2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught @ Borefts 2013. Clear yellow color, small to medium sized off-white head. Smell malts, grassy, hayish, grainy. Tastes about the same: hayish, malty, grainy and lightly grassy hops. Average body and carbonation. Hope to drink this again some time when it’s 30 degrees Celsius outside and I’m really thirsty. I think it would score way better since at the festival there were so many strong (flavoured) beers.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at BBF ’13. Orange colour, white head. Aroma of lots of tea, cold, old and used teabag, nettles. Flavour is bicuity, cookies, tea, nettles, perfumy bitter finish. Light-bodied. What happened to the nice hops? I really dislike this tea flavour in supposedly hoppy beers. Pity.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear yellow colored beer with a white lacing on top.
Aromas of tea herbs, nettle, flowers, sunscreen, quite strange!
Flavours of grass, nettle, wheat, old hops, skunked...
Aftertaste is grassy with some skunky tea herbs and hayhops...
Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a creamy texture.
Quite a strange beer and both editions are so much alike!

Golden, hazy body. Not quite as hop rich as the Simcoe variety. Solid bitterness, same biscuit malt backbone. Smooth hop forward beer, not too floral or crisp. Very good body. Nice. (On tap at Borefts 2013)
