Cask at Project X. Lighter mouthfeel, not significantly bitter but nicely drinkable. A break from more edgy beers. Nice just not the style. Brewed at GL.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
June 24, 2011 - House Ales Launch event at Volo: gravity cask. Almost murky orange with an average creamy/frothy off-white head. Mild aroma, a bit floral, dry wheat ... not bad, just a bit light. Taste follows, some thick gluten and orange peel, no alcohol, well balanced with its hit of dry floral bitterness. Thick, somewhat still, dry and a bit astringent --- quick finish. Not a world-beater, but a refreshing if undemanding quaff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2011 Deep golden-orange pour. Very fruity tropical nose with both orange/mango as well as some blackberry and raspberry hop (Northern Brewer/brambling Cross perhaps?). Fruity and very zesty with a bright hop bitterness on the back of the softly sweet malts. Very fresh tasting - I could drink a million of these.
Cask. Hazy amber-gold pour. The aroma is nice. Light bready/crackery malts with a bit of yeasty body. Lightly sweet but balanced by a nice sticky herbal hoppiness. A little bit of earthiness and some light citrus as well. Juicy and spicy - a pretty solid bitter really - very sessionable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint at Volo. Poured a murky light brown with decent head. Aroma is light hops, some caramel malt. Taste is pleasingly bitter with a very interesting floral, citrus note in mid palate. Finish is sufficiently bitter and the beer overall is very flavourful considering the relatively low alcohol. Quite sessionable. Well done Ralph.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2012 [3569-20110128] Cask. Fresh light tangerine peel aroma. Hazy, dark orange body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. Smoothly lemon peel and orange juice flavour has a lingering green twiggy bitter orange after-pulp. Medium body. Wow, great soft orange characteristics and a lovely palate. Would definitely like to see this again, perhaps aged a little. (7/3+/9/5-/16) 4.0

[4858B-20121011] Cask. Light banana note and grainy fruit in the aroma. Slightly hazy, light orange brown body with a medium-lasting quick foamy white head. Bitter light apple grains flavour. Medium body. Good, quite different from my previous rating though. (6/3/7/3/14) 3.3
