I forgot where I tried this but I think it was on tap at O’Connors in Uppsala. Fruity and hoppy smell with peach and passion fruit. Mild taste, bready malty with a light hoppy aroma. Semi smooth and light body.

Batch 0052. Pale gold with a lacing frill of white. Aroma of gooseberry, passion fruit, lemon rind and light minerals. Good clean soft tropical hop over solid, slightly greasy pale malts; some farmyard yeast towards the bottom of the bottle. Grass and monkey nut hints. Good.

Bottle at home, 16th March 14. Not too much on the nose, a bit light, easy drinking, but fairly forgettable.

500ml bottle from Rehill’s. Hazy deep amber with a moderate white head. Fruity, lightly floral aroma. Flavour is quite sweet to begin, honey and pine and grape, followed by citrus, grass and orange zest. Topped off by a moderate but lingering bitter finish. Really well balanced. Delicious.

Bottle Rehills Newcastle. Peach & kiwi aroma, gorgeous soft, semi sweet peaches and cream palate. This is way too easy to drink, has a lovely satsuma taste in the finish and us one of my favourites of this year so far. Well worth seeking out.
