3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the brewery. Deep amber in colour, with a slight off-white head and trace of carbonation. Spicy malt aroma with some caramel, but also sharp lime and floral hops. Full bodied, with a yeasty, continental edge, marmalade and stone fruits, some candy sugar sweetness and a lingering, dryish finish. A lot going on and enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg at Barley Mow, Bristol. Pours a hazy amber gold. Funky sweaty citrus and tropical fruit, big and pungent (slightly cheesy) fruity yeast getting in there too. Dank tropical fruit and pungent yeast notes upon tasting, more peach and some definite NZ white wine fruity dryness. Lingering peaches and funky mango, very vinous and dry. Challenging but interesting gear, very pungent and fairly messy flavours at work, enjoyable though.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Grape n Grind. Lemonadey, fresh nose with gentle spruce and caramelised orange zest. Pours a slightly hazy orangey amber with a medium beige head. The flavour is interesting - thickly complex with forest floor, candy and dirty sock notes freshened by lots or orange citrus and finishing with some lemon curd biscuit and the tiniest hint of maraschino cherry. Very nice, but not a lot of the nelson sauvin hop coming through.
