3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden coloured - didn't notice the "reddish tones" that others have remarked upon. Apart from that, I would say that the brewery description sums it up pretty well. Very crisp, clean and well made, with floral overtones. Dry, bitter finish. Slips down a treat. A very good beer from a very good brewery. Handpump, The Speaker, London SW1, September 2003

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml brown bottle with a BB date stamp of Jul 2016.
Pours with a bright body that is amber rather than red and is coated by a bubble off-white head. The head has good retention and leaves fine patterns of lacing on the glass.
Aroma: good but not striking in any way.
Flavor: more flavor than the aroma suggests, with plenty of medium malts and very well chosen hop counterparts.

Pours copper with a rosie hue. Aroma is thick golden syrup and a hint of toast (very enticing). flavour is not as pronounced as the aroma but very enjoyable and better as it warms up from refrigerated temperature.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hey its good and OK at the same time. Its also cool as fk and I like that. I like beer thatís good and cool and its cool because its a wee bit different and I like the branding and occasionally Iím a sucker for good branding. I like the bitterness, I like the colour, I like the concept but i,íve had better in the genre. Drinkable and good, great coolness for when your mates are over and really refreshing. Great brewery too.
