Has a cloudy dark brown color, some floaties in my ber. Smell is on the hoppy side. Taste is hops, some slightly medicianal flavor I can’t quite describe, a little different. Overall a decent beer.

bottle from Mark&Spencer. Colour is pale and cloudy, foam is white, creamy, have a nice standing. In aroma feels nuts and pale malts. Beer is easygoing, malt starting, middle is nutty and yeasty, low citrusy and hop bittery finnish. Interesting tones in aroma and taste, fine bitter.

Bottle. Pours hazy golden amber. Aroma of yeast, grass and some mild citus. Taste had a bit of sourness to it with some bitter. Didn’t really taste like an APA to me.

PhillyCraft (6450) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2016
BB backlog, Hazy orange brown color with small to medium head. Flavor is English yeast, lemon, bitter and piney centennial, what, and fruity/sweet malt. The malt and yeast out shine the hops in this one. Ok

blackradioboy (185) - SCOTLAND - OCT 29, 2016
Bottle from M&S. Big fizzy head. Hazy lemon. Slight eggy smell which disappears after a minute. Sweetish, but not overly so. Quite neutral with long dry finish. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle in Mort Subite in Altrincham. Golden with a frothy white head. Spicy lemon aroma. The taste has lots of lemon citrus with spice and a nice bitter finish. Really good.

Trying to get excited about this like I have been for some of their IPAs but it’s a fairly standard pale ale - not particularly exceptional. Some grass and pine notes from the hops. A little caramel sweetness in the malt. Quite light and mildly carbonated. A little bit of saison going on.
