2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle. Golden color, lasting white head. Malty aroma with some hops and hay. Strange grainy, bitter flavor with some odd fruity notes -- like shampoo? Can’t say this one is a favorite.

Bottle. Orange colour with a small white head. Malty aroma with hints of hops. The flavour is malty, fruity, hoppy and slightly bitter with some sweetness. A bit thin, but not a bad beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Chaucer’s Pub- Deep golden pour with a frothy and long lived lacy top. On the nose, I get heavy grains, some hay, pale malts, some grassy hops. Tastes really grainy....in an odd sort of way. Sweet malts meet some sharp grassy hops, some soapy flavours too. Towards the finish, lots of grains again, to the point of this being not all that great. A strange dank funky taste is left in my mouth as well. This one is not for me.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Smokeless Joe’s. Beautiful copper-orange with a very small head. Mild aroma of hops and some grain. The flavour is mild as well, leaning toward the sweet malt, but the hops are there also, along with some slight fruitiness. Clean finish. Body is quite thin. Not exciting or complex, but very drinkable.

Bottled 50cl. It pours a clear deep golden beer with a small head. The nose reminds me a bit of a non alcoholic beer. Some breakfast cereals and honey showing up in the taste. Slightly hoppy. Sour. Dry finish. Watery and poor.
