Taste of lemon, orange, some boiled sweets, a hint of straw, subtle caramel and slight floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, flora hop bitterness in the finish. A very simple, American hopped cask pale ale. Citrus and floral notes from the hops and a subtle straw and caramel malt balance. Decent. Stuu666 (13093) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 23, 2017

Pale amber rather than gold, this had the typical citrus aromas and flavours of American hops but it also had a reasonable malt presence too, making it a more mellow offering than many of its ilk.

Pint at the Ring Southwark. Pours gold with modest thickness head, which lasts. Perhaps a bit over-carbonated. Soft aroma of hay and cinder toffee. Aggressively dry, certainly refreshing. Ok, but more an IPL than APA, and not much depth. Good first pint thirst quencher. jamestulloch (4061) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 29, 2016
