355 ml can, Tesco's, Bristol - Pours clear amber with a medium white foamy head. Nice lacing. Medium carbonation. Aroma - citrus forefront - grapefruit/mandarin. Taste - Sweet, malty front, light citrus - grapefruit/orange leading to a light bitter finish with a little alcoholic warmth. Citrus in aroma but more malty in mouthfeel. Good hybrid beer for English bitter drinkers to get into American hops.

355ml bottle poured into a pint glass.

Mildly hazed deep golden amber hue, the pour generates one and a half finger of creamy white head that stands with good retention before slowly subsiding to an eternal bubble sheet atop along with some lacing patch and spot.

Pretty mild and faint aroma of floral hop, bready malt, grain, sweet caramel, subtle spice, a bit earthy, slight lime, and light fruity citrus.

Malt dwells at a bottom canvas of the flavor structure with notes of bread, husky grain, caramel, some sweet, and toasted biscuit while hop comes into play shortly thereafter with its subtle spice, citrus, lime, earthy, and persistent bitterness.

Medium body with moderate carbonation to yield semi-smooth mouthfeel through the palate, the feeling is a bit crisp with some lively touch and dry finish. This one is not that good and not that bad. At least, it still has some decent hop profile.
