3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Straightforward citrus and pine, crisp straw and fairly welcoming hop notes. Initial taste was fairly watery, sweet enough but a little bit like fruit can drainage than the actual fruit itself. No major nooks or hooks of malt or hops, but a fairly bitty hop linger didn’t encourage a return to the glass too quickly. Warmed a little but could have been disguised as a flat English bitter off cask if I was blind tasting.
I had this right after the Loony Kuhnie so the orange and pine was more in the taste than the nose, and vice versa.
