3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught, Redlight Redlight
Golden-amber colour. Candy cherry - lime aroma with lots of syrupy malts. Slightly berryish and very sweet. Just thin enough to move all those sugars across the palate. I wasn’t terribly convinced but it was okay.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft… Lightly hazed, light amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The nose presents sweet, grainy notes of orange blossom honey and pale malts. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with restrained carbonation. The flavor is mainly sweet honey, but also yields mild bitterness for a semblance of balance. Finishes more sweet than bitter and then dries out a touch.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Barcade. Pale amber beer. Aroma is lightly fruity. There’s a bit of orange and light fruit. A little bit cidery though. Some apple and brown sugar. A strange brew, really. Tastes an awful lot like a malt liquor meets Belgian ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. After finally figuring out which beer this was, because all they called it was the brewmaster’s reserve, but there are three of those. Enjoyed this beer but would call it average.
