4th June 2012
Cloudy amber beer, good white head. Palate is dry and semi crisp. Very dry wheaty malt, a little creamy. Brandyish alcohol, drying. Maybe a trace of orange hop. Dry finish. Bitter aftertaste. Rough! More than a bit of a feel of industrial lager about this!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Perfumey hop aroma. Smooth feel with low carbonation also quite thick and syrupy. This one has a strong level of bitterness but has a disappointing lack of depth for something in this style with this strength.
