3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I’m reading other contributors impressions of this beer and wondering if we’ve drunk the same ale?? e.g "liquorice, blackberry, herbal, spicy, caramel, oily orange, bread / dough" etc. I got none of this, (not even pebbles in the rain).
For me, this drinks very much like a good IPA; dry, bitter, hoppy, grapefruit++
I was impressed!

Cask at the Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 25 October. Poured a clear, light golden colour with a rocky white head and good lacing. Aroma is mild citrus hop, gooseberry and candy sugar. Tropical fruit flavours with some orange peal and straw. Finish was caramel, syrupy fruit and chewy malt. Better than I had anticipated; pretty decent golden.
