Very little cloudy orange beer, aery white head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet malts, some honey, caramel, spices, bit flowery, ripe grapefruit. MF: too much carbon, medium body. Taste: fruity start, citrus touches, bitter hops, grassy, bit fruity but not much. Aftertaste: bitter, spices (cloves), bit nasty finish. Not as much a fan of it as I was last year.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 75cl. A finger-thick, off-white head sits on top of a more or less clear, golden body. Lacings. The aroma has a hoppy dominans, with grass, pine cones and some citrus peel. The flavor is a bit sweet I think, but with sufficient bitterness to deal with it. Piney, resiny hop flavor. A bit thin and dead on the palate, although quite effervescent. Full-bodied and sort of dryish, although there’s a really sweet flavor. Lasting bitterness in the end. A quite nice one, nothing extraordinary. 111126

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bubbly light straw colored pour. Fluffy white, medium sized head that sticks around and to the sides of the glass, leaving ample lacing. An earthy aroma combined with malt, hops and yeast. Big dry bitterness with a slight sweetness in the back. Malt and yeast flavors mix with a slight hop taste. Nice ale, but looks like a lager it is so light. A slight presence of alcohol.
