3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, 355ml from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Hazy gold to amber with white head. Some pine like, spruce notes on opening, the beer itself was slightly sweeter than the aroma suggested. Grassy hops push through the lighter, fruity body, fresh, some hay, some herbs. Reasonable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Copper golden with a huge, nice and creamy head, that leaves huge islands of foam, a thick lace and nice curtains on the glass. The aroma has nice and fruity hoppy notes with lots of citrus, papaya, mango, spruce and malt, that gives hints of caramel. The flavour is very nice and harmonic. The fruity hops are the main part with the same delicious notes as in the aroma combined with a nice caramel base. It’s a truly delicious beer!

courtesy of fiulijn - cloudy dark amber-orange colour with a solid but chaotic beige foam; unclean nose, fairly hoppy aroma with notes of flowers, cream and hints of fruits in the background; rounded and full-bodied; solidly bitter; very long flowery hoppy finish, quite dry - a solid and straightforward brew
