1/2 at the Tilley Stone Gateshead. Hazy brown with a dense white head. Vaguely citrus aroma. Standard malty brown bitter flavour with a good bitterness, but a strange synthetic aftertaste. I didn’t enjoy it.

Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a slightly hazy dark amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is fruity leading to a medium to weak bitter flavour with some malty notes and bags of fruit through into the palate and the aftertaste. A great session ale.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted this in The Prestwick Pioneer, Prestwick (JDW) in February 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale russet in colour with a thick foam white head. Strong earthy sulphurous note in the rich aroma - a bit like Belhaven 80/. Thin resiny mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malt gives a burnt digestive biscuit note with a soft toffee edge which fades fast. Dry hop resins give a strong earthy loam flavour in the lasting aftertaste. Finish is malty and has a note of redcurrant fruit in it. An ok session bitter but nothing outstanding though.
