Draft @ BBC. Clear amber with a long lasting white head. Aroma is light citrus and floral with some cereal grain. Flavor is malty with a firm hop bitterness. Medium to light body with average carbonation. Fairly ordinary Pale, no real flaws just somewhat mild all around. jcweaver (770) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle. Pours copper with a small beige head. Very light aroma of sweet malts and citrus. Flavor of moderate sweet malts and earthy and citrus hops. Finish is more toward the malty side with a touch of citrus and pine hops. Also a strange herbal note.

12 fl oz bottle via my bro, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. durhambeer (2585) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 4, 2012
App.: Clear copper with a nice light tan foam.
Aroma: Strong caramel and sweet, sugary malts, grapefruit and marmalade, rye bread crust, fairly citrusy, a little pine/resin, a touch savoury/brothy, quite fruity, some berries, maybe apricot?, nice.
Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence.
Flav.: Much more stark than the nose, quite resinous, a bit floral, fairly earthy, not nearly as friendly, dry, earthy malts, a little burnt sugar, quite different from nose; dry with strong bitterness and a stark, earthy, stern finish.
Holy bipolar brew, Batman!
On tap at the Louisville brewpub. Pours a light clear amber with a nice light foamy head from the draught. Nose is fresh hops, citrusy with a bit of light pine. Sweet but mild malt. Light and refreshing.

Dark amber color. Strong flavor beyond hops. Make this one into an OPA and it might be ok.
