3.98/5  rDev +8.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Amber with strings of bubbles. Small off-white head.

S: Floral hops. Citrus. Caramel.

T: Dry, woody and earthy, which I like, but it's quite acidic. Has some of that prickly ginger quality. Fudge and toffee as it warms. Quite strong lemonade in the immediate aftertaste. Admittedly I cracked it open when it was too chilled. As it's warmed it's become a lot more personable. It gets earthier, and nothing turns me on more than earthy beer.

M: Almost creamy. Kind of weird but maybe I'm just being nitpicky.

O: Not bad, just make sure it's closer to room temperature than chilled.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

330ml Bottle from Utobeer, Borough Market (£2.50):
Light & clear range tinged amber with a thumb sized, bubbly white head that stays quite well over the opening couple of minutes, only reducing slightly in size.

Light with some grassy hops and a subdued malt base to begin with. There was some light fruity notes in the background but to be honest it smelt a bit basic although still pleasant and most definitely an English pale ale in smell; if only it was stronger in smell.

A balanced beer with some light malts and a grassy hop taste initially along with some background fruits and a nice bitter finish. This one was a nice and very easy to drink beer but I felt it could have been more in your face and less subdued. There was floral notes and caramel.

Carbonation is about medium to lively with this one and the beer is probably light bodied with a very smooth mouthfeel and only the slightest of citrus tangs to go with a somewhat dry finish. Livelier than usual for the style but much as you would expect.

A nice and well made beer I felt it was a little weak in both taste and smell although things became more pronounced and noticeable the further down the glass. There was a nice floral hop and malt base but to be honest nothing in this beer was strong enough for me and it's not a classic.

Amber color with a decent head and good retention. It was very fresh, well I tasted it at the brewery spot.
Aroma of herbal and floral hops. Sweet malt taste balanced with an herbal and fruity hop flavor, plum and peach more easiest identifiable.
Bitterness that continues in the aftertaste along with a dry finish.
Light Body with a medium carbonation with small bubbles.
Very refreshing beer, holds a long session.

Serving type: on-tap
