Tasted this beer by half-pint at my local Wetherspoon in the East End London on 5 June 05.

Appearance: little bit hazy, dark-straw colour, with very sparse head and very low carbonation. Looking just o.k.
Smell: faint hint of citrusy hops and some floral scent as well. Overall the nose is overly restrained, or perhaps this is due to its lack of freshness?
Taste & Mouthfeel: using First Gold hops, quite light, elderflowery hoppy flavour dominates along with lightly sweetish, pale ale malts on palate; the flavour gradually intensifies to a round mouthfeel and surprisingly crisp and medium-dry bitterness in the throat. The aftertaste is not extremely lingering but the residual flavour on palate is quite intensive and refreshing.
Drinkability: it's a very nice, quaffable session beer. It could be even better when served fresher!
