3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2014 Bottle. Gold with an inch of white head. Aroma is floral with herbal lemon, honey. Sweet with hay and honey, quite earthy and little dusty, pithy citrus, a little pine, lingering rather bitter finish. Has a lot of presence for 4.2%. [3.5]
For a Welsh beer this is a real citrusy hop bomb. Almost too much bitterness. Label redesign is great.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden pour, white head. Toffee in the smell with some spice. Flavor is grapefruit blended with breadcrust and a tiny hint of crystal malt. Dry and zippy. Got all of these Celt beers for 2$ each and before the bb date. Still overpriced but for an import organic ale it is a steal.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. 2 days past best drink by date. Pours a hazy medium orange golden, bubbles surrounding glass, small soapy white head. Aroma is dry, a little sweet, toasty, earthy hops, little caramel, light citrus. Light and crisp. Some creaminess. Finish is quite bitter, dry and outlasting its welcome. Earthy, cracker, light citrusy. Enjoyed a little more as it warmed a bit further than I already had, but not the best drinkability for me.

Aroma is dry, a little sour(?) hops, hay, earthiness.
Taste is fairly bitter, a little citrus or something in there, light and golden, just like the color. Cracker. Fairly strong bitter finish.

0.5 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Copper color. Aromas of fruity and piney hops. Rich bitter, piney and grainy taste with toasted nuts and petrol. Very good hoppy ale. Rich taste, hard to believe this is only 4.2 %.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Botella de 50 cl. Color dorado, ligeramente turbio. Abundante y duradera espuma. Carbónico el justo. Aromas florales y frescos. En boca, sabores frutales, vainilla....y el retrogusto más amargo de lo que se podría imaginar.
Y todo esto con solo 4,2% de alcohol. Para disfrutar

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from DM’s with expiry 18/5/14. Looks great with a bright golden body, decent creamy white head and lace rings on the glass. Aroma has butterscotch, biscuity malts and citrus fruity hops (oranges and grapefruits mainly) with good balance on the tongue and a decent spruced hop finish. Nice clean refreshing palate with oily texture and medium body with lowish carbonation. Very enjoyable on a hot Summer’s day.
