Notes/Commercial Description:
A unique schizophrenic beer where you'll face off against floral hoppy flavours up front, leading into a dry spicy bitterness on the back. Need something a bit different to wake up your taste buds? It's time to get a FUBAR.

Pint

A: Pale golden, clear, initial one finger head, kept a lid of film the whole time.

S: Citrus gummi bears, floral, more of an American than English aroma.

T: Fruity, lots of wheat, moderate bitterness, slightly watery.

M: Light body, minimalcarbonation, smooth.

O: Another British take on an American style, others have done it better.

Visual: Clear golden. Visible carbonation. Pillowy white head.

Nose: Earthy yeast, grassy hops with a fruity tinge. Subtle and green.

Taste: Bready malts with a dry grass, pine and slightly peppery hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, with a tickle from the carbonation. Slightly drying, but refreshing.

A 330ml bottle with a BB of March 2014. Picked up a little while back from Trembling Madness in York. Love the label art....

Poured into a tulip pint glass. A golden-amber hue with faint haze and light carbonation. Yields a large head of creamy white foam that hangs around for a few minutes before subsiding to a surface layer. Some lacing. Aroma of fruity hops with hints of grapefruit, peel, citrus, mild caramel and earthy yeast. Hoppy but not too in-your-face.

Tastes of fruity hops and subtle malt with a dry, bitter finish. Notes of grapefruit, orange peel, citrus, faint grass, light caramel, earthy yeast and stewed hops. Well-attenuated and slightly spicy, followed by a crisp bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with pleasant carbonation but a somewhat underwhelming body. Mildly astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of bitter aromatic hops, citrus and earthy yeast.

Nicely crafted, even it if doesn't blow my socks off. Looks good, with a lovely aroma of fruity hops and faint malt. The flavour is a tad less impressive, with the hop notes more restrained relative to the malt. So-so body; verges on the watery. Decent if not outstanding, though I'd have it again on a hot day. Worth sampling if you come across it.

FUBAR (F...d Up Beyond All Recognition): half-pint in Ye Olde Fighting Cocks, Oakengates on 10 Oct 2013.

Golden, crisp and sharp: hop bitterness from the start. Wasn't sure what to expect, it certainly impressed. The aroma was a mixed bag with spicy hops and grains, as was the taste, with the aforementioned hops to the front.

Different and interesting, don't normally have keg style dispensed beers, glad I did on this case.

A Pale Ale?
Well it certainly looks like one pale amber with sporadic but healthy tiny white bubbled head.

Big candy grapefruit aroma and sorry to sound pretentious but a whiff of bracing sea air.

Not the tongue wrestler I was expecting but still flavoursome but more importantly complex and with depth yes there is floral hops in the opening sequence
but not greatly citrusy yes it does warm into a dry bitterness but somehow
there is more of a traditional UK rather than US nature to this.

Sterling mouthfeel, perfect carbonation
easy drinking but not thin,
light unobtrusive fizz but not flat

Good stuff.

Half pint from cask at the Cask Pub and Kitchen. Pours a yellowy golden colour, with a white head. Smells fresh and fruity. Tastes nicely balanced between the dry, biscuity malts and fruity, citrus hops. Less of a hop presence than the other Tiny Rebel Pale Ales. Overall a pretty nice beer.

I had it Hand pulled from cellar-cask.
Light amber color with a thin head. Fruity and citrusy hop aroma.
Sweet malty taste with a hoppy initial punch (not extreme) of floral or parfumy hop notes, then followed by a fruity (rather tropical) finish. Though still a bitter and hoppy aftertaste.
Light body with light carbonation and practically with no bubbles.
