A 330ml bottle with a BB of Nov 2012. This is a fairly new offering from Leeds brewery - described as a hoppy pale ale. The branding is modern, with the front label featuring a word cloud.

Poured into a Sam Smith's pint glass. A clear, pale-straw hue with good carbonation. Yields a huge head of brilliant white foam that lasts for several minutes before subsiding to a surface layer. Aroma of light malt with a crisp bitterness. Notes of leafy citrus hops. Also a huge whiff of diacetyl that overpowers and spoils everything. Boo!

Tastes of light malt with an aromatic hoppy bitterness. Notes of spicy citrus upfront, followed by a dry, insistent bitterness. Again a significant diacetyl flavour that smoothers everything else. Mouthfeel is light, smooth and tingly, with mild astringency. Aftertaste of subtle citrus bitterness.

Not bad - pity about the horrible diacetyl that steals the show. The light character and fruity hoppiness suggest that this has been designed to compete for lager drinkers. I dare say it's much better on cask, where conditioning will improve the flavour. If you chance across it, give it a whirl!
