3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
September 6, 2014 - on handpull at (Craft Clerkenwell??). Clear and bright light gold, slightly oily-looking, lasting white head. Floral golden ale aroma, but unwelcome hints of paper and oil paint. Taste is all lemon and lemon grass - delicately floral and grassy in behind, not much alcohol - surprisingly nice (7+). Light body and astringency, decent cask carbonation, finishes quick and crisp, a dry lemony linger.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Pours orange-yellow in colour with a white head and a lot of effervescence. On the nose: slightly musty, lemony, earthy aroma with a slight ginger spicyness. Sweet to taste with a gentle bitterness. Flavours of fruit and spice, the ginger is nice and subtle. Ends dry and with a good, lemon tartness. Chilled on a warm day, a very pleasant and refreshing beer.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle BBE: 16.1.16. Well-chilled. Pours a cloudy pale amber with no head and floaters. Medium intensity aromas of honey, ginger, orange peel and earthiness. A little tart to begin, with a moderate sweetness following up. Flabby, lacking bitterness. Light-bodied, watery, insipid, fizzy, earthy ginger finish. It’s different, granted, but this is not an experiment to follow-up on.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, best before 2015-05. I should probably have read the label before buying this. Light hazy yellow with a large frothy white head. Nose has a lot of ginger, lemongrass and spices which also goes for the flavour. Some flowers and hay too. Light bodied with lively carbonation, pretty refreshing. I will never be a fan, but I guess it’s good for what it is.
