1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
16th June 2016
Scopey’s grand vertical. Thanks to Dan. Very hazy gold beer, thin pale cream colour head. Palate is light and dry with decent carbonation. Sharp acid start, lemon and vinegar. Some other things going on but who cares. Daydream? More like a burning nightmare! Fuck me this is a stinker. Should keep Paul’s drains clear for a few weeks I suppose.

Draft. Murky golden a,ber color, massive white head. Aroma of peat! Not subtle, but not overwhelming either. Taste is vanilla, straw, and not so subtle peat.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared in East Croydon - many cheers to Danny Boy. Pours hazy gold with a creamy, white head. Smokey aroma with lemony undertones, with just hints of funk. Quite acidic, fairly dry, lemony, with some dry band-AIDS, hard grassy bitterness. Medium bodied with spritzy carbonation. Finishes with rubbery peat, more harsh grassy bitterness, acidic lemon bite, more band-aid. Novel, but not hugely drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy light tan. Weird aroma w lots of peat and lots of brett, and some like, slightly biscuity malts as well. Tart, lots of peat...finishes like mixing Ardbeg and Cuvee Rene Gueuze. Ok this makes no sense, yet it is strangely compelling. It’s a bit of a laugher, but I could finish a glass of that.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Smells of sheep shit, so I guess at least the peat is good. Harsh sour aspects too. Hazy and pale. Fucking sharp vinegary palate. This is just pure battery acid. Brett should introduce a funkiness, never vinegar, these guys are doing it wrong. The rest of the ingredients I like, but the light grains are completely killed by the acid.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A hazed amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, strange yet nice mix of peated malt with grassy Brett and lactic notes, faint rubber, interesting. In mouth, a nice sour ale with good peatyness, lactic acid, fruity esters, surprisingly good. On tap at Tørst.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, big thanks to Dan. It pours cloudy pale golden - orange with a thick white head. The aroma is earthy, funky, musty, dirt, farmyard, manure, peat, medicinal action, whisky, dirt and muck. The taste is crisp, tart, sour lemon sherbet, grapefruit, medicinal, some bright acidity, barnyard, gooseberry, smoked peat and dirt with a sour lemon finish. Medium body and fine, foamy carbonation. Pretty freakin odd, but actually ok.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by jackl at my 10K tasting. Hazy yellow, thin foamy white head, good retention. Aroma of strong meaty smoke, brett, funk. The taste is tart fruits, smoke, mesquite, papery notes. Thin bodied, no hint of booze, interesting. Odd beer, strangely intriguing.
