4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
29th April 2013
Euston Tap. Hazy gold beer, little white head. Palate is crispy and light. On paper this looks a mess. Lemon, chilli and whisky BA. Well it’s a really nice blend of lemon, not too sharp, lovely mellow whisky and a little vanilla wood barrel. Finishes dry and crisp with mellow chilli providing extra dimension without even coming close to being overdone. An inventive beer that it very interesting but also highly enjoyable!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2014-10-24. Clear bright orange body with a moderate frothy off-white head. 3+ Mild fruity hop aroma, lemon character, my notes on the aroma are limited unfortunately. Average to light bodied palate. Flavour is pleasant, hoppy citrus and lemon, lemon peel. There is a lightly astringent quality to the lemon, and a lingering bitterness in the finish. Enjoyable, but grabs at the throat a bit when I leave it and come back to it. Decent. On cask at Cask Days, Toronto.

Keg @ The Lyric. Hazy amber with a tiny head. The aroma’s lemon, sweaty armpit, some mandarin orange. Hints of butterscotch candy. General spice rack. Quite herbal, some tequila. The taste has more vanilla. Eucalyptus. Plenty of herbal hops. Lemon peel. Wood. Sorbet. Medium body, smooth. Soft carbonation. Overall, certainly unique stuff. Interesting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Keg in The Lyric, Soho. Colour is cloudy gold, thick white foam head. Nose is strange. Creamy, lemon, lemon curd, sugary meringue, wheat grain husk, orange juice and something very floral and vegetal. Taste is creamy lemon curd, limoncello liquer, wheat malt, lemon juice, orange. Not getting any chilli at all, but maybe a touch of that vegetal chilli/pepper minerally freshness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Keg at the Euston Tap - London. Pours hazy gold with a fine, creamy white head. Dry lemon and other citrus in the nose, hints of white wood, hay. Medium sweet flavor with subtle barrel notes, some orange citrus, mld tangerine, pale malts, nip of alcohol. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. The chillies come through more in the finish, but they aren’t so powerful as to be obnoxious. Well integrated spiciness. Some dry black pepper. A bit of boozy warmth mixed with peppery heat in the throat. Still some further dried out citrus fruits, mostly orange, lemon and tangerine, with suggestions of grapefruit. On paper this beer beer really shouldn’t work as well as it does. A creative recipe executed very well. A mature beer.
