3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ BierCab. This is a cloudy looking kinda deep peach golden, some mild amnerbess in this and it has a nice big frothy lacing off-white head. Nose vise I get a fair amount of sweet red berries blended with yeast residues. Yeah, quite a fair amount of yeasty notes in this glass. Not super pleasant to be honest. Caramel sweetness, red caramel and yeasty nuts. I’ve smelled more inviting pale ales to be honest, but I guess it works. If has a soft carbonation level and a gliding oily feeling in the mouth. It’s actually both quite toffee sweetish and zesty bitter this. It’s clearly not a fresh keg this, or I hope it’s not cause it sure doesn’t taste all that fresh. Almost a little wood tart or even thin vinegary in the finish. Slightly oxidized in a way also. It definitely gets the job done though, cause I’m enjoying it more and more. 05.08.2014

Backlog rating. Keg at CBC Clerkenwell, London. It pours a clean golden colour with a big white head. Long lasting foam and lot of carbonation streming off the bottom of the glass. Aroma is hop forward on the fruity side, with pineapple and citrus. Taste is similarly fruity but not overly bitter. Grapefruit and peaches with a touch of acidic note in the finish. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Nice and refreshing.

Aroma is fairly bland, some bright hops on the palate, but doesn’t do much for me. Rather featureless for its abv.
