500ml bottle from Wanstead Tap at the Wanstead Farmer’s Market. A much gentler orange taste than I was expecting. If anything, was almost like a dash of marmalade has been swirled through a good IPA. Certainly a different beer - one for sipping rather than gulping - and enjoyable for that.

Dark orange pour. Tastes like it has been brewed with orange peel. I know what oranges taste like before anyone has a pop at me for claiming taste memory of exotic fruits. Ya Bish.

Thanks to Keen Massey for this one. Very hazy orange - amber beer, good off white head. Light orange on the nose. Smooth palate, a little dry. Mild carbonation. Orange marmalade and fresh orange citric hops. A little cream in the malt base. Semi dry finish with orange bitterness and mild minerals. Different!

Hoppy nose with the orange coming through clearly. Pours, well, orange. Flavour is bitter from the hops but sweetened by the orange in a fair balance. Finish is long and dry. Very nice.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, picked up from ’Jacks’ Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon consumed at home Sunday 21.10.12 Pours hazy orange/gold. I enjoy the Art Brew Hip Hop range but I’m not quite as struck on the others (this included) Interestingly I looked at my ratings the other day for Art Brew and I really hadn’t realised but it was very clear that the Hip Hop range (all of them) were my top rated Art Brew beers. This beer was too sweet, was a bit flat and whilst a little orangey, had little else going for it. There is a little bitterness but it just doesn’t do much for me at all. A6 A3 T5 P3 Ov11 2.8

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gravity dispense at the Prince of Wales, Farnborough BF - 12/10/12. Listed @6.4% ABV.
Slightly hazy golden colour with a thin white head that soon dissipates.
Orange zest on the nose, hops, a little booze.
Tastes of boozy orange, like Cointreau light!
Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a bitter finish.
Intersting and drinkable but a little one dimensional, a pint would have been too much! Unless you like boozy orange/Conitreau a lot !

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gravity @ The Bree Louise. The pour’s a amber orange color with a small white head. The nose is marmalade, orange, spice rack, and bizzare cheap mint candy. The taste is herbal hops, sweet orange syrup (something like a fanta reduction), hints of toothpaste. A bit sweet, strange. Incongruous flavors. Overall, a strange one. Art Brew are capable of good stuff, they’re also a bit uneven at times. Maybe this wasn’t on great form?
