UPDATED: OCT 17, 2011 pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin white head, good lacing. aroma packs a punch of citrus with a specific grapefruit tinge. in the mouth it is bitter and prickly on the tongue. tastes much more alcoholic than it is. another really good beer from Durham

jsquire (4525) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2011
Golden colored beer with a thick foamy white head. Flinty nose with hop pellet notes. Very carbonated and tingley on the tongue. Mineral flavors with nice bread crust. There are lots of hops in this beer, with bitter grapefruit rind and some green grass in the finish. This is a full flavored blond ale.

harrisoni (18820) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2010
500ml bottle from The Bottle Shop, Canterbury. Hazy orange gold colour with thick off white head. Attractive initial hop aroma. More grassy hop in the mouth. Good initial sherbert hop up top, but then in the mouth the flavours get a little muddied with then a grassy hop finish. Starts well but tails off as the flavours in the mouth are not in harmony for me.
