Poured from the bottle. The look was nothing special with a clear amber colour. The aroma was a bit faint with citrus-hops, floral notes, and light malts. The beer was lighter than expected, floral, hop-forward, and crisp. Not overpowering and well balances.
Would I buy it again? Definitely.

Clear bronze with loose fluffy off white head that trails. Sour grain and crusty bread dominate the nose, with only mild grapefruit rind half buried.
Baguette crust and dried apricots before cedar shavings and orange peel for hops.
A bit of nectarine and Lemonhedz on the finish and a long astringent bitter linger. Medium to light, crisp, dry, only slight chew.
Part of Clanconnel's relaunched range.
Mismatch here between nose and flavour - smells pure English, with nearly no hops at all, but crushes with surprising IBUs given the strength and origin. Could definite use more aroma hops; won't ever be mistaken for a Blonde, though there is slight MO butter underneath somewhere.
I could see it being a summer quencher, and also being shipped to the US, which I think is what Clanconnel is all about.
