2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearance: hazy orange with a generous pithy head which fades clumpy while sticking to sides of glass. Swirls with puff and a bulbous hump in the middle.
Nose: marmalade breads. Sweet rolls with crust and crisp crackers underneath. Bright orange skins mingle with green grass. Faint yeasty doughy quality.
Palate: medium-light weight and mouthfeel, touch on the thin side. Sweet right up front with marmalade, sweet rolls, and orange honey. Dry in the back with grass, straw, and crackers. Overall clean and a touch too quick. Orange and tangerine skins start sweet then grow bitter and dry. Watery lemon ice underneath. Faint marmalade and dough lingers but never for too long.
Final Thoughts: overall okay, though not much of anything to write home about or recall in fond remembrance. Thankfully in a brown bottle.

Bottle from Bottleworks. BBF 01/01/11. Oops? Pours hazy dark gold with a slight white head. Aroma is rather crisp and citrus. Flavor is light malt with some hop, and a flavor that suggested marine air. Iím thinking floral, but itís far from perfumey. Bitter, but not strongly so. English that. Iím putting this down as a session bitter.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is buttery and yeasty with hay, herbs, and corn like malt. The appearance is amber gold with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma with a strangeness that is somehow enjoyable. The palate is average. Overall a drinkable beer that is not great.

Pours golden with a spattered head that reduces to some powdery clouds. Smells rustic with aged citrus. Medium full nectar with decent carbonation. This is very typical of itís genre and was rather enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Unfiltered orange-amber color. Big, fluffy off-white head. Slightly odd seawater aroma. Rather straightforward English Bitter. Mild, toasty malt backbone, touches of butterscotch. The hops are sort of one-dimensional, just giving some soapy balance. Sessionable, nowhere near a World Class offering.

Thanks after4ever! Toasty buttermilk biscuit drizzled with honey. Some blackberry notes & clover. Yellow gold, slight haze, small white head. Grainy sweetness, not all that balanced in the finish.
