3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg, third pint at The Cock Tavern. Filmy layer blanketing the glass. Next to clear amber coloured body. Mild aromas of dried fruits and earthy malts. Likewise, the taste profile is made up by dried fruits, and earthy malts. Fruit bitter ending. Soft and dry on the swallow. Pleasing (Hackney, London 13.07.2014)

14th July 2014
Cock Tavern. Keg. Lightly hazy gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and a little crisp. Light airy malt, fluffy cream. Hops are a lovely combination of mild citric peel, floralness, mild lime and subtle tropical fruits. Finishes airy with a touch of sweet ester. Citric peel bitterness lingers on. Tasty and very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at the Cock Tavern, London. Pours clear, rich gold with a foamy, white head. The aroma has jammy citrus and moderate pine. Medium sweet avor with dirty pine, toasted grass, light earth, lots of orange rind, light marmalade. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation and somewhat oily texture. Fairly resinous on the finish with more jammy citrus, orane, general rind, pine, light grainy bread. Not bad.
