COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Special - 2007.
Soft, even smooth, at first. But UTI Pale Ale soon builds to a hoppy, honeyish crescendo, giving way to a lasting, bitter yet undeniably pleasant influence.

oh6gdx (20333) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 20, 2007
Bottled. Yellow colour, big creamy white head. Aroma is earth, malts, hops and some fruits. Flavour is slight fruits, sweet hops, lots of nectar and mild honeyish hints lurking. A bit cookieish in the aftertaste.

harrisoni (13726) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2007
Bottle at Chris_o Shindig. Pale gold, lasting white head. Lovely hop aroma. Bit of syrup. Lovely hop. Very good, another cracker from T Hall. Fantastic.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2007
Bottle, at London Shindig, August 2007. Another excellent production from Thornbridge. Difficult to categorise. Definitely in the Jaipur mould but perhaps a bit softer and drifting towards APA territory. Very grassy and herbaceous with some spicy, herbal touches and resinous hop backdrop and a smack of grapefruit. Very easy drinking and doesnít flaunt the relatively high alcohol level at all. Iíd love to try this from cask but I donít suppose thatís ever going to happen.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2007
A Mes rate: 50cl bottle at Chris Oís Shindig. Clean blonde colour with a very decent white head. Hoppy nose with some surprising dark character. Must be the malt I guess. It is possible it was still remnants of the Achel I had wiped up earlier. Flavour is excellent. A little hop fest that sent me all over the place. Grassy, bags of citrus, floral and a glorious bitter finish. All you could want from hops. Loads of character. Finish seems better each time I drink some. So clean in the palate. Certainly one of their best. Sure some will wonder what I am raving about but it really hit the spot for me.
