3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Beermoth, Manchester. Hazy, pale amber. Loads of lumps. Thin, sticky, white head. Big, piny, resinous, orange zest hop. Some rubbery fustiness. Background of minty herb. Taste is caramel sweet, for a moment, then orange zest bitter. Some dryness in there, too. Full, slightly greasy palate. Finishes long, earthy bitter. Good gear. Love that aroma.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
THANKS! More than half of a 355 ml. bottle. Orange, creamy white head. Nose is lots of sweetish caramel orange hops (I know that there are actual oranges in this but you could get the same profile with hops & this could just as well be hops – seems bit of a waste, same goes for the taste), there is some light grass bitterness going on as well. Taste is caramel mixed with light grass & same orange / hop thing, sweet caramel oranges with light bitterness in the back, touch dry yeast, floral, biscuit,… Lightly malty body. Nice but should have been more outspoken, considering the ingredients, bottle is gorgeous as with all Almanac beers.

Bottle - Leafy pine and grapefruit. Hazy orange with a decent beige head. Bitter sweet pine and orange and a long bitter finish. Dry woody finish. I don’t get the sweetness of oranges, maybe an old bottle?
