2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
23rd January 2012
On tap at Craft. Slightly hazy gold beer, little white head. Smooth semi dry palate with very mild carbonation. A little pale malt and a trace of citrus. Alcohol dryness is the dominant characteristic. Tasted more alcohol in this than the 15.0% BrewDog Jura earlier in the evening! Didn’t want to finish it and I left more than half of it.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Pibar, Lausanne
Hazy blond color with generous head. Mild aroma of malt and English yeast. Blond ale, smooth, with a strange ashy feeling; strong yeasty presence and strong hard bitterness.
Not a good idea.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bottle Shop at Canterbury. Hazy pale gold thick white head. Light hoppy aroma. I mean its clearly not a stout. It’s quite heavy on the alcohol. Hoppy finish. More like an IPA to be honest. As an IPA it’s fine. REasonobly hoppy. A bit like Phoenix White Monk but with more alcohol. Yes it’s a bit hot. Durham normally cover up the alcohol a bit more. But this is a good and different beer. Decent

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, at Cardinal. A lightly unclear, golden colored beer with a finger-thick white head. Pale malts, some fruityness and a touch of yeast in the aroma. Some herbs and grass too. Pale malts and fruityness in the flavor, it’s not too sweet, the bitterness is suitable, and there’s also a grassy touch in the flavor. Full body and a nice carbonation level. Lasting finish, a tad much on the malty side perhaps. Anyway, it’s a pretty decent one, but not the kind of beer I feel an urge to repeat. 140726
