Bottle consumed at Cropredy ’Fairports Annual Reunion’ Festival, Cropredy, Oxon, Thursday 7th August 2014 Pours clear warm gold, really is excellent clarity, a touch of honey bitterness good but under a malty leash. Nicely hoppy, but goes well with smoked almonds. A very good beer but smoother and less crisp than expected. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov13 3.3

Bouteille 33cl, batch# 065, BB 11/03/2015.
Orangée-ambrée, col crémeux beige.
Arôme est fruité tropical, rétro subtil de pamplemousse assez léger accompagnée d’une note fleuri, base maltée similaire aux autres versions.
Palais est fruité laissant pointer une fine amertume, le tout reste un peu huileux avec une certaine épaisseur et belle effervescence. Garde cette base maltée typique, léger fruité vert.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle.
Pours clear golden color with a medium sized head. Aroma is grape fruity and somewhat resinous with hops, mild orange zest and pine needle notes also. Flavor is caramelous and tropically fruity, a bit sweet but the grape fruits cut it through a bit, mild piney notes with hay and dried fruits. Thick oily palate, doesn’t feel quite fresh but definitely the best of the bunch. Hop profile ok, a bit too sweet and resinous.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle. Pours a golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of lemon peel, some basil and fresh mint. Flavour of rich citrusy bitterness, chewy orange notes, sweetness and some resin. The bitterness kicks in quite nicely in the finish. Medium bodied. Quite classic in it’s bitterness, and it works as good as always. I found Comet to be even better, though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught at BrewDog Camden, London, 9 Apr 2014) Pale amber colour with brief, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, tea, lemon peel and biscuity malt. Malty, fruity taste with citrus, tea, lemon peel, a slightly sharp and metallic malt profile and a generous citric bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Tasty and well made, possibly a bit one dimensional. Nice one.
