Hazy gold beer, good frothy white head. Palate is airy and dry. Hops are a little spicy with mild lemon and dry grapefruit pith. Dry finish with a medium bitter linger. Decent.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ The Train Tasting Pt II. The pour’s gold with a small head. The nose has notes of elderflower. Some weird bell pepper. Stewed green veggies. The taste is grassy hop. Green biomass. DMS I assume. Light body, fine carbonation. Others seemed to think the beer was OK, so I might be crazy.

Bottle during the High Speed Tasting Pt. II on the train back to London after the Black Country Bus Tour. I snagged this one from Cotteridge Wines. Pours lightly cloudy yellow with a creamy, white head. Nose of hay and minerals. Light sweet flavor with dry hay, lemon rind and mellow biscuits. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Dry finish with more mild lemon and flinty minerals. So so.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; hazy yellow pour with foam white head, slight hop aroma & washing up liquid the citrus kind, not much hop in the taste maybe past it’s best, quite refreshing with heavy carbonation.

500ml bottle Cotteridge Wines B30. A disappointment. Little flavour. The only sensation was of the sensation in the mouth of CO2.
