Pours a clear gold colour with mild haze. Lovely, sticky dense head, off-white with marvellous cradle of lace. Fantastic looking pale.

Smells hoppy and fresh. Strong honeyed-oat character on the nose upfront and then playful citric notes at the back, with a touch of peach and apricot; tangy and nice. Very light, too, but enjoyable pale smell.

Taste is pleasant and fresh. Pretty caramelly upfront and then plenty of hops make their presence known quickly. Light bitterness, citric and piney and then a little astringency on the back. Woody as well, though and not unpleasant. Still quite bitter for a pale on the aftertaste. It lingers. I can see people really enjoying this but not sure about the 'gateway' factor for this drop.

Decent mouthfeel, good body and fairly dry towards back. Nice.

A nice pale. Drinkable, but also complex and interesting. Well made.

Pours amber with a small head.
Nose shows toffee and sweet malt, cooked vegetables and meaty notes.
Somewhat similar flavours but a bit cleaner. Still very sweet but none of the weird meaty notes.

Sensational looking and smelling beer, very hoppy from the can open. Lychee and mango.
Taste is a little unbalanced tho and a hollow mid palate. Not as hoppy and or fruity as the smaell would suggest. Somewhat harsh aftertaste
Solid effort, in a crowded market, tho.
