3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Clear golden colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, head. Somewhat strange aroma, herbal hoppy, green pepper. Taste is dry, herbal hoppy, hints of mixed pickles, especially pickled green and red pepper, a general peppery touch, chillies, elderflower. I’m not sure if everthing’s OK with this.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle bb 23/10/13. Pours a cloudy orange colour with no head - looks pretty lifeless. Aroma is minimal, very light malt, a touch of yeast and some pineapple. Light body, watery with just a touch of carbonation. There’s some grapes, a little green apple, a little elderflower a touch of tropical fruits and a bit of yeast present. But its very thin, and lifeless. Not good.
