3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange amber colour with a thick, puffy white head and plenty of lines of tiny carbonation. It’s a bit of a looker and fills the glass with gorgeousness. The aroma is of orange blossom and zesty tangerine to the fore and the initial thought on flavour is of how much raw alcohol comes out. It might just be because it is the first beer of the day, but it shows out along with those citrus flavours. It is mouth-filling and sherbety with punchy bitterness and that alcoholic heat sits at the top of the chest, warming my throat. I know I’ve highlighted the alcohol and wonder if it is entirely necessary, but this beer is delicious.
