look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

Pint, cask conditioned. A: Initial haze cleared,
bronze colour, clear, one finger head, decent
retention, some lacing. S: Initial citrus gave way
to strong diacetyl. T: Zesty citrus, notes of earth
from the fuggles, didn’t over do the bitterness,
fairly subtle. M: Smooth, light bodied, moderate
carbonation. O: Billed as an ale with eight English
hops but didn’t seem overly hoppy. A solid pale
ale/bitter rather than a top class one.

Brewed in conjunction with Hardknott Brewery in Cumbria. I had just a third of a pint as part of the recent Wetherspoons festival. A light gold (not amber as billed) coloured beer with a standard 'soons head leaving some lacing. It had a very pleasant creamy cereal and herbal hop nose. After a an earthy, bscuity start I was expecting a big hop punch, but instead there was moderate bitterness and a dry finish. I don't see why a brewer would use eight different kinds of hops (wherever they come from) if he didn't intend to create a very hoppy beer. The result here is that the hop profile seems extremely generic.
