3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at The Rake tap takeover, London. It pours a light amber color with a thin bubbly head. Aroma is lightly sweet with notes of ripe fruits, a little beady, with a lingering mild citrus hop bite. The hops presence dominates the flavor, followed by a earthy fruitiness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Very refreshing, but somewhat raw.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
W aromacie sporo herbaty, lekka kwiatowość i żółte owoce, sporo miodu, niestety utlenione, mimo to aromat niezły. W smaku wytrawne, herbaciano - ziołowe ze sporą goryczką początkowo cytrusową, lecz na finiszu przechodzącą w trawiastą, ściągającą i niezbyt przyjemną. Pozostawia posmak piołunu. Lepiej pachnie niż smakuje.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy and fairly pale amber body with some visible sediments and a large, creamy, off-white head. Fairly strong aroma of tropical fruits, mainly spicy mango. Quite strong flavour of soapy tropical fruits, a touch of caramel, some gentle spices and floral hints. A bit stinging moderate bitter finish, not much sweetness. Dry and chalky mouthfeel, moderate carbonation, fairly light-bodied. A decent one, but I prefer more caramel and less soap.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber-hued orange body with a large creamy off-white head and lots of sediments. Aroma is huge lemony citric notes, citric peel, grass, peaches and hints of apricot. Taste is citric peel, earthy wet leaves, mild pine, grass and hints of hay and apricot. Medium body and carbonation and a dry, near-parching mouthfeel. The contrast between the extremely lemony citrus tones in the aroma and the rather earthy hop profile in the taste is striking and a little disturbing, somehow. Decent enough, but no winner.

Keg at the brewery. It pours lightly hazy golden-amber with a thick white head. The nose is malt-driven, bready, toasty grain, hay and mild spice. The taste is crisp, bitter, breadth, toasty grain, pine, light sweetness with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Decent bready affair.
