[500ml bottle, gift from Maureen & Dave - cheers!] Murky pale amber with a thin off-white head. Fruity, yet a little sour. Some earth & flowers. A little dryness, a little bitterness. Below par for what I normally think is a decent brewery.

Cask @ Ice house Weatherspoons in Derry. Dark golden with lots of good lace. Aroma is nothing special. Dull floral hops and fruit. Soft, dry palate. Hoppy flavors highlight the balanced beer. Sweet malts complemented by herbal, floral hops. Decent.

(bottle conditioned) Nice eazy to sink ale . To me it tastes fReSh and cask ale resemblig ,ovbiously cause its alive and not stale like too many UK bottled beerz. There is a cool amber glowing base that welcomes you ...with fluffy white top. I’d have given it a 5 but the head died too soon, which sux! Flavours be a very good balance between lots of chewey , biscuty malts and dried fruit like (almond ) then the hops are floral, spicy and fruity (apricot ,oranges)Dry ,tangy hop bitternes endz. Quality pale ale.
