3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. Hazy dark golden to amber colour with average, creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Aroma is hard to define: unspecific fruity, minimally yeasty, no idea. Taste is herbal, grassy and bitter hoppy, cautious pale and caramel malty background. Relatively light body.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden bodied with creamy light bubbly. Smooth body, Sugary at first but also enough fullness and hop backup. Aroma disappoints though, simple malts and cereal. Taste is totally different. Drinks well. Just the aroma is lacking behind the rest. (33cl bottle traded with Rob, thanks!)

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at BrewDog Camden. Pours light chestnut brown with a small khaki head which quickly disappears. An odd sourish biscuity malt throughout this brew. Weird. Not my thing

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle) Hazy, golden to light-amber colour with an off-white short foamy head. Aroma of spicy, herbal and a bit nettle-like hops combined with a tinge of cara-malt. Bitter and slightly sweet flavour, medium bodied with an almost crisp carbonation. Soft cara-malty base with a present hops character, hints of pop-corn and subtle fruity notes; dry-ish bitter-sweet finish with a lasting herbal and spicy hoppy tail. A well-crafted Bock. 27.IV.13

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at BrewDog Manchester. Hazy orange with a thin ring of white head. Nice fruity aroma with citrus and berry notes predominant. Caramel underpins the taste with grassy hops providing some bitterness. Also has a slight effervescent, medicinal quality that keeps things interesting. Decent stuff.

Very good memory. I remember a dream I had last night. Do you? You don’t, I know you don’t. Audible Brain Leak.

Share with Dish and Banny. Yep, fourth in the row. Liked it. More like half board than bed and breakfast. Cheers Danny, good heads up, I’d Fugazi.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Keg @ Arendsnest. The pour’s amber with a small head. Quite fruity on the nose. Concentrated peach juice, golden honey. Fruity esters. The taste is moderately yeasty, some brioche bread. A touch of zippy raspberry fruit and more honey. Medium body, soft carbonation. Overall, OK.
