3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Fresh earthy notes.
Appearance: Hazy golden body with a thick, white head. No carbonation. Gorgeous lacing.
Taste: Powerful earthy, lemony and slightly peppery hop flavour. Subtle pear drop flavours. Fyne Ales managed to source a rare German hop (Polaris) for this beer. Lovely lingering bitterness.
Palate: Medium body with a very oily texture. Flat carbonation.
Overall: As with all Fyne Ales’ beers, this is well balanced and very tasty, though I’ve had hoppier, punchier IPAs. Although the hops are from Germany, there’s a very British taste about this.
