Draft pint at Bricklayers Arms in Shoreditch. Solid pale ale. Nothing extraordinary, but very drinkable.

Strong hoppy flavours. Refreshing taste. Fairly bitter. Hard to detect sweetness.

A: Light copper, tea colour with a fair amount of fine bubbled carbonation, and 3 fingers of light beige head.


S: Caramel, biscuit, bread, cracker. Light fruitiness.


T: Pears, peaches, hard water, a hit of iron near the end, little bitterness.


M: Medium body, medium low peppery carbonation.


O: Well crafted brew, got at Villa Market, Bangkok. Great taste. Still fresh after the long voyage from Cornwall.

Pours like a nice golden ale, but seriously lacking aroma and a nice finish. Would be a great lawnmower beer, but past that it's not for me.

Served cold into pint glass from 500ml bottle.

A) Pours a lightish amber colour with a thin white head that dissipates quickly to a film.

S) Served cold so not getting the full nose. The wheat in the brew is evident, unfortunately (in my opinion). As it warms up a bit, the fragrant hops come more to the fore.

T) Good. Lightish biscuity malts come first. Then a fair hit of fragrant hops; I am surprised that this beer is so popular, as this kind of fragrant hop-forward taste is actually fairly rare in popular cask ales in England. Then a moderately lingering slightly dull bitter after taste, which makes you want to take another mouthful.

M) Fine. Carbonation and consistency are right for the style.

O) A great beer from the bottle; had it on cask recently (Tunnels Beach bar, Ilfracombe) and that adds a lovely slightly sour aftertaste due to the conditioning to an already distinctive beer. Get some.

Tawny color, faint haze, thin cap of fine bubbles that really lasted. Solid sheds of lace on the glass. Balanced and mild aroma, a bit of earthiness and English malt character. Same in the flavor, along with mild bitterness and slight dryness. Medium bodied, low carbonation, decent texture. Overall, an enjoyable pint.
