2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled on draught at the Sun Inn, Dummer. An amber gold colour with very slight head. Some slight aroma of malts and grassy hops. The taste has mild malts and quite citrusy hops. Hints of lemon and grapefruit. Not bad for a summertime pint, but this sample verged on sourness and was quite astringent. I suspect that if it were kept better it would be much improved.

275ml bottle at 3.6%. It’s labelled as best bitter under the Moondance logo and artwork, however this is nothing short of an American Pale Ale. it’s very hoppy with loads of tropical fruit character. Light golden in colour with little head but a small bitterness.
