3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Beer Gonzo webshop, Earlsdon, Coventry. Consumed at home Friday 5th February 2016 Rich blood red on the pour with a sticky light beige head that is a clinger to the glass. Another beer that has a real thick and substantial mouthfeel, an almost zingy clean toothpastes feel in the way that this attacks the gums. A little hoppy malty, toffee good hoppy burst with a punchy resinous burst. Like this, bit malty maybe but the hops cut through well. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

Deep red/brown pour with thin off white head. Sweet, sticky malts, with a juicy, resinous hop bite. Decent, but a bit of an off after taste for me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from BottleDog, Edinburgh. Attractive ruby body with a dense beige head. Good lacing. Aroma of honey, lemon, blackcurrant and Earl Grey tea. Flavour of syrup, roasted malt, plum and blood orange. Thin to medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Evil Twin brew well balanced, flavoursome beers - this is delicious. It reminded me of Ayinger Celebrator (a different beer style, I know).
