3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
3 year old bottle. Clear golden-copper under a thin foamy white head. Nose is very musty, like a cellar, with some earthy dried grass hops. Flavor is dry and musty, like the nose, with an earthy leafy hop presence, a touch of pine, and a mild bitterness mixed with a faint kiss of dusty toffee. Not so great.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating #859 - LIVE - December 26, 2013. 750ml bottle from Coop’s December Discovery Bag, also my 2nd beer of #beermas. Clear coppery golden pour with a bubbly white head that lasts into the evening. Aroma is citric hops primarily, and a strong yeast note that enhances the orange, lemon zest. Taste is fairly bitter, creamy mouthfeel and a huge pastry-shop malt overload. More of a Belgian IPA perhaps, as hop and malt character dominates the senses, but this is not to its discredit.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
LIVE RATING: Bottle at home on 26th December 2013 - Christmas gift. Pours copper with sandy-tinged foam. Earthy aroma with pungent yeasts and some grassiness. Fruity liquid with spicy notes and a late grassy hop kick leading into bitter-sweet finish. Bitterness outlasts all malts and fruits. Zingy engaging texture, and fair body. Lush!

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
DAA; Bottle 33 cl. with a lighter green label than shown. Pours hazy amber with fading white head. Aroma is overwelming sour and yeasty, adds more punch than - a "gorgeous cellar aroma", malty, alcholic, fruity and spicy. Thankfully the taste is better, still mirrors, but adding sweet malts and dark fruits. Still it’s poorly balanced and not my glass of beer. Concidering if it’s spoiled. Medium body, crispy texture with a lasting, warming, sour, bitter finish.
