2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask @Greyfriar. Pale, clear, gold. Piney. In a lavatory block sense, but not really unpleasantly. Bit thin, bitterness that lingers, then departs. I would order it again, but not here, today, when Sound Wave is available.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Buxton Tap House, pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Nose brings out lots of hay and biscuity malts. Flavour brings out dry floral hops, some hay, and biscuity malt. Quite dry and astringent, with a nice floral component. Very well-balanced, with a slight farmhouse character. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle from Birra+ (bottled on 15-04-2014). Pale canary yellow, slightly hazy, with a tiny, non persistent white head. Tropical explosion on the nose: papaya, mango, lots of pineapple, some light melon/white grapes notes, very fruity and hop forward, but in a different way. Some mild earthy presence, almost like wet tea leaves or wood smell. Surprisingly flavourful for such a low ABV beer. Quite high level of bitterness, definitely a solid bready/biscuity malt presence. Fruity, slightly peppery and hoppy as well, but more citrusy than tropical. It feels watery, but it really isn’t. Extremely drinkable tho. Average carbonation, light body, slightly creamy texture. Another great one from Buxton.
