4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, 330ml from The Real Ale Store, Newark, Notts. Slightly hazed gold amber with white head. Perfectly presented APA with juicy hops to the fore, the body of the beer itself just has a hint of caramellisation, giving it some depth, but remains crisp on the palate. The hops deliver juicy, tropical fruit notes, rich but refreshing. Good stuff.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
0.33L bottle. Hazy amber, medium fluffy hat, stays. Compost heap, silo, barn smell. Gentle mouth...impressive. Flavours are mixed very pleasantly. Rotten egg taste is lightly, rotten veggies, light lemon peel, some herbs and mouldy bread, garlic, soy and strong grass in finish. Enjoyable bitter end. Damn good beer. Taste, flavours and aroma, aftertaste and feelings are very right place.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle from Les Vignerons (Bottled on 22-05-2014) Light sunrise orange, slightly hazy, with a big, fluffy and persistent off white head. Despite being almost 3 months old, the aroma is amazing as soon as the cap went off. Fresh, pungent, resiny hops, sligtly tropical but definitely more citrusy. One dimensional but exactly what I’ve been digging lately. It does show its age in the taste, as the hoppiness feel a bit tired and the malt more prominent. Still quite bitter, juicy, pleasently dry and refreshing. Lingering fruity and honey like sweetness. A little bit more than average carbonation, light to medium body, creamy texture. Another great hoppy APA from Buxton.
