3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. Minimally cloudy, golden colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, off-white head. Piney, resinous, herbal hoppy aroma, biscuity, caramel malty background. Taste is bitter, piney and citrusy hoppy, resin and lemon notes, malty body contributes... well, body; flat carbo contributes to a slightly insipid impression.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle @ home. Best before Jan 2015. Slightly hazy, amber colored, thin lasting white head. Gooseberries, grapefruit, herbs in aroma. Flavor has nettles, gooseberries, grapefruit, hint of caramel perhaps. Really dry bitter finish. Quite aggressive. Gooseberries are quite strong here. Thinnish body. Thirst quenching. I prefer a cleaner fruitier profile though.
