3.33/5  rDev -8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

500ml bottle bought from a local Spar..

Poured a light golden colour... white head poured quite small then faded quickly to very light layer. Fair amount of continuous carbonation drifts to the surface... very little lacing...

Aroma - Biscuity malt sweetness, light spicy fruits (oranges, apples, some lemons), grassy, light floral honey, some sea saltiness, herbal / vegetal notes, hight peppery hops...

Taste - Quite strong peppery hops, light fruity sweetness (apricots, lemons, pears), some light sickly sweetcorn notes, salty, some creamy vanilla hints, light almond / marzipan nuttiness, some honey notes, decent biscuit maltiness..

Feel - Quite sharp initially then becomes more rounded as you drink... light bodied... pretty drinkable but a little boring..

Overall - An OK pale ale... nothing special.

Bottle. Poured a pure gold colour with a thin head. The aroma has a hint of honey. Plenty of fruit and and some hops with a touch of a bitter taste. It has the typical Thwaites profile, and in spite of the low ABV a lot of flavour. A good beer from a good brewery.

4.4/5  rDev +21.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Had a proper pint on cask at the Collingwood Arms in Jesmond (Newcastle upon Tyne)

Appearance: Hazy, straw-colored brew with a fluffy head (helped out by the sparkler). Some decent retention and lacing for a cask ale.

Aroma: Floral hoppiness with some sweet malt undertones. Some yeastiness gives the aroma of fermenting bread.

Taste: Wasn't expecting the amount of hops I was getting, some American citrus character interplays well with the floral / earthy English hops. Solid sweet maltiness as well fades into a bitter finish. Fruitiness from the yeast is present in apple / pear like undertones that adds complexity to the brew.

Mouthfeel: Medium - light body, proper cask carbonation / temperature. Creamy consistency.

Drinkability: Another solid English bitter that goes down smooth and almost as easily as water. I'll need to return to Collingwood tonight for another pint or two.
