2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ Rocca, South Ken. The pour’s gold with a medium white head. The nose is paper, some apples. General sugary sweetness. Somewhat skunky. The aromas suggest I’m in for a faded beer. The taste confirms it: cardboard, general skunkiness. A bit of grain, sweet pear juice. Light body, fizzy carbonation. Overall, a shame. I’ll try to seek a fresh sample out on cask.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dec 2012 - bottle in Franco Manca. Taste is somewhere between a pale ale and a lager, not a lot of bitterness but a bit floral. Was average to poor overall really. With a name like that, it should have delivered more.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Franco Marca in Brixton. Golden colour, quite fizzy, head vanishes. Unusual beer, very hoppy for a lager (on the menu as pale ale!!?) Sweetish citrus hops, maybe pineapple. Lacks a bit of depth, finish is very brief. Nice enough for a change.
