Aroma of fruits, bread, grass and hints of herbs and citrus. Pale golden with a white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a average to soft carbonation. Dry and slightly bitter finish.Overall a very plesant Golden Ale. Nice refreshing hop bitterness with a balancing sweetness from the malt. Easy drinkable. Lynk (15) - - FEB 18, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2018 Bottle. Clear pale golden yellow. Strong citrus flavour, quite a hoppy bitterness. jrh2254 (222) - burton-on-trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2018
From a beer hawk mystery case. Pours golden light orange. Aroma of fresh hops. Very hoppy taste , and not too sweet. Great bitter.

Bottle. Almost clear golden with white head. A bit bitter in the beginning, but orange, grapefruit and citrus dominates. Some herbs and pine in the end also. Good, but the aroma is amazing.

Hazy golden colour with small white foam. Aromas sweet of citrus leaves and grapefruits with notes of grapes and slight soap. Palate, light body with smooth texture leaving slighty dry finish. Taste, bittersweet of grapefruits, and more graoefruits? Overall, nice brew for only 4% with strong hop character. hellrunner (14) - - DEC 8, 2017
Liked by jen and even Jonah, not so much by Andy, fizzy and fruity with a light yellow colour

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2017 Beer Hawk advent calendar as it looks like most have 👍 poured cloudy with a strong grapefruit and pineapple smell slight malty after taste with a bitter over tone. Got to say I like it. Davros IX (636) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2017
Bottle at home in Beer Hawk advent calendar. A nice murky pour with a good and long-lived head. Loads of hops on the nose and even more in the taste. Surely you can't call this a pale ale? its an IPA with those massive hops! Mind you, Buxton do like their hops, so their interpretation of a pale ale is probably going to be full of them and somewhat shouty. Whatever. This is a very good beer.

330ml dark bottle, unfiltered. No 2 bottle from the Honest Brew advent calendar. This is too hoppy for me. Not my thing at all, and I'm now wondering if I'm going to dislike the rest of the calender. I recently worked my way through a Hoptimism delivery and found most of the beers they sold were not to my taste. I am beginning to suspect it may be the case with Honest Brew. I do prefer malty beer. While I like hops as a means to balance the malt, and while I have enjoyed, perhaps more because it was new, beers with citric hops in the past, I have genuinely had a problem with beers that use an excessive (to me ) amount of hops. At one time it was just American brewed beers that used excessive citric hops, but it seems that a lot of new British breweries are doing the same, and Hoptimism and - it seems - Honest Brew favour those sorts of beers. I can't finish this - I've only had a few sips. I don't like hop tea. I like beer. This burns my lips and tongue.
