2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear golden colour with a thin white head. Soft aroma of grainy malt, some cardboard, slight orange and subtle grassy hops. Taste is similar of pale, grainy malts, some biscuit, slight orange, subtle yeast and maybe grassy hops in the background. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, slight dusty hop bitterness in the finish. Quite a balanced bitter but really boring.

Idiosynkrasie (5555) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 28, 2014
2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle. Barely clear golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Grainy and slightly strawy aroma meets luckily citrusy hoppy overtones with a lemon touch. Taste is cautiously citrusy hoppy, grainy, strawy basis; slightly watery. A bit poor for a 25th anniversary Ale - and at the same time a document for the development of the craft beer scene: I could swear you’ll find a "Better Alcohol Drink" in London today. Maybe you could already in 2006. But that could mean to discredit ’The Excellence in Food and Drinks Awards’ - an objective not to be pursuited at this point, naturally.
