3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A clear-looking dark golden to amber beer with dense, finger-thick off-white head. The aroma is peachy and piney, with orange zest and a little maltyness. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, with orange zest, pine cones and some grapefruit. Medium body, soft and pleasant carbonation. Long, piney and bitter finish with a decent bitterness. Juicy. Not a favorite of mine, but quite decent and drinkable. 140608

Bottle from Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Hazy, copper colour. Thin, bubbly, sticky, white head. It’s all there. Toffee sweetness. Resin. Stewed fruit. But there’s a butteriness, that doesn’t sit right. Taste is brûlée sweet. Lots of bitterness, too. Heavy, sweet palate. Finish is long and bitter. The butter thing dominates.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours dark hazy amber with a thick khaki head. Nose is very grassy and resinous with stewed pineapple. Taste very much mirrors that - it’s all about the earthy grassy feel with the very sticky sweet malt base. Nice drop

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
That sought after (by me) Ice cream toffee aroma with a slightly bitter / tart maltiness. deep golden with little to no head. A tangy, beautiful pine and spicy peppery hop character. Really interesting. Bittersweet, balanced really well. A rather ’green’ taste going on.
