3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium gold, with a very large white head, which lasts well and leaves reasonable lacing. Pronounced doughy yeast notes mix with floral and mandarin hops to create the aroma. Floral, orange and slight pine hops up front give way to a fairly light body, with white bread malt notes. Mandarin and mild spice hops come into the finish. A pleasantly refreshing golden ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Possibly the liveliest bottled conditioned beer I’ve ever opened - be warned! Amber colour with a haze despite leaving the sediment in the bottle. A big, foamy, off-white head. Really handsome looking. The aroma is dampened by the head initially, but there’s yeast, pineapple, and even wood shavings there later. The taste really reminded my of a saison, which is not my favourite style so I’ve probably ended up rating this a little lower than it deserves. Pineapple at the start, then spice, then a dry, yeasty, bubblegum finish. Good.
