3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled@HBF2014. Hazy deep amber colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, mildly spicy along with some metallic notes. Also some yeast and herbs to it. Flavour gets quite similar, and gets much bolder when pouring the yeast in. Felt kind of thin and "empty" without yeast. Thin and alcoholic without the yeast, but quite balanced and bodied with the yeast in.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (HBF2014, Friday)
Yeastier glass had coffee grounds, clearer glass had clove. Same in taste too - lots of clove and christmas spices. A touch yeasty, but not offensively so. Doesn’t say 10%, even though the vapours are quite heady as you swallow. Maybe an overrate as I’m just pleased to have a half-decent beer after the two previous flops by them.
