3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Golden with a white foam. Aromas are biscuit, grain and caramel with mixed tropical fruit and earthy apple. A bit fusty with hints of white grape. Flavours are sweet grain and brown sugar with bready yeast. Restrained tropical fruit with woody pine and spices. Toasted with some resinous citrus bite on the finish. It grew on me.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear copper, small off-white head that dissipates leaving very little lacing. Aroma is mild, citric and floral. Strong citrus flavours, particularly grapefruit, some tropical fruit, more malt than expected, a little toffee and a touch earthy, but still pretty clean. Floral notes and some pine. A little sweetness leads to a strong bitter finish. Very nice.
