3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pale amber with a white head. Aroma of oranges, peach and a little pine. Taste is much more grapefruity, with hay, peach and oranges. Quite dry at the end with firm bitterness. The hops don’t shine quite as much as they ought in the aroma, but it’s pretty good.

Pours hazy with a golden-brass color and a soft head that laces and dissipates quickly. Hop aroma is citrus with slight sweet malt notes. Has a dry bitter finish, and the alcohol is fairly masked.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle Beerdock Crewe. Caramel and biscuity malt dominate this red ale. Hops are subtle, there’s a little citrus and bitterness late on. There’s an unusual adhesive like aroma at times. Maybe not quite the finished article.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared with my wife. Medium hold, lasting, lacy white head. Intriguing hop profile, floral and piney with some fruity sweetness. Only modest bitterness, but the hops here are delicate and interesting. I liked this more than I thought I would.
