Bottle from Drinkmonger. Great aroma on pouring, less impressive after. Hoppy, earthy, slight copper, thin mouthfeel, sour citrus. "Serviceable"

Medium offwhite head. Hazy amber body. Tropical fruit and gooseberry aroma with catty pineapple and grass notes. Dryish grassy grape and gooseberry taste with pineapple notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish pineapple and gooseberry aftertaste with spicy catty notes. Nice, but a bit too much pineapple and cat pee. (0.5l bottle, from House of Trembling Madness, York.)

50 cl. bottle sampled @ RBESG 2013. Thx! to chriso & Boudicca. Lovely label. Murky orange with creamy white bubbles on the sides. Nose is slight medicinal hops, floral, bitter spices & herbal. Taste is sweet grapefruit, thick yeast, bitter spices, some medicinal herbs, bitter with sweet caramel. Body is creamy with yeast. Freestyle Fridays – beers brewed with left-over ingredients from the week – seems like they had both EU & USA hops lying around. Nice beer.
