3.13/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Slightly hazy Amber colour, thin slightly textured head which lingers and clings to the glass

Very slight smell of citrus, not much in the way of smell, very delicate

Slight initial sweetness, Biscuity malts, slight grassiness then a mild hop bitterness on the finish which remains at the back of the mouth for some time. A lighter ale, not a very strong taste but very pleasant.

Very light carbonation, medium body but feels slightly heavier than I initially expected.

Great session beer - a lighter taste which suits drinking in a larger quantity. Perhaps not particularly distinctive, it does have a more delicate taste but goes down easy.

Quite interesting. Not quite an "egg fart" aroma, but theirs definitely hints of some sort of eggy sulfuric thingy happening in their. Very dry and bitter on the tongue, Orval-ish yeastyness and dryness. Salty, cosmetic, with some bitter lemon in the finish. Not sure if a like ti all that much, but its unique and fairly tasty.

500ml Brown bottle, well in date, poured into an English Pint Sleeved glass.

Very pale, almost Lager looking, the small white head adds to the illusion.

A mild wiff of citrus fruits hit the nose, grapefruit more than the sour lemons and lime fruits. Hops in the mix too.

The grapefruit in the aroma comes through into the taste as do the hops. Nothing strong or outstanding in the flavour stakes though.

A pleasant if unassuming Pale Ale, the hop and citrus fruit contents rule the brew without really making a statement, an average beer with an average score from me.

3.43/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A lemon pastille clear coloured body with splattering of tiny white bubbles for head

Quite a sweet smell, aromas sherbet lemons and melon

A nice bitter belt to the tongue, citrus fruit start, not much of the sweetness on the nose

It is a great mouthfeel, easy drinking session beer with great carbonation.

A very good bottled bitter

Also known as "WOPPA" (according to the beer label), this bottle has no BB date available, served cool in a straight imperial pint glass.

A: pours a rather slightly hazy, dark yellow body with orange hues; the beer head comes very weak even after a force-pour, and the carbonation is kept at the minimum.
S: quite assertive and enticing in floral+citric hoppiness (Northdown hops?) and sweet pale malts with a pungent edge of boiled lotus roots. Pretty simple in composition, but the hoppy edge does not go unnoticed.
T: the high level of soothingly spritzy, spicy- and sour-bitter zesty-bitterness of citric hops dominates from the beginning, gradually softening a bit to allow more aromatic malts and semi-fermented-tea-ish hops to come through; leading towards a semi-dry, long finish underlined by a consistent depth of assertive bitterness as in bitter-lemon.
M&D: light-bodied with an incredibly soothing mouthfeel full of microscopic fizziness, this bitter pale ale tastes really good, and I should think the cask version would be even more tasty. Really looking forward to trying the cask version!
