An excellent pale from Ilkley, pours golden in colour, pungent NZ hops in the Aroma. Taste is catty, grassy NZ hops, with a perfectly pitched bitterness for a pale ale. Nelson Sauvin hops are used to great effect here, I would easily put this beer right up there with Kernel and Magic Rocks offerings.

Bottle. Kiwi, sherbet. Fresh and clean. Not a lot of depth. Decent pale but not a keeper

DruncanVeasey (8215) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2017
March 2016. Solid stuff like a vintage (Oakham) Citra; stewed greenery, mandarin and monkey nut. Low headed orange. Aroma of nettles, celery and pith. Reminds me of how Landlord used to taste. Bitter, earthy ans herbal but not overly so. Very likeable.

DanielBrown (4456) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Bottle from Morrisons. Did not pick the NZ hops. Shows what I know. Very bitter hops, green, hedgerow, early cricket season dew tart. Quite good. Good value too.

nbroadbent (5) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2016 does not count
Slightly fruity citric aroma, quite hoppy but not strong; reddy amber in colour with a slight haze, head is a wonderfully fluffy just off-white medium size head that reminds me of a draft bitter; mouthfeel is incredibly smooth with a reasonably light body and very little carbonation. Overall its a great looking beer with a very nice mouthfeel to it but neither the aroma nor the flavour is strong enough for it to be a great pale ale.
