COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular. Also available bottled.
A citrus dominated India Pale Ale, its immediate impression is soft and smooth yet builds to a crescendo of massive hoppiness accentuated by honey. An enduring, bitter finish.

jgb9348 (4488) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 17, 2009
Clear golden coloured body with a very thin white head. Aroma of english hops, metal, apples and a touch of piney cleanser. Light-bodied; Sharp acidic flavour of vinegar, pears, light malt and a bunch of very low alpha acid english kent hops. Aftertaste shows some good characteristics, but the strength of flavours remains subtle. Overall, a nice beer to try, even though I’ve been holding onto it for a while and have seen it at a lot of stores around the world. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from the Utobeer Market Stall in London (Borough), England on 29-November-2008, sampled at home in Washington on this side of the pond on 17-November-2009.

rauchbier (3559) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2009
Bottle, from House of Wine, Lincoln. Deep gold, thin shortlived white head and gentle condition. Pleasant fruity citrus hop aroma with a touch of floral honey sweetness, full bodied in the mouth with solid hops and muted malt sweetness battling against the building bitterness which lingers and dominates in the finish
