3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance alone makes me want to taste it. Aroma is hard to explain...I have all these images of rustic vegetable gardens and fields. Trying to pull a word from my brain and all I get is "Round". Taste is equally perplexing and enjoyable. This ale is smooth and relaxing while at the same time citrus and lively. Baird out did their selves with this one.

Bottle. Hazy amber with a modest white head. Aroma is all about mandarins in layers: boiled, caramelised peel, flowers, flesh, marmalade. A malty bread underneath it. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Just sweet and malty enough to let the array of citrus flavours play. Really invites you in. Dry and seemingly a little woody (pine, cedar, cassia?) at the end. Very good.

Bottle from Cellarbrations Sandy Bay 251115. Looks murky and hazy in the glass. Aroma is a bit light on however the flavour is okay. Not the best Baird beer that I have had. It’s okay though.

Gold with white head. Slightly bitter and dry. Like an American pale ale, but less hoppy.

On tap at Naka-Meguro taproom in January. Served in a half pint glass. Golden yellow color with a huge soapy head. Nice lacing. Big mikan aroma with yeast on the nose as well. Yeast and mikan taste are balanced well with tastes of lemon zest, grapefruit pith and a slight cinnamon presence as well. Medium carbonation with a medium to light body. Nice dry, crisp finish. Nice balance between the mikan and hops.

Keg at Naka Meguro. Smells great, nice orange, bit of lemon too, malty, floral. Taste is good too, less citrus, bit of sweetness, light caramel. Nice refreshing bitterness at finish then orange comes.
