3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale and nicely lively. Looks like a good ’un. Nice lemony hops on the nose, crisp and slightly sweet malts in there too. Slightly green with tingly cereals. In the mouth a big wholesome cereal flavour quickly gives way to nice drying hops and a light maltiness. Leaves the tongue very dry but with a really tasty aftertaste of dusty straw and pine needles. A light carbonation and body make this quite drinkable. I wish it didn’t dry the tongue quite so much.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ Beer Exposed, September 2008.
Pours a clear, lightly pale golden with a small, white film head. Aroma is hoppy, some pine and a bit citric. A bit flat mouthfeel. Flavour is lightly hoppy, weak malty sweetness. Not impressive.

Clear, golden body. No head at all. Shades of fruity-hops in aroma. Flavoured by mild and sweet grapefruit offset by bitter notes towards the finish. Oily texture (Third pint, hand-pulled cask at GBBF, 09.08.2008)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, Barleycorns, Nantwich. A really pleasant surprise this one.
Hazy orangey colour with a white head. Citrus,grassy, hop aroma. Really liked the cascade hop present here. Great balance of fruit and hop with a superbly bitter finish. This is seriously under rated on here. A cracking brew.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light amber colour, small quickly fading white head. Smells of blokes changing rooms, sweaty socks. A little metal in there, grapefruit, slighty bitter and a bit too watery in the texture for me.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light-golden with fruit and citrus in the aroma. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of fruit, citrus and hints of caramel, and the finish is dry. It’s quenching and uncomplicated, ideal for a session beer!
