Keg at The Bishops Arms, Copenhagen, Denmark. An amber/dark golden coloured pour with virtually no head to speak of. Sweet, cinammon, spice aroma. Tastes similar, sweet, cinammon, caramel, spice, orange and slightly boozy. Quite interesting and incredibly easy to drink.

Convoluted aroma. Nominal appearance. Absolutely awful flavor. Not much to say as I hated just about every aspect of this brew. Drain poured the majority of the beer. Tried with a friend that agreed with me.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Headless beer, so to speak, with lots of floaties (orange pulp?). Lovely aroma - minty, floral, citrusy, emulating US-hops style grapefruit rather well. Interesting spicy cinnamon note, in spite of it not being among the ingredients. The taste is unfortunately a mess. Sweet, thick-ish and alcoholic, not really aromatic, with a dry, herbal and very alcoholic finish. Amateurish and unpleasant. What a failed attempt.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a light amber gold with minimal head. Aroma is cinnamon and clove and other spices. Taste is more of the same. Sweet and syrupy up front with a thick mouthfeel. finish is bitter, but only subtly so. Very interesting. No more than one on a special occasion.

Bottle compliments of b-law. Very very unique aroma with cloves, carmdomon, slightly cinnimon and other peppery spices. Light bodied. Light bitter. Light sweetness. A sort of medicinal aftertaste. Good texture. Very unique taste and aroma. Have to try one.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very odd tangy nose with a lot of orange and a worrying amount of spray n wipe. Pours a debris daubed orange with a quickly disappearing head. The flavour is genuinely weird - notes of parma violets, parma ham and elderflower cordial. Thereís a fragrant, spring herb garden start and a decaying, dying herb garden finish. Some notes of bitterness come through and bear with them an astringency that leaves some acidity. Itís not a drain pour by any means, and faced with the challenge of a hopless IPA itís a good effort, but although Iím glad Iíve tried it to experience the competition and Iíll seek out the Brew Dog competitor, I wonít rush to seek this one out again.

Bottled. Hazy orange colour with..., without head. Aroma has citrus and orange notes, some rosemary and thyme hints. Flavor is sweet, mondarine and pumpkin traces, thyme traces as well. Sweet final with an herbal sensation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an orange amber with a small quickly fading white head. Aroma and Taste of spicy herbs, vegetables, some citrus fruity notes and bitter hops. Palate is medium body, smooth mouth feel with moderate carbonation. Finishes with sweet spices, herbs, and vegetable notes mild citrus fruity favors ending with a lingering slightly dry bitterness. Overall I felt it was a pretty interesting and good brew.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at pony bar HK. Pours a clear golden body with no head, thin white lacing. Aroma is coriander and maybe some other spices. Mouthfeel is horrific, artificial cleaner, soap, coriander. Good god. Highly offensive. Thank Christ I only sampled 5 oz because that in itself was a chore.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Terrible brew. It looks awful. Itís completely dead. Smell is very artificial. Taste as well, with artificial sweetness, something sour and....well, who cares. This oneís going down the drain.
