BrianGood02 Feb 2007 Astringent hop flavour. There was a slight citrus bite in the finish.
IanGood02 Feb 2007 Gold colour with thin white head. Fragrant, flowery hop aroma. Bit of yeast on the aroma. Does lack a bit of body. I quite like the citrus drying hop finish. Some tangerine and I like the finish, just lacks a bit of malt structure in the mouth.
