3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle from Brewdog (£5):
Citrus and pine malts and is quickly overtaken by a strong floral hop aroma, some sweet malts and a sort of perfume like smell. There is also some alcohol right at the end.
Deep, honey amber colour with a two cm bubbly head that gradually reduces in size. The beer is clear too.
Hops & a combination of pine and floral ones with some soft caramel malts and various fruits. Definitely a fruity one with some orange and citrus along with some apricot and various berries plus some toffee.
Lively carbonation and a medium body with a strong alcohol lacing at first before settling down some. There is a crisp, dry finish that hints at bitterness too.
Pretty nice beer and one that went down well without being an outstanding beer. Initially the floral notes and the alcohol seemed too strong but both of these quickly died down as the beer settled and I got further down the glass.

Ambrata. Evidente sentore di agrumi. Astringente e sbilanciata. Fastidioso e persistente amaro finale

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Butelka w jakiejs knajpce. Aromaty dosc delikatne ale bardzo fajne, sa cytrusy i zywice sosnowe, ale na pierwszym planie zbozowosc, jakies slodkie przyrawy (az szukalem, czy czegos w browarze nie dosypali, wpadal mi do glowy kardamon), nieco karmelu... W smaku dosc pasujace do tego, slodkie, dosc pelne, z zauwazalna i dosc dluga, nieco przyprawowa goryczka. Fajne

Bottle at Gollem. Pours dark amber, good and steady, creamy white head. Smell is ambermalts, with a bitter,hoppy touch and a sweet sidenote. Taste is Caramel malty (Very) and has a full-bodied bitterness next to it. Kind of sweet touch reminds of added sugar.
Ok beer, expected a bit more though

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from The Beerhive. Hazy amber body with a thick off-white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of caramel, orange and lime. Flavour of blood orange, grapefruit brown bread and honey. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. A delicious beer - probably an IPA rather than an APA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml. bottle sampled @ Gollem. Dark amber, very stable, one & a half or so finger off-white head. Nose is full grain bread mixed with malt, tad malt sweetish with pine resin & bitter grapefruit peel,… Taste is full grain, some sweetish caramel malt mixed dried mandarin & grapefruit peel + some pine resin, orange,… Med. malty body. Pleasant, not overly expressive & a bit too malt forward for what is is but drinks nicely still. Easy & enjoyable beer.
