3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
2012 version on tap. Soft honied fig nose. Body is envious and smooth. Soft, malty bready flavour with some floral and grass hop flavours to finish. A bit cloying and to be honest, a bit boring for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Med golden color. Slightly butter floral nose. Subtle, but floral character is very defined. Smooth up front fruitiness with bready hops hitting the back of the throat. A bit too hoppy for the style perhaps, but never the less highly enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Fruity, creamy aroma. Light but rather fragrant. Very fruity, citrus hoppy flavor. Decent maltiness, buttery and nice. Good hop burn. Bitter, hoppy, clean finish. Basically fits the traditional style but with much more hops than most. Enjoyable.
