4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Plonk. Slightly hazy, glowing golden, frothy white head, grassy, citrusy hops, quite sweet, sugary malt, some doughy yeast evident, full body, strong lingering bitterness. Love this beer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Stale hazel yellow, quickly dissipating tight bubbled white head. Well grated steely mango nose, undercurrent of booze. Real up front wedge of bitterness, decent taught carbonation and avalanche of over subscribed malt. Proper Super Tennants tang here, which likely because I’ve supped too many a tin, leaves me disappointed here. Tinny, lemon rind finish and oily trickle of malty bitter linger.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours golden amber with a short, fluffy white head. Upfront hoppy grapefruit aroma, tropical fruits and a touch of zest. Smells and tastes like an IPA. Plenty of fruity hop flavours, bit of caramel malt and a pretty clean mouthfeel. Just an insanely hoppy lager.

Bottle 33cl from Mondial de la bière. A clear copper beer with medium head. Nose is intense on citrus and grapefruit hops. Aroma is very resin like with lot of grapefruit and citrus, quite bitter too, relative sugar, ok for a strong lager.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is an incredibly hoppy Imperial Pils. There is some great hop flavor hidden under bitterness that is out of balance. The twang that might be expected from the yeast is not conspicuous but rather integrated. The mouthfeel is quite chalky. There is a good bit of complexity lurking and I think this beer would be phenomenal if bitterness was in proportion to hop flavor. Drinking very fresh would help realize the most potential.
