Craft Clerkenwell. Light haze on this pale gold beer. Little white head. Fresh light palate with fine carbonation. Pale malt has a little lager like character. Touch of rye spice. Great hops - light juicy floral tangerine with lesser touches of orange and lemon. Semi dry finish. Fresh and very drinkable, a delight!

Cask conditioned handpump Cask Pub & Kitchen London 22/04/13. A light golden beer almost yellow coloured with a white head and lace. Good citrussy hops in the nose with some sweet biscuity elements. It has that same balance in the mouth. A good body and a well constructed beer.

JohnRMurdoch (4791) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 12, 2013
Cask @ The State Bar. Golden amber colour, reasonable head. Spicy resin aroma. Resin grain flavour. Quite smooth. Not a bad example of this style of beer.

jamestulloch (3995) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 7, 2013
Aroma: Faint aroma of bread, apricot and earth.

Appearance: Clear golden body with a medium off-white head that slowly fades. No visible carbonation. Superb lacing.

Taste: Grain, cereal and earthy notes. Apricot, pale malt with a light peppery spice. Low bitterness.

Palate: Medium to full body with a sticky mouthfeel. Flat carbonation.

Overall: This is well balanced, but flavour wise its not particularly distinctive or exciting. I really want Fyne Ales to brew a new beer that has the wow factor of Hurricane Jack or Jarl.
