Its nicely balanced and not really bursting with flavour. On the finish theres a bit of grapefruit bitter and those earthy minerally notes.

Leighton (20794) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours fuzzy gold with a fine, foam head. Some ripe orange in the nose, bits of dry toasty bread. Medium sweet flavor, some lightly toasted sugar, lots of ripe, juicy citrus, orange and tangerine. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Pretty sweet to finish, a bit of sweet bread, more ripe citrus, tangerine, grapefruit, orange. A bit sweeter than typical Kernel APAs, whic is kind of nice. Less dry, doo. Very nice.

Bottle. Pours dark hazy amber with small white head. Distinct NZ hop aroma, slightly earthy, mango, melon, gooseberry. Similar taste, mango and gooseberry followed by an earthyness. Light on the palate with an ungraceful finish. One if his better ones

Tap at BrewDog Camden. It pours hazy orange, with a thin white head. The nose is full of soft tropical fruit: mango, tangerine, orange and marmalade. The taste is citrus pith, earth, tangy marmalade, mango, grapefruit, tangerine, light resin, pine, touch of spice and salt, with a pleasantly bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Smooth, juicy and very easy drinking.

Aroma: Beautiful pine, mango and kiwi notes with a sweet caramel aroma.

Appearance: Dense, caramel coloured body with a thick off-white head. Gorgeous lacing.

Taste: Very hoppy. Taste is more piney than fruity. Light saltiness. Lovely dry finish.

Palate: Medium body with a silky smooth mouthfeel. Flat carbonation.

Overall: One of the best pale ales Ive tasted. This brewery rarely disappoints.
