3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Swing-top half growler from Party Source, filled about 4 hours ago. Labeled as a "blood orange pilsener". Clear orange copper color. Good thin white head. Nice spread of dotty lace. Smooth, very light carbonation. Lightly dry texture. Very easy drinking. Nice mild tart taste, pretty refreshing. I dig the blood orange flavor, kind of some tart raspberry notes to it. Tasty, drinkable, refreshing stuff.

Fra fat på Craft Beer Co, Brixton 4 Nov 12. Mørk gylden. Litt uklar. Litt skum som fester seg til glasset. Litt tung plommearoma. Smaken som aromaen. Bra - men litt kjedelig.

Half-pint served chilled from keg at Craft Beer Co in Brixton, shared with Finn. Apricot coloured body, near-clear. Fragile layer at the surface. Fresh and dried fruity hops to the nose. Fresh apricot fruity taste added by red oranges and by mid-sweet malts beneath. Long-lived bitter finish. Medium bodied. Good last drink at the place (Greater London, 04.11.2012).

Tap @ Fairbar: Very hoppy with balanced fruit beer. Tastes like there used English hops. Where is the taste of the blood orange?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Craft Beer Co. Okay, this one was such a bright, delicious surprise. Blood oranges in a dry, zesty, hoppy beer = YUM. Healthy, vibrant orange body with a medium prickly head. Nose was righteous hops and fruit, and there was a bit of malt sweetness to balance things out in the taste. Oranges weren’t over-assertive, thankfully, and complemented a nicely realized hoppy base quite well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Craft Clerkenwell, Saturday 15th September 2012 Pours amber with a filmy white head, subtle orange and it really isn’t overdone however it is clearly noticeable. Tangy with a prickly light sourness, good beer but still not as good as the Fynes Ales Sanda IPA project with was superb. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.4

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at CBC, London. It pours a clear orange colour with a small white head. Aroma is grains, grass and light citrus. Taste is similar: not much flavour, with grains, grass and some orange zest. Then in body with average carbonation. Honestly, this is almost tasteless.
