2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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
