Euston Tap. Keg. 6.8% abv. Pretty hazy gold beer with a small white head. Wonderful nose of Motueka like floralness with a touch of citrus. The palate is smooth with a light fine carbonation. The malt is sweet and creamy and does a lovely job of supporting fantastic NZ hops. Rich and sweet floralness kept in check by light orange and tropical fruits. The malt doesn’t let go though and provides a smooth finish that is punctuated by crisp nip. This is fantastic. A beer has to be very good indeed for me to order a second one. Well I drank another three of these and was sad when I had to leave because they were closing down!

BeerCast_Rich (1879) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 23, 2013
[keg at BrewDog Edinburgh] Pours a hazy golden colour, with a decent white head. Was expecting lots of vinous notes on the nose, but instead it’s fairly tropical, alongside some resin. On the taste, grassy, resinous, with some sweeter caramel notes. Aftertaste is more of the resinous pine. Hugely drinkable [17102013]

Osprey87 (1721) - WALES - AUG 17, 2013
LCBF. Hazy yellow, small white head. Smells hoppy, maybe some lemon. Body and carbonation are medium. Taste - slight caramel, lychee/gooseberry, nice level of bitterness. Maybe a bit underdone, but it’s a nice beer.
