Not bad but a little too bitter for me. Still slips down throat powerful easy. Nor is it the worst I?ve ever drunk

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at The Playhouse, Colchester. Poured a clear medium amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is weak malt hop slightly fruity leading to a medium bitter flavour with a watery malt liquorice hop bitter palate and a super long bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. It really was a super liqourice hop bitter ale but very drinkable and fine for a session. Actually i finished drinking this 5 minutes ago and the bitterness in the finish is still there!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled this ale in Esquires, Glasgow (JDW) in August 2009. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale straw in colour with a thin open white head. Short hoppy aroma with a tang of grapefruit zest. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts gives a juicy mouthwatering whack of grapefruit and zesty lemon peel which is quite intense. Resiny hop flowers gives a really dry aftertaste and elderflowers comes through in the increasingly dry, tart finish. An ok session ale but this is rather too bitter for me.
