A little hoppy for my liking. Tastes much better if bought on draft, it just doesn't seem the same stuff from a bottle!

Bottled 04/12/13. A golden coloured beer with a whitish head and lace. A bready note to the nose which follows through to the mouth. Nice late fruits and a decent body. Not bad.

Golden, no head. Has a mid fruity character but also with a fair bitterness.

Pours clear golden brow, a small head, and low carbonation. Was quite pleasantly suprised with the initial hoppy aroma, very citrussy, zesty lemon, with some caramel and biscuit malts in the background. Finish is quite bitter but too long with a paracetamol aftertaste.

500ml bottle in York National Railway Museum restaurant. Clear golden amber colour, foam white head leaving some lacing and a malty aroma. Taste is malt, toasty, with a spicy bitterness and slight orange rind citrus tangy, metallic note. Medium body and carbonation. OK.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Golden amber colour with a foamy head. Aroma of citrus oranges is quite prominent. Taste is citrus, hops and a touch of grapefruit you find in American IPAs. Smooth on the palate, but a little too thin. This is a very good beer for a bottled version will have to try the cask which hopefully is even better.

March 2010: Nice touch: Where I’d expect to see the best before date (on the top of the cap), are the words, ’WALK THE DOG’.
The brown 500ml bottle conditioned beer was poured slowly into a UK pint sleeve glass.
A terracotta orange body with a white foaming head stared back at me after the pouring. The body almost clear, just the hint of a semi-haze, that is because I poured the sediment in too.
Hops and malts hit the nose, more hops than malts.
The hops win in the taste stakes too, the beer is dry and bitter because of the hop content with all the other ingrediants being pushed into the background.
A good, well made beer, a little too hoppy for my own tastes, but not enough for a ’hophead’ type I should imagine.
