3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Atypical bitter in that it is apparently made with wheat. Thin, off-white, sticky head, warm and pretty bronze colour, clear. Somewhat strange aroma of iron, bitter honey, tomato, parsley, grass and caramel. Dry mineral-like onset, restrained fruitiness, some caramel malts in the background, vaguely sourish hint, bit metallic, finishing in mild grassy hops but also a bit watery. Unusual for its style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Morrison in Cowes shared with McTapps. Crispy and malty start with some nuts in the back. Easily drinkable with malt in the middle and ending. Remiding me of a german dunkel or a malty alt. Bit one sided but brewed with love. Good one.
