3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 330ml bottle on 9/10/2015. Pours a cloudy dark apricot with abiggish head. Has a lovely floral, fruity aroma with some honey in the mix. In the mouth, it’s very sweet, with masses of orange, countered by a bit of lemon zestiness, and spice. There’s some biscuity malt, and some relatively firm hops. Medium bodied with fairly lively carbonation. Straight forward but very enjoyable. Under-rated on here imo.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Brew Dog on-line. Hazy orange pour with a thin white head. Fragrant hop, fruits, spice and wood notes in the beak. Lively carbonation. Flavour was bready malts, cararmel, orange; hoppage was pretty lifeless. Disappointingly average IPA.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ Chriso’s pre-GBBF Shindig. The pour’s light amber with a small head. The aroma’s quite sweet. Toasted brown bread slathered in honey. Marzipan and orange marmalade. Cantaloupe fruit leather. The taste is similar. Cantaloupe, marmalade. Nutty toasted malt notes. Somewhat overcarbed. Rough compost on the finish. Medium body, a bit knackered. Overall, this has probably seen better days. Still, there’s a good beer in here.
