3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle, served in Irish Pint. Pours hazy orange, flame, with small white frothy head (lasting). Citrusy aroma with some malts and yeast. The flavour is lightly fruity (ripe fruits), hoppy (more evident on the nose though), and quite yeasty. Medium mouthfeel, good carbonation. Drinkable and refreshing, not exactly a Bitter, nor an English Pale Ale...weird but nice.

33cl bottle, Geers, sampled VI2013 (backlog). Pours a very pleasant zesty and effervescent orange, which is then mirrored in aroma and taste: tangerine hops and a wisp of pale malt caramel working in accord with refreshingly thin mouthfeel. As much subtle flavour as you can pack into a light continental bitter, I suppose. Always in support of tasty & light new summer brews...

Bottle from Good Beer. Dry, mineral nose, earthy hops, grass and light citrus, some caramel. Medium amber color with a low head. Light malt flavor, citrus hops, caramel, chocolate. Rather thin and quite metallic, a bit dirty as well, but hops and malt balance well. OK, but nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Clean aroma of (Belgian?) yeast, orange and a hint of white pepper.
Appearance: Hazy golden body with a massive off-white head. Light carbonation. Lots of sticky lacing marks.
Taste: Subtle flavour of grass, straw and lime. Pear and coriander.
Palate: Thin to medium body with a very oily mouthfeel. Flat carbonation.
Overall: It’s listed as a Bitter but I think it’s more of a Pale Ale. It’s certainly more hoppy and complex than all other Bitters I’ve tried.
