On tap at Tallinn Craft Beer Weekend. Clear golden with a white head. Moderate hoppy and more grassy and herbal than expected. dome fruity notes too and moderate caramel notes, hints of citrus. Medium sweet with somewhat mild hoppy flavours and a moderate bitterness. Decent stuff, but not right up my alley.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Italian Job, Chiswick. Clear gold. Film of sticky, white head. Lovely, sweet, dank resin on the nose. Some orange, and a distinct, sweet, pink grapefruit element to it. Taste is sticky sweet, turning light bitter. Fairly rich. A tad of dry for good measure. Soft, sticky lipped palate. Finishes moderate bitter. Good stuff, but I could have managed more bitterness to balance the sweetness out.
