Tasted by half-pint at my local JDW pub, the Half Moon, in East End London.

A: dark orangey straw hue, almost like pale amber; slight chill-haze formed in the liquid; sparse beer head and low carbonation.
S: lightly citric touch of hops (guess from the Willamette hops as used in this beer) rides on an earthy bed of Fuggles hops; not too complex, but smelling plenty of chunky pieces of dry hops in there.
T: citric-zest and twang of (Willamette) hops dominate the palate--juicy at first, yet turning 3D bitter soon afterwards; joined by a roasty edge of malts, the whole palate leads to a zesty-bitterness lingering knowing no boundaries...
M&D: light-bodied and smooth on mouthfeel, with just ideal carbonation to keep a refreshing feel. All in all, this is a session bitter designed to quaff in summer, yet the best element of this beer lies in the superbly lingering ending touch of bitterness from hops... making this light-weight ale taste of good depth!

Reviewed from notes.

Sampled at The Cricketer's, Keighley, W. Yorks.

Pours a straw gold with a creamy white head with some nice retention. Solid foam down the glass. Pretty. Nice fruity and hoppy nose. Quite pronounced. Lots of fruit notes in initial taste and then developing to a delightful earthy hop finish. Faint peachy notes. Very nice. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel with a moderate weight to it. This is an exceedingly drinkable ale. A first class bitter for sure and, unsurprisingly, a gold medal winner. Well worth a try, or perhaps a whole evenings session.
