4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Brewdog, Leeds. Lightly hazed, golden colour. Butter tinged, thin, tight, white head. Nice looking beer. Dark sugar sprinkled, ripe tangerine. Dried (although the Missus maintains fresh (like it matters)) apricot. Some lemon sherbet spritz. Taste is an initial sweetness, followed up straight away, by a middle of the mouth, citric, pithy, bitterness. Smooth, slightly gloopy palate. Pithy bitterness on the finish. And the apricot thing... actually, it probably does matter. That’s why we do this?

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, pours golden, nice nose pineapple and fruit bread with an ever-so-slight funk/sour nose which worked well with the fruit. Big sweet apricot on the finish for me and the more i had of it i could slowly but i could after much searching find the raisin, which is a pity because i wanted more.

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours golden with a thin white head. Fruity aroma, passion fruit and grapefruit, golden syrup just about there, but no raisins. Bitter taste, clean finish. Not bad.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Murky floaty golden, really odd visible sediment inside...and a decent bright contrasting white film to decent ringed head. Bright Crunchy Nut sweet cereral, keen enough hop in the nose. Lovely sweetness throughout wrestles a tupperware lid plasticyness on top of a mealy wholesome hop. Wee bit of a dragging bitterness, decent enough peppery/foamy carbonation combo. Finish is sweet, moreish but not over powering. Much nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber at BD Sheps B. It pours clear oranger-amber with a small white head. The nose is juicy orange, tangerine, nectarine, big flapjack character and toasted oats. The taste is bitter-sweet, tangerine peel, orange, raisin, light golden syrup, candied citrus peel, light toast, pepper and light alcohol with a bitter, somewhat citric finish. Good depth to it and rather well balanced. Fun and interesting.

JohnGalt1 - thank you for adding this!
Golden raisin with lumps of light, creamy foam. Lots of lace. Smells real nice to me. Citrusy, piny, bitter grapefruit, a bit of peach, lighter caramel malting. I like the assertiveness of the nose. Taste follows suit nicely with bitterness well balanced with a solid crystal malt background. The hops are resinous, and carry some pine needle, a bit of grapefruit pith, lemon rind and a touch of cattiness. Medium bodied with lighter carb. To be honest, this reminds me of Duet from Alpine, a really nice beer. Well done Elysian - after November’s absolute strike out, this was nice.
