Decent creamy white head. Subtle citrus aroma. Hazy amber pour. Pretty nice but after the Heady Top beer itís hard to taste the bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (gift from Neko-chan). Very strong and pleasant hop, thick pine notes, and yeast in the nose. Cloudy orange-amber with a full one-inch rocky head. Very much hop dominant but with a strong malt backbone. Great smooth hoppy aftertaste. Medium-full body, thick and satisfying. Tastes like itís stronger than 6%. Good stuff.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
not bad, nice mixture of earthy and fruity hops, plenty of biscuitty malt and english yeast esters. loose irregular and organic looking head over a murky copper beer. a bit homebrewy - nice components but a bit muddy and unclear in the palate.

330 ml bottle 6%. Pours slighly cloudy golden with decent cream coloured head. Good lacing. Aroma of pinenuts, alcohol, floral hops, malt and faint yeast and dust. Full flavour, crisp, fruity which turns bitter. Excellent balance and pleasant acidity. Very easy to drink and goes well with Chinese chicken fried rice. Well done!
