3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
9th November 2013
Lightly hazy gold beer, small white head. Palate is light, airy and minerally crisp. Thin malt, pretty neutral. Super light tangy hops. Mild citrus and dried fruits. Whisper of lemon. Minerally crisp finish. Somehow hangs together and works well!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Quite mild in flavours with a slightly thin palate but this balances yeasty malt nicely with dry hops to make a really drinkable beer. Not bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle). Pours thin white head, good covering, persisting well. Hazy straw colour. Mid carbonation. Unusually, intensely fresh hop aroma, typically English; spicy, herbal, grassy, leafy, bit floral. A sort of honeyish sweetness to the aroma too. Taste - Quite sweet. Nice, fresh, oily hop flavours, sweet fruit (some grape) and a bit of a herbally/spicy tang coming later, giving a slightly dry finish and leaving some nice, spicy hop aromas lingering for a short time. Not much bitterness throughout either, considering the aromas and flavours present. A decent, sweet, light caramelly malt backbone that doesn’t detract from or compete with the hops. Mid-light body, little bit oily, refreshing, but not watery. Good flavours and aromas for the strength. Quite a good showcasing of the aroma, flavour and complexity of good, fresh hops. And pretty drinkable and tasty too!

500ml bottle (Bishops Stortford BF2011)
Sulfury, but lovely full hops and honey in the aroma. Taste comes over as reminding me of conifers. Super-sulfury hoppy finish.
