Practically perfectly clear. Brassy with no head. Glassy and amber-like. Attractive. Smells like a pretty average golden bitter, with some subtle tropical aromas to set it ever so slightly apart from the herd. Slightly. Honeyed bread, mango, and lime.

This one isn't going to set the world on fire. Pleasantly bitter and totally decent through and through – an easy quaffer – but nothing to write home about. In fact, not much to write about at all. It's got a nice grapefruity bitterness and a hint of lychee, but not much character. It feels by-the-book and restrained.

Light golden, hazy

Slight floral citrus tones.

Can't say if this reflects the true taste of this beer but going with the bartenders suggestion, that there was nothing wrong with the beer, all I can say is it has sour (off) tastes.

I didn't drink enough to get any mouth feel.

Over all if what I had was a true reflection of the beer i wouldn't recommend it.

Gravity halfpint at the London Drinker festival.

A: Hazy amber body; almost no head. Pretty weak.

S: Hoppy (herbal/floral), grainy (husky/toasty), and uninspired.

T: A bit fuller than the nose, with the toasty malt asserting itself alongside the perfumy hops. Nicely balanced, with a heavy finish. Not bad.

M: Smooth, almost still, fairly light. Meh.

O: Not bad, but no better than average.
