2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught at GBBF08. High carbonation. Cloudy amber colour. Big stable creamy off-white head. Citric flavour. Strange bitterness. I wonder if this is intended.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A Mes rate: draught at GBBF.
Clean dark gold with a thin but stable white head. Really pleasant summer fruits on the nose with some solid grassy hoppage. Similar flavour with a slight, but totally unexpected hint of germoline. Clean bitter finish. Tasty and so much better on draught.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the barrel - GBBF2008. A golden lager with a wisp of off-white head. The aroma is peachy and grassy, with maybe a little banana. Grassy hops in the mouth with some buttery malts, and again, some banana. Lacks body.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(swing top bottle) Hazy, orange-amber colour with a big and lacing off-white foamy head. Moderately sweet, strawy cara-malty nose with a fruity tinge and a slightly spicy and almost nettle-like hoppy touch. Sweet flavour with light hints of bitterness, light to medium bodied with a pleasant and soft carbonation on the palate. Cara-malty, minimally yeasty taste, faintly fruity taste with light herbal notes; medium-dry, sweet-bitter finish with a lightly herbal and spicy hops-character.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Pours out in a clear pale amber colour with a rich and really lively foam. Buttery malty aroma with notes of freshly cut grass and crackers. Malty buttery and nutty firm flavour with fresh minerally and grassy undertones. Solid body. Grassy and mild peppery finish with biscuity undertones. Pretty nice one!
