4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Hazy dark gold pour with a fast fading white head. Belting fruit and hop in the nose. Great balance struck in the flavour with a solid sweet malt spine working in tandem with some superb piney hop. Spot on bitterness, really excellent stuff. U can’t beat a bit of Buxton as Jim Bowen might say.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Live rate. Bottle limbering up for some stateside shenanigans: I expect to be drinking this kind of brew for breakfast for the next few days. Pours pale hazed orange with a fine white disc of head. Hot peach, orange liqueur, kumquat sharpness and soft pineapple aroma with plenty of alcohol presence. Softer and more floral on the palate with a pungent, nectar-like smoothness; dry pine; botanical impressions, kumquat and deep grounding husk. Less alcohol and more balance than anticipated; at heart all about those perfumed, aromatic little buds, but scattered over a rock solid, not-excessively-sweet malt foundation. Dry, biting and floral like a G&T. Top stuff.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Jerntorgets Brygghus, Göteborg. Somewhat hazy golden/copper beer with a decent offwhite head. Malty caramel aroma, grassy, peach, citrus, mango, some sweetness. Hoppy fruity flavor, caramel, sweetish, citrus, hay, floral notes, some alcohol. Nice beer, but a bit cloying, could have been cleaner and with more focus on the hops.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mikkeller Shop, Stefansgade, Copenhagen; bottled Aug 2013
Muddy dull amber color with generous compact head. Strong aroma of British yeast, somehow beesy and cheesy; very light citrusy hops. Good body strength, smooth mouthfeel; the flavor tends to be rather yeasty, with moderate sweetness in the front, but becoming drier in the end because of some astringency; strong bitterness, not excessive; the hops give some resins and some unfresh fruity touch.
Not bad, but very rough.
