Can: Poured a clear bright golden color ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light dry citrusy hops with some light cereal notes is refreshing. Taste is a nice mix of dry hops notes with light citrusy notes, some dry cereal notes with a floral finish. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Easy drinking golden ale with right amount of character.

Great session beer. Big fruity presence with citrus, melon and stone fruits. This pale ale is juicy as hell and not overly bitter. It has sting though. Good stuff

From a can, pours a hazey pale amber colour with a good thick creamy white head that holds well. Aroma sweet, citrus, pine, tropical. Taste citrus, mango, pine, tangerine, malt. Not to bad very crushable.

Pale straw. Slight haze. Thin head.
Sweet citrus hop aroma.
Flowery and tropical hops rejecting the aroma. Buttery. Light bitterness.
A smooth and refreshing APA

Pours hazy straw amber into a tulip glass from a can. The two finger high head is thick, creamy and frothy white with great silky bubbles that cling to the glass long after diminishing. Retention is good, and lingering.

The nose is all sweet tropical; mango, grapefruit, lychee and some clementine. There's a brilliant freshness about the aroma; a heady scent of fruit, pine, hops, and floral leaves all blended into one. The flavour follows the nose almost perfectly with an immediate bittersweet tropical response on the sip, very mango-fresh, grapefuit rich and juicy. The pine and floral grass meanders in beautifully after the fruit, cleansing the palate and giving a wonderfully forest-fresh flavour, then the sweet, light malts cascade in before the mountain of hops. The aftertaste is an amalgamation of every flavour each jostling for position, and lingering far after the swallow.

It feels light-medium bodied leaning more into the full side of things with an oily texture. The beer feels smooth and heavy yet very easy drinking with minimal carbonation.

This is a great find, and I was wonderfully surprised to learn this was from a UK brewery. Beer52 really has some excellent taste.
