A 355ml bottle with a BB of Sept 2012. ABV stated as 5.9%. Acquired from my local beer specialist.
Poured into a tulip pint glass. A hazy golden-amber hue with plenty of floating sediment and good carbonation. Produces a large head of white foam with a creamy consistency and good retention; it eventually subsides to a surface layer. Aroma of dry, yeasty malt with notes of aromatic hops - especially citrus and hints of tropical fruits and pine.
Tastes of light, sweet malt with a yeasty character and a dry, bitter finish. Notes of yeast esters, grapefruit, citrus and pine. More bitter than aromatic. Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with good body for the style. Rather astringent. Aftertaste of malt and bitter pine.
A tasty pale ale - good stuff. The blend of malt, yeast and hop flavours is solid; my only complaint is that the hop bitterness seems to overwhelm the aroma, leaving it slightly unbalanced. However, this is still a highly drinkable beer. Worth trying.
