Bottle. Bright orange-gold with thick stable head. Aroma is gin-like with floral hop notes. Soft palate. Really lovely hoppy flavors here. the malts are richly smoky, toasty. The hops are lovely with citrus peel, bitter herbs, and dry flowers. Gorgeous!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle conditioned, 50cl, from Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon. Amber with a thick white head; fruity apricot aroma; slightly sour grapefruit flavour to start, rather like a kriek, then an explosion of intense chewy bitterness leaving a dry finish. Excellent.

500ml bottle. Pours a hazy blonde with some lively carbonation and a small white head. Aroma is suprisingly complex for the style: hops, citrus, sweet fruitiness, earthy, a some used bookstore. Sweet malt at the front of the tongue, some earthy bitterness on the finish, and a touch of peat and sourness. Medium body. Dry finish. Overall, delicious, fresh tasting and well balanced.
