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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Cask at Crown Rivers JDW, London Heathrow Terminal 5, 1 Dec 2014) Amber colour with foamy, beige head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, apricots, hints of resin and lots of fresh hops. Malty, fruity taste with citrus, apricots, a touch of ginger and fresh hops in a finish with a balanced bitterness. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Fresh and tasty. Nice one.

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.
