MartinT (9267) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
My Bottom Line:
Biscuity scones, mineral undercurrents and herbal hop bitterness converge in this creamy brew.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the misty straw yellow.
-Citrusy hop edges are found.
-Drinkability is high.
-This isnít an IPA in the New World sense, obviously, and has to be approached as such.

On cask at The Bell & Crown, Canterbury.

500ml bottle. Poured clear golden colour, attractive appearance. Small white head. Aroma is floral with lots of caramel notes. Taste is initially citrusy, leaving the palate with a bitter and malty finish. Crisp, sweet and refreshing. Very nice beer. Can see why this is an award winner.

jmgreenuk (7430) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 4, 2013
Cask at the Wellington, Birmingham. Poured a crystal clear light amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is stale malt and weak hops. The flavour is medium bitter. Medium bodied with a bitter liqourice palate and a long rather unpleasant bitter finish. Canít say I really enjoyed this too much. The aftertaste wasnít good. Itís refreshing but the hops donít really work for me. I need my pale ales to be a little more "pale"!
