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.

Watery and pretty tasteless beer.

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.

330ml bottle

A- Light copper colour, two fingers, nicely persistent head that also leaves quite good amounts of lacing

S- Fresh but very delicate herbal/grassy aroma, with quite a nice amount of fruity notes showing up (mainly citric - expecially orange and grapefruit, but also peach)

T- Delicate body with a very light malt presence (flavour-wise), just a slight note of caramel. A refreshing grassy and flowery feel pervades the whole tasting experience, as the smell suggested. Fruity (peach, pear) and citric notes on the back of the tongue and in the aftertaste with a slightly juicy feel to them. Moderate and really delicate bitterness given the nice amount of hop flavours, but still enough to provide for a refreshing, thirst-quenching finish

M- Light in body, medium carbonation. Nice but still smooth crispness on the palate, more on the juicy side on the tongue

O- Highly enjoyable, refreshing ale. Delicate and perfectly balanced
