2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
At Borefts Beer Festival 2013. Hazy golden with a lasting white head. Aroma of grass and hay, with plenty of DMS, and an off-putting note of rotting grass. Dry with lots and lots of hay in the flavour. Wonder how long this was dryhopped...

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!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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)

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 27.09.2013, tap @ Borefts:
Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is fresh hoppy (pellets), grapefruit peel, tangerine peel, leafs, pine needles, English breakfast tea, grass. Taste is slightly dry grassy, hops, English breakfast tea, bark, leafs, grass, hints of cardboard. Longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Fair enough.
