3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
5th November 2013
Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Hazy amber beer with a small bubbly pale cream head. Palate is crispy and semi dry. Slightly bitter toffee malt. Good marmalade and peel bitterness. Touches of fresh orange and lactose. Semi dry finish with a carbonated nip. Peel bitter linger.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared at Bruce’s. It pours hazy deep amber with a small white head. The nose is fresh pine, stewed orange, juicy, Irn Bru, bubblegum, varnish and sweet permanent marker pen. The taste is bitter-sweet, earthy, varnish, resin, orange and bread with a very dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Smells pretty nice, but it is a touch too dry and earthy in my opinion. Decent nonetheless.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle cheers to Paul. Hazy amber with a few white bubbles on top. Huge pine on this one with caramel, biscuit and light vanilla underneath it all. Taste shows orange, more pine, blood orange almost, earthy and zesty. Not bad
