3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, Batch 237, BF 230713
I’m having difficulties to describe this one, because I cant pick up something that clearly stands out. Aroma of honey, slightly piney, something overripe (plums?) and with notes of vegetables? Muted taste, light bitterness, easy to drink.
The color has changed with time. It has become darker and has an unusual color. Some kind of hazy mahogny, but if I hold the glas against the sun it becomes lightly ruby red. Cool!
This is not my favorite batch. I prefer batches that had stronger piney hop character.

Large beige frothy head and a beautiful mahogany hazy body.
Aroma is dominated by aromatic hops: citrus, tropical fruit and maybe some pine. The taste is also fruity and hoppy, but with some toffee notes too. Finishes a sturdy and peppery bitter,

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light brown beer with a small beige head. Fruity peaches / peach marmelade on the nose. Grassy hops. Body is on the watery side. Could benefit from a bigger carbonation perhaps with a body this light. Some caramel. Not very complex. Quite a dull beer with decent hops. Not bad but not something you want more. The smell is the best on this one.

Pours a clear amber with a frothy light head o the top. Honey, sweet fruit and some citrus in the aroma. Tastes of grain, citrus and a piney bitter finish. A good ale.

330ml bottle at end of best before. Pop the cap, great aroma of sweet juicy fruity hops. Aroma dies down in the glass head disappears quickly leaving some lacing. Taste is citrus hops but thin watery and muted. Underwhelming, but I will definitely try a fresh one if I find it.

Platt. Luktar honung så det sjunger om det. Det är ju lite onödigt kan jag tycka

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear dark copper colour with thick creamy off white head leaving phenomenal lace all the way up the glass. Aroma is tropical fruit, and sweet malt. Flavour is mild grapefruit, pine, a nice moderate bitterness throughout without being harsh and overall kinda dry. Aroma is a bit light.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear amber with a frothy light brown head o the top. Aroma of huge grassy and citrus hops with a little bit of malt hiding in the background. Taste is pretty much all hops, citrus, some grass and a grape like cab sauv. Finishes dry and kinda champagnee again like a cab sauv. A very interesting take on the style of beer but overall needs more malt backbone or less hops.

Keg @ Jolly Butchers 2013/4/1 Good beer. Lovely colour and aroma but not so much bang for your buck. Find it particularly inconsistent but this was one of the better ones.
