Clean, pale gold, thin white head, some lacing. Fresh citrus hops on the nose. Medium bodied, lots of hops, perhaps a tad too much, the whole taste part seems a wee bit unbalanced, I’ve had worse tho! Bottle from B&M.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Bernie’s Real Ale Off License, Solihull, Poured a cloudy medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is dry crisp and with a little citrus fruit. The flavour is grapefruit sour that dominates the beer. It’s fine initially but it takes over and lingers through into the finish. I struggled to finish the whole bottle. Not very unpleasant I’m sad to say. This is sour, but not in a good way at all.
