Mad_Ferret (553) - SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2011
Bottle. A chaotic huge dirt white and very porous unstable head quickly rises in the glass over a muddy brownish orange liquid. Is it always like this with this brewery? Aroma has lot of resin and bitter citrus with some caramel and play-doh. This is raw, harsh resiny hop juice. Earthy and also maybe a bit vegetal. Taste has sweetness from caramel and theres grapefruit, apricot and mango seed there but whatever balance is totally overthrown by a very high and dry bitterness. I feel a burn in the back of my throat from the alcohol. Medium bodied with soft tickeling carbonation. Is just the beer or the whole brewery infected? They always shoot out of the bottle and taste unbalanced and home brewed. Am I missing something?

johndoughty (3716) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2011
Bottle. A somewhat insipid yellow appearance which was unfortunate as things definitely got better. Small head and a pleasant citrus flavour with some hoppiness. Citrus mouth feel that lingers,Interesting beer shame about the appearance.
