3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Another fine beer from this boutique Bristol brewery. From a 568ml bottle it pours unfiltered deep amber with a moderately sized and lasting off-white head. Nose has heaps of tropical fruits from the NZ hops used on top of a sweet caramel malt bill. Taste is fruity and malty with a refreshing resinous dry finish. Well balanced palate with a medium body and average carbonation.

Cask conditioned at The Harp, Charring Cross, London. Amber with white head. There is a stewed fruity note at the start, slightly sour and nasal, but this improves giving a kiwi fruit type flavour, sharpish. It’s fine.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ La Cervrtica. What a delicious name on a beer! This is a cloudy looking one orange straw colored one. A small islandy and lacing white head safely placed on the top. Soft fruity nose. A bit mild perhaps. Hints of apricots, the really ripe kind and tones of grass. Bitter in the taste. Well actually it has a good amount of malt sweetness to back it up. A nice light oily feeling in the mouth and it’s soft on the prickling carbonation. Sweet peachy, some pine hints here actually and a little bit of dry wood towards the finish. Slightly yeasty ripe tail. Not something I would buy again, but one was definitely OK. 12.08.2014

Very nice pale ale. Great aroma of citrus (lemon, orange, grapefruit) and tropical fruit (mango, ananas) with some malty pinch of caramel. Nice, well-balanced taste. High carbonisation. Well done.
