3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Half litre bottle. A: Pale golden, clear, small head which didn’t hang around long, not much lacing. S: Fantastic pronounced cascade hop aroma, citrus and mango. T: Very fruity, mainly mango but notes of various citrus fruits, slightly bitter finish, well balanced. M: Light body, crisp, decent carbonation gives it a prickly feel. O: Very light, perfect for a summer’s day. Listed as a Czech pilsener but to me it was an English Pale Ale or possibly an "IPL"

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
0,5 l bottle, Pours Golden to pale yellow clear body with nice white dense lacing head. Aroma is berries, plums, pineapple, grass, juniper and some malts. Vague orange fruit hops aroma. Palate is medium full-bodied, lively, carbonation is fizzy and mouthful, crispy. Taste is mild, malty with medium hoppy end. Finish is floral, little bleak, and no real bitterness noticeable. However Cascade flavors reminds it a little of pale ale, and there is a subtle lingering from these hops genera. Although it has clear lager crispiness, the hops varieties used, make this an interesting mix of ale and Pils, or just a weak pale ale with papery notes, depending on your point of view. Overall drinkable and quaffable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(50 cl bottle). Shiny golden, clear, with a medium white head. Aroma has some floral, light fruity and grassy notes, though not as much as one might expect when reading the list of hop varieties. It’s a lager, after all. Quite some honey as well, seemed a bit worty at first. Taste has light bitterness and a touch of sourness. Quite light-bodied, making it rather quaffable. OK.

Bottle, shared with Rockley. Very pale yellow, thick creamy white head. Delicate florals, clean grains, light but flavourful, dry finish. A pale lager with some finesse. Better than anticipated.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is pale lager bready malts and mild but definitely there grassy hops. The flavor is bread, pilsner qualities, pale malts, very slight heat and a citrus/grassy hop finish.
