Can from Cotteridge Wines; clear golden amber pour with a bubbly off white head, aroma has crisp caramel and some quite resinous pine, taste has hints of grapefruit, pine, hint of dark fruits, slight sweet caramel, this beer has been on my radar for quite a while, it is decent but may have been slightly left behind by current hop masters.

Feb 2018 - American pint (470ml) can at home in Richmond watching Scotland win the Calcutta Cup. As 'Half Acre Daisy Cutter', 5.2%, about 7 weeks since canning. This beer is one of the classics, apparently. A long-time top APA. Much emulated, and now long surpassed. Pours a pretty clear dark amber, still with a foamy off-white head that leaves full and thick lacing. Aroma is musty, flinty, stones, pine, faint berries - like blackberry. Quite nice. Body is light and rounded with tingly carbonation. Taste is very clean and actually quite neutral, anise and fennel, flint, building anise, crisp into the finish with a long musty linger. Very, very easy to drink. (7-4-6-3-15=3.5)
