Hazy amber beer, tidy white head. Peppered with dark lumpy bits that soon fall to the bottom. Palate is light with good fine carbonation. Light malts, not much sweetness. Spicy bitter hops. Very mild dried fruits. Semi dry finish, mild bitter linger. Touch of dry malt cream. Okay bitter.

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.

500ml bottle-conditioned. Pours a clear gold, with diminishing white head. Aroma and taste: herbal hop with abit of sherbet. Interestingly different. Palate: medium bodied, well carbonated, quite bitter. Overall: a welcome english bitter, quite sweet.
