Amber with a lasting, creamy off-white head. Clean aroma mostly of citrus (hops). Sweet with some odd herbal notes in the flavour along with citrus, a possible hint of diacetyl and a bit ashy finish. Didn’t quite leave a tingle in the crown jewels

On keg at The Brewdog Bar. A dark golden colour with a thick beige head. Strong aroma of fresh cut grass with pungent resinous hops and spices. Tastes grassy and herbal with a little caramel. Lingering grassy herbal flavour. Interesting.

Bottle at BCTC Saturday night back at camp. Pours a hazed golden orange with a thin white head. Hoppy, with bitter quinine notes and some medicinal earthy notes on the nose. Quite woody (no pun intended). Malty, toast. Zesty bitterness on the finish.

7/10 i mörkhet. Fruktig och syrlig i lukten. Besk men inte så mycket mer i smaken med en besk eftersmak.

Bottle at Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Hazy orangey amber with a big, yellowish head. Strong grapefruity hop nose. Grapefruity and spicy, quite herbal, a touch of fruit towards the finish. Nice, despite the bitter stiffness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at The Brewdog Bar, Edinburgh. Hazed amber with slight head. Blimey, this was really quite strange, not perhaps quite as strange as the British fascination in Royalty, but strange. There was me expecting a hop fest and out comes a big caramel toffee flavour and seemingly a Dark Chocolate hint. There is a background oilyness, although the fullness of flavour saves it, it doesn’t seem quite right.

Bottle... Clear dirty-orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. Fantastic retention. The aromatic scheme is centered on resiny, musky hops with a minimal rumor of menthol. Medium-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The flavor offers good balance – juicy, flavorful hops; nice, mildly roasted malts. Not very bitter, which is totally fine with me. Bittersweet finish. Darn good blend. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!
