2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
26th January 2010
On tap somwhere! Slightly hazy amber beer. Thick frothy biscuit coloured head. The head makes the beer quite light and airy. Fruity, a little orange and citrus. Finishes with seltzer like minerals and still light and frothy.

Bottle in the rake. Alround rating: Dusty yeast, noteably plastic off the bottle conditioning, nutty malt, dry hopping. Its typically failed british bottle conditioning.

Bottle@The Rake (BB 09/2009).
Hazy orange color, floating yeast, good off-white head. Citrus, yeast and some papery notes in the aroma. Dry but same time fruity flavor. Citrus-orange with some yeasty notes. Lingering dry bitterness. Not the most exiciting bitter, but ok.

500ml bottle, nice floral hop nose but way too gassy and a slight metallic taste. Otherwise a decent bitter.

Cask at the Rake Welsh Festival, 1st March 2009. Standard amber looks. Lots of grassy hop on the nose, bit funky. Quite thin palate. Usual light ale flavour but this is too flawed to be a great beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark golden pour with a strong white ring. Rather shy nose is owned by tart grainy cereal malts that develop more sweetness than you would expect in mouth. Herbal flavours will eventually clash in it, but you eventually doubt that they are a flavour from the hops as the sweetness keeps on and on, into a poor sticky finish. Not sessionable, that’s for sure.
