Mahogany amber colour with a covering of white head. Notes of nectarine, candied orange peel and some faint woodiness. That woodiness comes through in the flavour along with gentle spice and orange peel again. There’s tangy bitterness and tingly carbonation. A bit of a treat down here.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber, slightly cloudy, with a small but sticky white head. Medium body. Aroma of malt and grass. Some malt in the flavour too, but this is quickly overtaken by hoppy bitterness which then lasts and lasts. Interesting, but I’d prefer the sweet malt middle to last a little longer before the onslaught of hops.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A mid orange red coloured beer with a weak off-white head. An odd strawberry jam aroma, with a background of grassy hops and light caramel. A light and dry mouthfeel. A light, medium-dry malty flavour, there is remnants of the strawberry jam element from the aroma, but this is soon overtaken by a light caramel flavour. This is then followed by a mild bitter hop flavour, that adds a grassy, woody taste. The finish is bitter and hoppy.
Tasted at JDW The Limes, Fakenham.
