUN 17, 2013
Clear pale golden colour, white fluffed head. Sweaty hop nose with musky/dusty faint linger. Crisp carbonation sweeps through very quickly with a squeaky lemon ’n lime vibe carrying a lot of sweetness to the finish. The CO2 kicks sand in what could be a flavoursome AND refreshing beer, but this is a little too light and pissy. Would love to see a bottle.

Keg @ thelyric. Pours clear pale gold with fine carbonation and white head. Not a massive aroma but some funkiness and malts. Light bodied but not watery. Deep honey flavour with some candy I couldn't place and a sweet finish. Smooth and well balanced. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
