Bottle, @Half Pint Gentlemans place, 25/03/2016. Golden appearance. Straw yellow too. White lacing. Typical British leaf hop aroma. Spices and herbs. A little lemony and sweaty but generally clean and descent enough. No real defects.

RichardGretton (4739) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2016
Bottle. Golden beer with a good strong head. The aroma is lightly hopped with yeastiness. The flavour is dry and hopped with quite heavy bitterness and then yeastiness in the background. Overall a reasonable pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jasonbenali (191) - Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2015
Pours clear with an amber yellow with a thin head and mild carbonation. Aroma has promise with lemon, orange, tangerine, floral, hint of biscuit, but doesnt quite deliver on the flavour, which is a little harsh possibly down to the Target hops in there. Decent length finish with some bitterness, yet also soapiness. Thin and lacking body. Not bad and slipped down nicely, but wanted more malt and/or hop flavours coming through.
