Poured a 330ml bottle into a 350ml beer glass.

Poured a very nice dark copper, ruby colour with a lovely big fluffy white head. Left some good lacing.

Nose was complex - bready malts aromas, baking/cookie aromas, hops, fruit cake. Very nice.

Palate was complex - lots going on - lots of nice malt flavours - biscuity. Well-rounded. Good hop bitterness. Lovely.

Mouthfeel is great - lots of body and nice tight carbonation.

This is a really great beer - very pleasantly surprised. Amazing flavours and very well balanced.

Highly recommended.

A copper gold colour with steller lacing. Smell has citrus and berry hops on it, aromatic fruity hopiness, some caramel malt also. Taste is a nicely balanced malt start then a lot of the drying citrus grapefruit and lemon hops, dry florals as well. Mouthfeel is crisp, dry and pretty refreshing with moderate carbonation. Quite a tasty PA that is easy to drink but offers somewhat limited depth, works fairly well though and its enjoyable.

Serving type - Cask, Bottle, Keg

A - On all of the above you get a Golden amber colour, which has very little head in the bottle but more so in the Keg and even more so on the Cask.

S - Fruity and slightly sweet especially in Cask.

T - In the Cask especially you get a lot of honey coming through which makes it a very smooth and pleasant drink, I'd go as far as saying it's the best Cask pint I've ever had. In the bottle (chilled) and in the keg you get a lot of dried fruits and a slight grapefruit taste.

M- Cask is just so smooth and feels almost creamy which is a contrast to the keg and bottle because there is a very dry finish.

O - It's certainly a great peer in my opinion and especially in the Cask because it's completely different, however this by no means makes the bottle and keg inferior, just different.
