JorgeLee (2235) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2017
Cask, GBBF 2017. Rich yellow colour, white foam. Some sweetish bready malt. Some fruity hop note, then a building hoppy citrus finish, quite deceptively bitter. Quite liked that, seemed a bit dull at first but improved as I finished the glass.

Keg @ Mallinsons Corner, Huddersfield. Golden-blonde, crisp and well hopped as you might expect, and slightly dry.

3.3
Theydon_Bois (20628) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2017
Keg at the Three Johns, Islington, 20/02/17. Golden orange with a decent off white head. Nose is melon, citric sherbets, fresh grass, pale malts, toasted grains. Taste comprises lemon drizzle, tangerine, soft bread, grains, straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a splash of hops. Ok mellow hoppy pale affair.

3.5
Scopey (15704) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2017
Keg at Three Johns. It pours golden with a small, but sturdy white head. The aroma is sweet, juicy, grapefruit, lemon rind, a bit peachy, apricot, floral, toasty grain, cracker, straw. The taste is crisp, dry, raw bitterness, straw, floral, grassy, grapefruit, apricot, persimmon, some astringency with a dry, zesty finale. Finish is raw and dry. Light - medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty punchy, maybe a bit raw but decent.

3.4
Leighton (22307) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2017
Keg at the Three Johns - London. Pours totally clear gold with a thick, frothy white head. Strong grassy and floral hops in the nose, some citrus zest. Light sweet flavour with aggressive grassy bitterness, lemon rind, dry ple mats, hay, some grain husk. Light bodied with average carbonation. A little harsh on the finish, more strong grass, citrus rind, pale crackers. Like so many Mallinson’s beers, the bitterness is just a bit of out of balance.

3.6
JohnCook101 (535) - - AUG 30, 2015
Hazy amber, almost nonexistent head. Little aroma to speak of, mildly zesty I suppose. Flavour is as you’d expect for a well-hopped American style pale ale, lots of citrus, some tropical fruit, pine, etc. Not complex or innovative but still right up my street.
