2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On cask at Marquis Cornwallis pub, London-- pours clear amber with medium white head. Nose is slightly malty, quite evanescent. Aromas are herbal hops, weed, lemon, pepper notes. Flat carbonation, light body. Medium bitter finish. Not convinced at all by the herbal/weeds aromas, an not bitter enough according to me.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at the Henry Addington. It pours clear deep amber with a small off-white head. The nose is sweet, stinky sorachi, aniseed, herbal, menthol, grassy, sweet lemon candy and a touch of pink marshmallow. The taste is bitter - sweet, biscuit, grassy, herbal, aniserd, some bubblegum, sweet lemon with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Well enough made, just too much sorachi for my liking...

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A clear deep golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of lemon, slight lime, a little apple, some cream and subtle herbal, grassy hops. Taste of lemon, lime, dill, some red berries, slight coconut, a little apple, a hint of vanilla and subtle herbal hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A bittersweet, vanillry, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. The amount of sorachi ace hop characteristics in this beer surprised me. Lemony, coconuty and herbal. At 3.8, very sessionable too. Decent but not amazing.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at The Railway, Richmond. Dark orange, still, slight haze, small bubbly white head. Aroma is airy, light, touch of astringent apple peel. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is buttery, mint, coconut, touch woody and medicinal, watery finish. Not bitter enough for me so comes across a bit wishy washy, but has an interesting Sorachi flavour.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly peppery sorachi aroma with soft fruit, lime and soft lemon. Slight towely smell. Flavour is floral, white peppery with citrus lurking around in indefinite measure. Fairly sweet but well balanced - nice and thick. I think these guys must have really upped their game. Well done Jonny
