4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask @ Borefts 2012. Clear bright orange, creamy white head. Nose is chokefull or pine resin, tangerines, mandarins, lychee, damn juicy. Sweet, lots of exotic fruits flavour, mango, orange peel and tangerines, lychee, juice, pine resin in the back. Flat cask body, which is an UK thing of sorts as far as I am concerned but the lovely juicy fruitiness compensates.

Cask at Borefts 12. Big white frothy head. Straw yellow pour. The aroma Is very hoppy which is a big clue to what lies behind in the flavour. Nice bitterness on the palate. The sample I tasted was a little on the warm side but I can't help but feel it should be served a little cooler which would have enhanced the experience.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask handpump at BBF’12. Clear light amber colour, no head. Aroma is nice hoppy, grapefruit, loads of citrus, passion fruit. Flavour is very leafy, rotten leaves, green leaves, some citrus and grapefruit, grapes, medium sweet malty, bitter finish. Light bodied, flat. I think (and hope) this was off, I had really high hopes for this beer, as everything else from these guys is just great. Hope to rate the bottled version anytime soon.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Borefts 12. Clear yellow-golden color, small to medium sized white head. Smell and taste sticky, pine, resin, hops and medium bitterness. Low bodied though, and also low carbonation which frankly is a bit disappointing.
