3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy light amber, with a medium, yet dissipating head. The aroma is a pleasing mix of grassy and floral hops. There is a very strong initial hops hit, which moderates into a slightly sweet floral flavour. It finishes with a smooth caramel malt flavour, which neatly balances out the predominant hops. This is a lovely bitter. It doesn’t look like much, but it has just the right balance to be a really delightful drink.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, batch 89. Pours an unclear golden yellow, with a medium head that quickly disintegrates. Sweet aroma of pine. Tastes very good, with a hoppy bitterness that attacks straight away, before leaving place for a lightly roasted, caramelly malt, and a sweet hint of sap. Light body, with a quite lively carbonation. Finishes of with a good, dry bitterness that sticks long into the aftertaste. A fabulous bitter!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bought at a local supermarket. Pours a golden orange. Quite bitter aftertaste. Nice fresh, citrusy aroma, but overall way too bitter for my taste and therefore slightly disappointing. By no means undrinkable, just not quite my taste. I’ll try it again later with some food, maybe that’ll be good!
