2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle picked up from Jacks, Westholme Stores, Goring on Thames, Oxon. Consumed at home, Sunday 2nd November 2014. Pours gold with a chill haze, white filmy head. I think the hops are a little quiet and shy here, both in mouth and on nose. Tangy, fruity and smooth, bitterness is picking up, perhaps I was being harsh on the hop front. I am not a big fan of this, some pithy lemon. Ok A6 A4 T5 P3 Ov11 2.9

Gravity at Bartons Arms, Bartons Arms, Bartons Arms, Birmingham. And so forth. Rather a delicious beer. Grainy PA, plenty of sidewalk hops, with a fawcet of plural clean grain and fender-bashing sunshine. Replete.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle: BBD 20 Dec 2014. bottled on 20 Aug 2014, bought and consumed at the Wild Card brewery and tap room on 13 Sep 2014. Poured a hazy light orange colour. Mild citrus notes to the grassy and fresh veg aroma. Took a while to like this, initial taste was meh, then it began to take off a bit with the malts coming out to play: some baked biscuit flavours along with a bitter orange hint turned it into a pleasant ’sunny’ beer.
