16oz glass at Beer Revolution YEG Oliver Square. A brew which is still being made, it would seem.

This beer appears a clear, bright medium copper amber colour, with one zaftig finger of puffy, finely foamy, and somewhat creamy off-white head, which leaves some dissolving frozen windshield lace around the glass as it genially recedes.

It smells of grainy and biscuity pale malt, some prominent hard water flintiness, subtle pome and citrus peel notes, and some testy leafy, herbal, and estery floral green hop bitters. The taste is bready and doughy pale malt, a further cereal graininess, apple skins and puppy grins (n.b. no actual dogs are involved in this offering, to my knowledge), wet rocks, and more earthy, weedy, and floral verdant hoppiness.

The carbonation is adequate in its structurally supportive frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and generally smooth, with nothing else to really recommend it by. It finishes trending dry, the biscuity malt essence aiding and abetting the lingering noble hops in the cause.

Overall, this is a rather pleasant and engaging version of the style - not too light, biscuity, and level in its bitterness. Not that I'm particularly surprised, as this London town brewery has a habit of nailing the classics.

Brewed in conjunction with Hardknott Brewery in Cumbria. I had just a third of a pint as part of the recent Wetherspoons festival. A light gold (not amber as billed) coloured beer with a standard 'soons head leaving some lacing. It had a very pleasant creamy cereal and herbal hop nose. After a an earthy, bscuity start I was expecting a big hop punch, but instead there was moderate bitterness and a dry finish. I don't see why a brewer would use eight different kinds of hops (wherever they come from) if he didn't intend to create a very hoppy beer. The result here is that the hop profile seems extremely generic.

Pint, cask conditioned.

A: Initial haze cleared, bronze colour, clear, one finger head, decent
retention, some lacing.

S: Initial citrus gave way
to strong diacetyl.

T: Zesty citrus, notes of earth
from the fuggles, didn’t over do the bitterness,
fairly subtle.

M: Smooth, light bodied, moderate

O: Billed as an ale with eight English
hops but didn’t seem overly hoppy. A solid pale
ale/bitter rather than a top class one.
