Tried this beer by half-pint at my EastEnd local when it was one of the occasional guest ales. The beer's strength is 4.1%abv in cask-conditioned version.

Appearance: the colour is very pale-golden-yellowish, with minimum carbonation, with a dense, foamy, but not lasting beerhead. The serving temp. is just right.
Smeel: at the first sniff, there wasn't very noticeable scent of anything... later on, I smelled very mild elderflower scent plus faint/understated pear-like nose.
Taste: oily hoppy, mild lemon-zesty to mild-honeyish on palate...very lively~~
Aftertaste: extremely pleasantly dry, crisp hoppyness mixed with mild bitterness lingering; with long-lasting floral scent in my "throat" as well. I guess this is perhaps what the brewer had in mind when naming this beer "Arizona--dry as a desert".
Overall: it's definitely a very good example of "social drink" for people like me--I can drink two, three pints chatting with friends without feeling bored by either, that is.

Hand pulled pint in the local (Cock Hotel, Wellington, Shropshire) on 6th April 2012. This is a regular guest around Shropshire and I was surprised I hadn't reviewed it before.

Light golden body (almost lager-like) with a thinning white head.

Aroma a mini-mix of mild malty molasses and citrusy hops: they come and go in the breeze interchanging as they go.

The taste is also a mix of the same flavours in the smell: the beer becoming a little more bitter towards the end of each sip.

Looks weaker than it is: good depth of flavours with an alcohol content that suits it.

A pale gold pint was presented to me with a healthy with glorious floral note.

very refreshing if a tad dull .

Biting a little but not enough to get into hop headed IPA land.
A pint I guess all the family could enjoy on a hot day.

Quality drink for sure just not enough oomph.
