330 ml bottle, B and M stores, Bristol - Pours clear copper with medium white foamy head. Medium carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma - very light citrus notes. Taste - light citrus feel, crisp light bitter finish, metallic feel as well. Should have a lot stronger hop feel for the hops stated. Disappointing for hop heads.

Appearance - Hazy golden amber colouration with a skinny lace head and lightly streaming CO2 comprised of tiny almost invisible bubbles.

Smell - Floral lemon blossom and pine. This beer boasts little malt aroma in the nose at the outset however as the beer slowly rises above its recommended serving temp this does increase.

Taste - Very good floral indeed almost leafy taste from this beer plenty of pine and citrus but they're well balanced and as a result the beer has a simple enough flavour profile but it works well and makes it a pleasure to drink.

MF - Light bodied due to the ting bubbles that also provide a tiny tingle. There is also mild linger providing a dry finish.

Overall - A well balanced beer with a much better taste and mouth feel than the smell or appearance would have you expect.

330ml bottle, 5.3% ABV, from something called the Crafty Dan Micro Brewery, an apparent sub-brand of Daniel Thwaites. The Triple C in the name is a subset of the 'Big C' hops of Pacific NW renown.

This beer pours a mostly clear, medium copper amber hue, with three fingers of puffy, frothy, and rocky eggshell white head, which leaves some splendid tightly webbed lace around the glass as it slowly abates.

It smells of sharply bitter orange, lemon, and grapefruit rind, pine resin, grainy, crackery pale malt, and further floral, slightly perfumed hop notes. The taste is rather acrid, and muddled citrus pith - hard to pick out a specific fruit's, um, 'essence' here - biscuity, somewhat doughy pale malt, a touch of caramel sweetness, a particular lemon herbal character, and more piney, leafy, and floral hops.

The carbonation is quite sprightly, and peppy in its tight frothiness, the body a pleasant enough medium weight, and generally smooth, those heady hops knowing what's good for them around here. It finishes still quite dry, the hops and biscuity malt colluding to the last drop.

Well, there certainly is an English pale ale underneath all that Yankee hop furor, and a good one at that, as its merits come bleeding through the big C triad of titular lore. When does an EPA cross the threshold into American (I)PA territory? Right about here.

Pours rather pale and golden, lwo head, thin lacing.
Smell is surprisingly malty (as opposed to the contents listed on the label), with lots of biscuits, with the citrus hops still present, but not so strong.
The taste is caramel biscuity for two-three seconds, then gets bombarded with citrus fruit from the hops, bitter also. Grapefruit mainly, from start to finish, with herbal notes developing towards the end (pine and earthy/leafy hops). More than mild bitter finish.
Bitterness lingers in the aftertaste, so the maltiness is felt lesser and lesser. Buttery feel, a bit more than mild carbonation, decent mouthfeel.
Not a lot of complexity from the hops, with an aggressive bitterness covering the nice English malt backbone. It does deliver the "triple C", but there's more tweaking to be done.
