3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bang on it’s BBD, from Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Hazy gold. Fairly dense, fairly thick, lasting, white head. Good looker. Fusty orange. Light spice. Light grapefruit. Some woodiness, possibly due to its age, but that’s fine by me. Taste is light dry, and light, zesty bitter. Finishes fusty bitter.

50cl bottle, bottle conditioned, from the Hogs Back Brewery shop, stated ABV 5.6%. A murky golden amber pour with a thin ring of white head; citrusy aroma; rich texture in the mouth, with honeyed tropical fruits, including pineapple and grapefruit; and a clean but sweet finish. THis really shows off the American hops.
