3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle). Nicely balanced scent, slightly sweet with aromas of floral hops, fruit and crispbread. Soft and fresh taste of fruit, citrus, hops and malt. The flavors are a little imprecise and "mixed", but not in a bad way. A nice beer!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:Hazy, deep golden to light amber coloured with a stable rocky off-white head, a touch of bread and vanilla(!?) in the otherwise dry citrussy-hoppy nose; dry bitter flavour with a subdued residual sweetness, pretty light bodied for a beer of 6.6%; lingering dry and tart lemony-grapefruity finish. Surely not bad, but still monotonous on a higher level…

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
citrus, orange, amber, cloudy, white foam, heavily sour, bitter, astringent
Such an unusual ale this one. It is absolutely lemon peel and not a lot else. Recommended by the staff at Brewdog Birmingham a week or so ago and we’ve just got round to drinking it. Aroma and aftertaste are both massively citrus in a big, round, grown-up kind of way.

Bottle from Bierkompass!
Pours strong copper colored with high, creamy off-white head. Smell has lots of herbal hops, paired with some citrus, spruce and caramel. Starts very bitter hoppy with lots of spruce, citrussy hops and some caramel malts. Goes into a grassy-bitter finish with some pine woods!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, bottled a year ago, so not the freshest example. Large sample. Hazy amber color, big frothy off-white head. Aroma of fainted fruity hops, some tropical fruit, some strawberry, hint of grapefruit. Biscuity from malts and quite some caramel and toffee. Soft bitter taste, more cookie maltiness. Although the hop nose is not what it has been, the malt balance is still splendid.
