2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer pours a orangey-amber color, slightly hazy crowned by a slim white head. Aroma is slightly sweet, but with a smoky undertone: noted earthiness, and...plums? Dry clean finish, texture is somewhat flat, but has a definite fizziness that leaves a slightly astringent feeling.

50 cl bottle. Head is quite huge, on top of a lovely clear amber. Aroma is fresh, floral, very well balanced and a real pleasure to drink. Given the fact that it’s one of the oldest recipes in the world and it’s a really good beer (those who love very bitter drinks might think otherwise, though) it’s worth buying and trying. My two cents: it’s much better than the current overall rating!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle from John Mays - Thanks! --- Floral wheat aroma, refreshing. Hazy medium amber color, white head that drops to a full cover, hanging strands of lace. Taste is malt and floral herbs and spice that adds light fizz and light hops on the way to a finish slowly moves back to malt and spice. A light brew, a little yeasty, too much of the herb/spice combo to be first rate.

I don’t understand the low rating on this one...I found it to be very good and I am a dark, heavy stout drinker so it really was a refreshing surprise for me.

Bottle at the Eagle and Child in Oxford. Spicy, reminded my of ginger, and had a good malt backbone. I wasn’t blown away by this - it was alright, but didn’t shout class to me.
