3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Don't be frightened by the word, ORGANIC! This beer is GREAT! Pours a large, pillowy head - clear tawny brew (Lovibond 13/14). Distinctive scent of gum balls although it's very light. Head and lace persist through the duration of my drink. Tastes amazingly unique. Some of that gum ball sweetness, with a hoppy note for balance. Some mild hints of smoky, nutty flavours which make for an interesting beer. Totally in my favorites!
Some long mildly bitter aftertaste though to trump a perfect review, and the carbonation is moderate to low.

500ml bottle. Pours a clear amber with a light tan coloured head. Aroma is fruity malt, faint caramel, floral notes. Taste is heavy on caramel, and sugar notes. Clean mineral notes, with the standard British hopping, and faint dried fruit, withmolasses in the very mineral finish. Light bodied. Easy drinking stuff.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
[bottle from LCBO]
Sourish citrusy fermentation ester aroma with some brown sugar and apples. Clear bronze under a lasting white island and ring. Flavour is a fairly sour and slightly metallic biscuity malt balanced by significant bitterness and with notes of lemon and caramel apple. Metallic feel and bitterness sort of combine in a bad way. Medium body, moderate carbonation, lasting moderate bitterness.
