This has an amazing head as it bursts out of the bottle - I didn't think it was all going to fit in the pint glass! Full marks to the frothy white head that clings to the glass with substantial lacing. It's a lovely crystal clear light golden colour and smells so fresh, like a summer beer garden ale. Unfortunately it was a typical Northern summer day - cold and cloudy so I drank this in front of the TV watching the Hungarian GP qualifying!
I did have a little chuckle when I tasted this. It's not for the faint-hearted or regular IPA drinkers - this is Pale Ale Yorkshire style! It has a massive hoppy aftertaste that is a bit metallic at first but is unnoticeable after a few sips. I thought there was a very very slight suggestion of citrus which takes the edge off the bitterness of the hops. The aroma is stated as blackcurrant but unfortunately I didn't get any hint of that.
