3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Classic oily hopsack nose a la Church End. That flowery, resiny hop/ honeyish- yeasty balance again. Very aromatically hoppy. A definite nibble of rose. Rolls around the mouth oozing bread, honey and floral hops. Great ’length’, as they say. Just the right parting bitterness. A very cheeky specimen.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden with a thin white head. Sweet malty aroma with a dash of citrusy hops. Flavor is soft and malty ... burtonized water, perhaps? Light carbonation, malty flavor with a nice rounded citrusy hop finish. Not bad. Similar to the Wychewood brews I’ve had.

Small bitterness in the flowery aroma. Very clear, orange colour. Thick foam. Complex bitterness which exaggerates itself in the finish. Flowers, nuts and grass. Yummy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Huge offwhite creamy head shrinks quickly towards a copper body. Complex, harmonic aroma of floral hops, honey, rubber, and wet paper. It’s good, but there is some not so good mixed in. Taste is deep, flowery honey, with smoky, citric notes, and touches of paper. Aftertaste is dry papery malts. Slightly lacking in body. Not at all bad. (0.5l bottle.)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, in honor of that Scotish Socialist, reid. Long live Socialism, that most successful of the various forms of government. Pours a nice witish yellow-orange with a nice head and lacing. Aroma is straight-up lemon with hints of rose. Flavor is a floral lemon flavor with bits of thistle, or at least a flavor that reminds me of what a thistle would taste like if I had ever tasted one. Mouthfeel is full. Nice beer; a definite repeat as well as a mouth-puckerer.
