Cask; Seasonal - June. Previously regular. Regular. Also available bottled (not bottle conditioned).
Pale premium bitter, this beer has grapefruit and citrus top notes and a bitter yet fruity palate from the use of American Hops, including Centennial. Drinks easier than its strength...a little devil of a brew!

ManVsBeer (10806) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2017
Cask @ Calans, Hebden Bridge. Clear deeper golden with a creamy head. Has a mild metallic-sweet aroma and taste, but malty in this respect.

Cask in Bon Accord. Aroma is spicey and peppery richer malts and hops, however as it goes through the pint the aroma dies a bit and appley sweetness ruin a bit. Taste does exactly the same journey as the aroma, to much so, as it had alot of potential if it hadnt been vented for so long.

OStreetBrewery (120) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 1, 2006
Wow!, this is something I would expect from a US Micro rather than an english one. Pours a hazy gold, again a E&S beer with a clarity issue. Big pillowy white head. Big piny fruity luscious sweet hop aromas with a wholesome malt biscuit note. Tart grapfruit , sweet malt give way to a strong definite bitterness. Right at the end malt biscuit reemerge.This brewer is a hophead. Probibly alittle to bitter for my taste but still a very impressive beer. Bigger in flavour than many american examples I have tried. Go Britania.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2006
Hazy golden colour with a foamy off white head. Malty, fruity aroma with hoppy notes. Malty, buttery flavor with a light fruityness.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2006
Bottle. Light hazy yellow colour with a big white head. Malty, flowery, grape, hoppy aroma and a light sweet malty, dry flowery, grape, hop taste. Medium body with a dry finish.

joergen (28772) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2006
Bottle. Hazy golden coloured with a white head. Aroma of malts, hops, grape fruits and grass. Flavour of malts, grape fruits, hops and grass.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 30, 2006
Tasted 30/06/2006. 500ml bottle from Rumble’s, Wellington. A bit of a commiseration tipple. Pale gold with a just off-white head and soft lacy ribbons. Nose is definitely dominated by the grapefruity hops but there lovely sweet pale or caramalt sweetness behind it. Little malt sweetness up front, quite dry, with strong citrus hop flavour through the middle and an extremely intense, bitter herbal finish. Just a touch too intense. Nice barley sweetness pops back through on the palate, with the citrus hop flavour. Gentle mouthfeel thanks to the low carbonation and medium weight. Excellent American Pale Ale, along the lines of NZ’s Epic and Hopsmacker.

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2006
Cask Handpump at The Wellington, Birmingham. Gold with a very short head. A light citrus scent. Very bitter and perfumed. Thick and silky on the palate. Good stuff.
