[email protected] pub; pours straw like pale golden, slightly clear with fluffy dissipating white head.
Aroma: typical chinook hop profile with intense citrusy notes. Flavor follows aroma: crisp, bread like malt character and hop profile, with notes mentioned above. Hop bitterness is (for my point of view too) high, finish is dry, bitter. Body is light, texture soft, carbonation is moderate.

Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol March 2017. Deep gold in colour, with a small, off-white, head. Lemon fruits, hay, biscuity malts and a touch of citrus hop, before a dryish finish. Fine.

mR_fr0g (13675) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2017
Cask at the moon under water Watford Jdw . A clear pale golden coloured pour with a lasting creamy white head. Aroma is simple base. Malts, faint Cascade, hedgerow hop, little berry and some English yeast ester. Flavour is composed of semi sweet nutty malts, grassy citrus hop, lemon rind faint warming alcohol. Palate is semi sweet grainy,, decent cask condition . Not bad.

3.3
The_Osprey (9373) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2017
Cask handpull at the Crosse Keys London as Black Sheep Pathmaker. Hipster with a big beard on the pump clip. Dark golden yellow, still and pretty clear with a dense and compact creamy head with leaves full, thick lacing. Aroma is airy, faint grass, some lime oil if you really plunge your nose in. But very subdued and airy. Body is smooth with soft carbonation, touch frothy in the mouth. Taste is carpet, mild tangy hop astringency, light malt sugars and some faded melon, breathy musty hops, lemongrass vibe kicks in after a while. A grower or slow burner. I could do pints of this in company. Has enough to keep it interesting over time.
