500ml bottle. Pours dark golden with moderate head. Yeasty and slightly floral aroma. Sweet brown sugar flavours, light toast and mild floral notes offset with a good amount of bitterness, though itís the sweetness that carries through - perhaps a little too much. Very drinkable if not perfect.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
500ml bottle from Aldi.
Nice orange marmalade colour with thin white head and lacing which lasts.
Fresh, fruity aroma, probably more apricot than orange.
Sweet fruity, honey, sweet marmalade taste.
No great bitterness to finish but enough to strike a great balance.
A great find.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Aldi. This has lots of grapefruit going on. Then it morphs into marmalade/orange peel. Very bitter at finish. They should rename it "Soor Plooms"! (see Scots Dictionary)
Not bad though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask at cloisters:
Ruddy-orange pour, white head. British hop aroma, flavor of spicy british hops with a bready caramel backbone. Thin.
On cask (I believe) at the hanging bat:
Translucent orange, foamy white head. Aroma is of apricot, fruit, yeast; light and sweet. Flavor is of apricot, yeast, fruit and wheat.
Tasted like two very different beers. What gives?
