3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
