3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium orange with an average sized (1-2 finger) white fluffy head that had great retention, eventually reducing to a thick film with a medium collar which created some excellent sheets of lacing.
The aroma was of a cereal malt, citrus and floral hops and a sweet earthy yeast with notes of citrus (grapefruit peel), caramel, oats and a mild fruity ester (peaches).
The taste was mildly sweet and a tad bitter with a mild fruity sweetness and a hint of caramel early on, becoming a bit hoppy and rather creamy (due to the oats, Iím sure) with a bitter citrus peel presence towards the end. The flavor stuck around for an extremely long time with a strong bitter citrus taste that laid on the taste buds for what seemed like forever.
Mouthfeel was just beyond light in body and had a nice creamy dry texture with a medium carbonation.
Overall a very tasty, quite drinkable creamy brew with a mild ABV. This is a great session brew with a nice bold bitterness...

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours very carbonated golden with a couple fingers of fine creamy foam. Nose is nice, grapefruit, peach, pine, sweet malts, hints of honey and oranges. I like this nose a ton. Flavor is plenty bitter with some biscuit malts, some gun powder flavors, a bit of tea and oxidation - too bad the flavor doesnít meet the presence of the aroma. Medium bodied with moderate carb and an off dry finish, a little too dry for the style IMO. Nice beer, could use some tweaks here and there.
Serving type: can

On tap. Pours a hazy orange with a thick white head. Aroma of light fruits, pale malts. Flavor of salted, buttery popcorn. Literally like licking the bottom of a bag of popcorn. Itís hard to get much else. Yikes this is not good.

Some nice fruit and grass character in the aroma. Pours a clear straw color with a nice pillow head and good lacing. Smooth a nice bitterness and malt character a touch of creaminess assuming from the oats and a touch of hop character. This is pretty tasty

3/28/13. Sampled during CBC 2013. Orange pour with a small khaki head. Really digging the aroma on this guy. Lots of citrus, orange, lemon, grapefruit, touches of pine, grass, and a nice malt balance. Slightly more lackluster flavor, lighter citrus and more malt presence. Smooth texture, but the oats donít stand out overwhelmingly to me. Tasty.

Can at Croydonia Tasting thanks to Colin. It pours cloudy pale golden orange with a medium white head. The nose is fresh orange, passion fruit, piss, tangerine and grapefruit. The taste is full of citrus...orange, grapefruit, pithy lemon, straw, hay, pine and decent bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Lots of clean citrus. Very easy drinking stuff.
