Keg at BD ShepBush. Pinkish amber, fluffy head that slowly dies. Smells of spicy yeast, herbal, sharp hibiscus, some sharp orangey citrus. Tastes moderate sweet pale malt, some sharpness, dry finish. Sharp carb, lightish body. Alright. Touches several bases but doesn’t quite hit any of them.

Keg Euston Tap London 09/07/14. A pink coloured beer with a white head. A nice enough nose with herbal notes. Odd in the mouth though. Yeast isn’t working. Weird and not satsifying.

Tap at the brewery tap opening. Nice hazed orange pink coloured pour with a fine lasting white head. Aroma is delicate floral, light spiced, fresh crisp malts and a little ginger. Flavour is wheat malt, light honeysuckle and hibiscus. Palate is light and refreshing with highish carbonation. Slightly carbonic avid. Everything is nicely balanced. Not that exciting.

On tap at CBC Clapham, 02/07/14. Pours reddy amber with a slightly pink head. Quite a sweet, lightly spicy, yeasty aroma. Light to medium body, medium carbonation - a little thin. Red berries, hint of pepper, orange... Its OK, the body lets it down.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg in the CBC Clapham. Colour is pink reddish like a glass of rose wine, with a thin bubbly head. Nose is fragrant herbal tea, sweet, rose vinous, light grapefruit, candy sugar, Belgian yeast, bread. Taste isn’t as interesting as the nose. Rose vinous, slightly thin, light bitter grapefruit, sweetness via the candy sugar, bit of the herbal tea. Lacking a bit of body but drinkable.
