Tried by a half-pint at the Capitol, a JDW pub in Forest Hill, SE London.

A: pours a pale yellow-ish straw colour, with light white fluffy head and low carbonation.
S: quite honey-ish, even juicy, in terms of the pale malts, while a deeply floral and citric scent of First Gold hops - clean, simple, yet enticing.
T: mildly bitter-sweet pale malts and dried grass-iness with a touch of salt are balanced elegantly with lightly spicy & floral hops, leaving a slightly chewy bitterness lingering and deepening in the end, while the malt aroma never disappears.
M&D: the mouthfeel, being light, is somehow slightly less fizzy than is desirable; overall this beer tastes slightly like a Czech pilsner with the similar performance of juicy malts, added with an impressive depth of bitterness that is an absolutely classic character of an English Bitter. A lovely and more-ish drink throughout!

Gravity halfpint at the London Drinker festival.

A: Clear straw body under a creamy cap of ultra-fine white foam. Great retention, delicate lace. Nice.

S: Delicate aroma of pale, biscuity malt, some floral hops, and prominent fruitiness - lots of apple. Nice, light, and enticing.

T: A little sweeter than the nose, with biscuity malt and sweet fruitiness overwhelming the hops. It's tasty, but the finish is definitely a bit heavy with the sweetness, which detracts from its refreshing potential.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation. Unremarkable.

O: Interesting little bitter, but not one that I'd call memorable.

Cheers!

A: Transparent orange with a touch of gold, soapy little head, major sustained lacing.
S: Apricot lager
T: Also pretty much an apricot lager, mild amberness, nice amount of mild bitterness, while the idea is very nice, it's somehow a mediocre delivery. I do like the elements but it's nearly completely flat and somehow plain.
O: Ok, very easy going down, manages to be simultaneously interesting and characterless.
