3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Around this stage in proceedings of my Fork and Brewer Odyssey, Mrs Jimthechap began suffering GWS (Grumpy Wife Syndrome), or rather, I was suffering from GWS. Consequently my reviews became shorter and the surroundings less pleasant to be in.
Hazy amber with a whitish skim of head, good carbonation. Smells like a fragrant, hoppy ale and tastes like it too. Nothing wrong with this at all.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
An unusual, but ultimately underwhelming beer that is hop forward for sure - but lacks the body to back it up.
