Served cold into pint glass from 500ml bottle.

A) Pours a lightish amber colour with a thin white head that dissipates quickly to a film.

S) Served cold so not getting the full nose. The wheat in the brew is evident, unfortunately (in my opinion). As it warms up a bit, the fragrant hops come more to the fore.

T) Good. Lightish biscuity malts come first. Then a fair hit of fragrant hops; I am surprised that this beer is so popular, as this kind of fragrant hop-forward taste is actually fairly rare in popular cask ales in England. Then a moderately lingering slightly dull bitter after taste, which makes you want to take another mouthful.

M) Fine. Carbonation and consistency are right for the style.

O) A great beer from the bottle; had it on cask recently (Tunnels Beach bar, Ilfracombe) and that adds a lovely slightly sour aftertaste due to the conditioning to an already distinctive beer. Get some.

Tawny color, faint haze, thin cap of fine bubbles that really lasted. Solid sheds of lace on the glass. Balanced and mild aroma, a bit of earthiness and English malt character. Same in the flavor, along with mild bitterness and slight dryness. Medium bodied, low carbonation, decent texture. Overall, an enjoyable pint.

A 500ml bottle with a BB of Sept 2014. Picked up a little while back from a supermarket. A classic pale ale that shares both modern and traditional influences.

Poured into a straight pint glass. A golden-amber hue with faint haze and plentiful carbonation. Yields a decent head of creamy white foam that lasts for a minute or two before settling as a patchy surface layer. Aroma of floral hops with hints of grass/hay, faint fruitiness, ale yeast, biscuity malt and a touch of earthiness. Relatively subtle but pleasant.

Tastes of light caramel malt with a floral hop character and a crisp, dry finish. Notes of flowery hops, grass/hay, subtle white pepper, biscuity grain, fruity ale yeast and stewed hops. Well-attenuated, followed by a mild bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with spritzy carbonation and decent body. Lightly astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of grassy hops, earthy yeast and faint malt.

A nicely-balanced pale ale with a light, hoppy character. Looks alright, while the aroma and flavour are a satisfying blend of grassy hops, fruity ale yeast and malt. Body is OK; a tad thin but it suits the style. Quenches a thirst, particularly on a hot day. I can also attest that this is very nice on cask. Worth sampling if you come across it.

500ml bottle. Guiness Pint glass. Brass color, clear appearance. White crown shows fairly good retention. Pale malt, subtle toasted, orange & citric aromas. Slight toasted flavor, hints of tropical fruit & floral bitterness at first sip. Light to medium body. Moderate to soft carbonation. Oily to watery texture. Notes of orange pulp, citric zest, grapefruit & raspberry in the middle. Sweet dry finish. Fruity aftertaste. Easy drinkable & suggested for a nice beer session.

Bought in a bottle, poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Warm, gold with a touch of red. Hardly any bubbles rising, fair bit of a head from my lack of pouring prowess.

Smell: Smells okay, similar to lager but a bit nicer.

Taste: The starting point is similar to lager, but it is a deeper perhaps nuttier taste.

Feel: Feels wet. Nothing wrong with this one.

Very nice and it goes down very easily.
