3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle from ArtigianBeer, served in a goblet glass. Golden orange, pretty hazy, with a nice and fluffy off-white head. Strange aroma, vanilla and nutty notes upfront, followed by slightly toasted malts, coconut and tropical fruits. Slightly soapy as well. Sweet and hoppy in the mouth, not exactly dry and crisp as I was hoping. Sugary malts, a hint of pine needles and coconut milk in the aftertaste. Soft carbonation, medium body and creamy texture. Almost going in the DIPA territory, as strange as that sounds. Not exactly refreshing, but the alchool is well hidden. Decent.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very sweet fruit and yeasty aroma, a nice change up from what im used to. Cloudy golden colour. Really nice crisp white head. Big yeast flavours, some banana stuff going on, and a hint of some spices. Decent taste but not digging the palate, stinging zing and metallic hops linger. Actually someone mentioned hay, spot on call. Strange beer, but I would give it another go.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Jacks, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon, Tuesday 21st January 2014 consumed at home Sunday 2nd February 2014 A little cloudy on the pourage, the top is white sticky foam. With the aroma you get a sense of something beery but that has been put away for some time so certainly not a clean flinty minerally nose that I was expecting. A rather flabby pils in the mouth, lacks crispness, bite and isn’t refreshing which I consider to be the hallmarks of a decent Pils. Its drinkable but that is a rather back handed compliment I guess, just ok. A5 A4 T6 P3 Ov10 2.8
