Keg @ Euston Tap. An absolute taste bomb. Lots of resinous hops, slightly orangey with a great bitter bite. If it wasn’t so strong I’d have had another!

Bottled@vPBFIII. Orangeish amber colour, mediumsized slightly off-white creamy head. Aroma is caramel, fruits and some floral notes along with a bit of toffee as well. Flavour is fruity, floral, grssy, toffeeish and mildly alcoholic as well. Pleasant, but a bit too much alcohol pushing through in the flavour.

330 ml bottle.
Pours a copper amber colour with a white lacy head. Aroma is very resiny with some caramel and gooseberry notes. Big resiny flavour with herbs, pink grapefruit, floral notes, toasted malts and caramel. Medium to full bodied, thick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. I wish I had a fresh bottle. This has potential.
