4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Taster from BBN tom at launch, CBC although I must confess I’ve had the prototype for this. Colour is toasty golden amber, white head. Nose surprisingly is citrous sweet, tangerine, lemon, orange. Taste is also citrous sweet, tangerine and sherberty, with a bit of malty graininess. This is my kind of blonde beer, although half way to an APA.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy golden, I mean a full steady bright murk with soft icing of a head and slim ring. Nose is gritty hay, gamey pineapple and gluey papery floral. Solidly robust flurry of tangerine, bit pithy but very straightforward. Soft bitterness but a firm, creamy malt sheen with an equally soft mouthfeel. Finishes a sweaty lemon and a growing cheer of clipped citrus and creamy stone fruit linger. Bottle, Beerhive.

Keg, BrewDog Leicester. Murky orange skimmed with white. Peachy orange and biscuit base nose with a squirt of rose water. Soapy floral husky flavour with an almost smokey balance and washy peach and cedar. Decent fruity beast struggling to contend with the other monsters on the table.

Smak: Lekko ściągająca goryczka, Wyraźnie wyczuwalne cytrusy.
Piwo dość nisko wysycone, niczym się nie wyróżnia, nie zachwyca. Jest cytrus, jest goryczka i koniec emocji.
