Aroma is rich malts, an earthiness and light funk. A nice spiciness and clove here. Taste is a complex full flavored maltiness with caramel, citrus, spices and earthiness. The floral notes balance well with the malts.light tanin on finish. Appearance is a lightly hazed gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

swampwater (66) - Preston, Lancashire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Aroma: Pine, coriander, and a whiff of hops.
Appearance: A deep gold, with suspended sediment. White head.
Taste: Pine, wheat, a touch of hops, and on overpowering flavour that I can’t quite pinpoint. It’s like a fruity wheat beer, with noticeable coriander and something else.
Palate: Sweet and fruity, with a slightly bitter finish. Medium body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: I’m a bit mixed on this one. It has a great aroma, and the taste is interesting. I wish I could pin down that overwhelming flavour.

GlassBrass440 (315) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 14, 2015
Pours a clear gold with a fluffy white head that just won’t go away. Very nice lacing on the glass. Spicy hops, with a slight citrus (lemon zest) note and a touch of alcohol. Flavour is of lemon candies and spicy phenols. An off sweet finish and slightly powdery mouthfeel, if that makes sense. The bitterness is quite restrained but there is a touch of astringency.

cityzen (153) - FRANCE - APR 11, 2015
Une bière a la belle couleur orangée, au gout complexe, on sent le caramel en entrée de bouche et une belle amertume vient fleurir dans l’arrière bouche. On note la fermentation en baril a whisky.
