From can on plane, the aroma is crisply hopped, notes of grass. The taste is sweet, great carbonation, a little selzer water flavors, hops, and sweetness like brown sugar. The mouthfeel is medium. The finish is clean, slight bitterness and a slight lingering sweetness. Very refreshing and easy to drink with a good balance of sweetness to hops.

Light amber and very heady white foamy pour. Lots of lacing. Nice aroma of pine and floral elements with a background of toasted white bread. The body is near medium. The taste brings our a delightfully happy bitterness balanced with a mild sweetness. Nice beer.

Hazy yellow pour with lots of carbonation and a lasting head. Light lacing on the side of the English pint glass. Nice citrus aroma. A little Less hop bitterness than most American pale ales which is a good thing. Light body with a slightly dry finish. Not bad at all.

harrisoni (19003) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2017
Bottle from GBBF 2017 and drunk at home. Hazy gold colour lasting cream head i thought a fairly drinkable and likeable hoppy pale ale. Good bitterness. I just thought it was really well put together. Some peach apricot fruit. Some grapefruit bitterness on the finish. A little harsh maybe but i liked it.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2017 Draft from LGA airport. Pours milky gold in color. Good flavor, but very light. Easy to drink and would save for a day where I want to drink a lot.

On a flight to Seattle. 33cl can, poured into a nice plastic cup. Pours hazy dark golden with a lasting, foamy, white head. The aroma contains hops, malt, corn/grain, grass and orange. It tastes light sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Short, hoppy finish, thin body, watery/slick texture, fizzy carbonation. Quenching, nice introduction to the style.

Had this in 2014, and remember it as being better then--more of an orange color, a bit of caramel taste. Now it’s a pretty average "extra pale ale". Kind of nondescript hops, probably a bit too bitter for a pale ale.
