3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft - Orange, but not sweet and a bit of spice. Clear gold with a thin head. Mandarin orange, but again not sweet but almost like a sweet potato. Not bad. I like the fact it’s not sickeningly sweet.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Gar Eden. Initially thought this might be the Valencia wheat under a different name, but on drinking it, there doesn’t seem to be any wheatiness there. Golden coloured, small white head. Aroma is full of orange, bit of malt at the back, but mostly orange, slightly perfumey too. Taste is similar, very full on orange, little bit of sweetness, feels boozier than it is. Orange taste is pretty good, not at all syrupy. Decently bitter. It’s pretty nice but somehow not so exciting.
