Amber, dense thin white head, good lacing
Aroma - some cereal malts, pale caramel, little aroma
Taste - cereal malts, fairly bitter english hops, dab of honey, light caramel, not a lot going on here for 5.2% abv
Palate - soft carb, thin to medium body, quite oily. Finish of caramel malts and soft bitter cereal hops
Overall - Hmmm it’s NO hop bomb, more a single bubble bursting in some bubble wrap

Cask at GBBF 2007. A dark golden beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel and grassy hops, as well as light notes of alcohol. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel as well as light notes of alcohol, leading to a slightly bitter finish. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2007
Clear golden pour wearing an initial white head that rapidly diminishes. Brightly, strongly hopped ale trying to live up to its name. Very dry, floral, orangey and even grapefruity aromas. The light grassiness feels more English already, so does the growing sunflower seed and sesame, cerealic sweet maltiness that we find in mouth. Mostly an aromatic hop bill. Well-balanced and with a grip. Light-bodied, fitting carbonation. ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2007
