3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Variation on Black Sheep Ale with a thick, cream white, equal head and orange blonde colour bordering on amber, clear. Aroma reveals soapy and grassy hoppiness, vanilla, green apple, some orange, a hint of smoked meat and fried egg. Taste fresh and citrussy, peach and orange peel, drying with a relatively strong carbonation due to the bottle conditioning, sweetish pale malts, caramelly middle, smooth but somewhat thin mouthfeel, finishing in a dry grassy and somewhat peppery, yet mild hop bitterness. Refreshing ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle from the Spar.
Appearance - golden amber with a decent head.
Nose - lemon curd and hay.
Taste - lemon and metallic. Enveloped in honey.
Palate - medium bodied with a tangy texture and a fairly good finish but slightly cloying with the tanginess I would say.
Overall - decent ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear, golden orange, medium carbonation. Sweet malt and odd sulphur tang on the nose. A little oily on the palate. Strong peppery hops with a little citrus and light caramel, giving way to grass and thick dough aromas, with a rather metalic end. Drinkable, but nothing special, and rather unbalanced.

Pours golden with a foamy white head which gradually fades to a ring. Aroma is floral, honey, citrus and hops. Taste is honey, hops, citrus, bitterness and quite sweet. Also a bit watery, which is a shame.
