2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. After popping the cap this beer begins to rise ominously up the neck, determined to escape the bottle on its own. It’s a live ale alright! Pours a hazy orange-gold requiring several pauses in the pour to allow the ginormous head to settle down. Eventually it collapses into islands of dirty white flotsam with thick heavy rings o lace. Aroma of hay, grapefruit, and faint ammonia. Flavours of reedy malts with a touch of honey sweetness, but then come the hugely bitter hops-- beyond grapefruit, and into pithy peach-pit bitterness. On several swallows I got a distinct metallic tang as well (I had this with a tomato and avacado omelette-- breakfast for dinner). I think maybe this is past its best days, as it was almost harsh near the end.

From the bottle a lovely golden ale. Nice whiff of citrus & barley on the nose. The palate is clean & rounded, with lush barley & some zippy citrus notes. There’s a nice bitterness on the dry finish. I’d love to try on draught just to see if there’s the extra mouthfeel, but a very tasty golden ale.
