tmdaines (28) - Stretford, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2017
Very bitter pale ale. Looks beautiful in the glass as it settles from freshly pumped to a clear golden colour. Nice, but I prefer a slighly less bitter beer of this type.

Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of citrus, tropical fruit, pineapple, resin and a finish with balanced bitterness and fresh citric hops. Light body, quite dry. Fresh and tasty. Nice one.

Probably the best beer in the world at this strength. Citrusy and green tea aroma. Balanced flavor with English malt and tropical fruit hops in great balance. Dont understand the reviews that give a so so score based on strength. Wow!!!!!
