Copper color, gloriously creamy looking white head. Really excellent appearance. The nose is mostly juicy hops, grapefruit etc. The taste light sweet. Pleasant bready malts present. The mouthfeels light-medium. Overall nice work.

mjs (6824) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 25, 2013
(Cask at Gallows Bird Real Ale Festival 13) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head small and white. Aroma had fruitiness, sweetness and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A good but a bit unbalanced beer.

BlackHaddock (6757) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2015
Hand-pulled half-pint in the Pheasant, Wellington Shropshire on 28th April 2015. Good looking deep amber body with enough hops to float a Battleship. I like West Coast style APAs and this had just enough bitterness to give it that sort of taste, too hoppy for some Im sure, but it worked for me.

AshtonMcCobb (6068) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 9, 2015
Bottle from Saucy Pears. Appearance - amber with a lovely fluffy head. Nose - red fruits and tangy orange. Taste - more tangy orange going into marmalade. Tangy lime finish. Palate - medium bodied with a big tangy texture and a long dry and tangy finish. Overall - nose a bit gentle but better thereafter.
