Purchased from the brewery recently, coming in a 330ml slim brown bottle, bottle-conditioned; bottled on 30/08/2013, BB 30/11/2013, served mildly-chilled in a straight imperial pint glass.

A: pours a dark straw-ish hazy colour coming with a very thick and frothy off-white head with superb retention, on top of equally healthy flows of lively carbonation.
S: very light on the malt bill (Munich malts?) while the fruity hops come equally pleasant and not too thick, suggesting citrus fruits or yellow grapefruit peels, lemons, floral hints, etc.
T: on the entry, it is again the grapefruit pulps & peels that dominates the flavour, echoed by a very very light body of malts and an underlying flavour reminiscent of a lightly floral Munich Helles lager. Light flavoured in the finish, mildly zingy comes the bitterness, along with a pleasant dry-ish palate.
M&O: like the other bottle of pale ale from the same brewery I’ve tried, the conditioning in the bottle here is very good indeed, delivering soft fizziness against a light body/mix of flavours, while hiding the alc. only too well. Late hopping seems to be the key to render the overall pleasant, almost “breezy”, feel of hoppiness, while bitterness is capped at a medium-minus level if my palates tell the truth. All in all, quaffable, balanced, more like a British Blonde Ale using aromatic and citric American hop varieties.
