3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. 5.8%. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is floral hops. The flavour is medium bitter with a thin bodied, hoppy, weak liqourice, citrus fruit palate and a short bitter finish. Needs a little more on the hop front I feel, but a decent session beer.

Light chestnut, offwhite lacing, grapefruit pith and red fruits, butterscotch and melon. Full bodied, low carbonation, sweet malt, green apple sharpness, dry bitterness, long herbal dry finish. Maybe that summer heat had an effect.
