3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from new Burbage Co-op: drinking it right now. Misted gold with a low white head. Rustic, fruity aroma suggesting Fruit Salad chews, farmyard and overripe strawberry. Deep nut husky bitterness overlaid with fruit salad and yeasty apple peel notes that are not obviously US or citrus-accented. Aftertaste of slightly smoked, pungent nuttiness. More hairs-on-chest bitter bitter than golden ale but pretty decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Cloudy orange headless ale with gentle carbonation. Grapefruit and ginger beer aroma. Bitter, dry and very hoppy grapefruit taste but well balanced with some citric sweetness. This is excellent.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Cloudy golden beer with a strong bubbly head. The aroma is roasted and sour, and the flavour is sour and bitter with yeasty elements. Overall a pretty disappointing beer.
