3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap pours golden with not much head. Not what I expected when ordering a pilsner. Aroma is of rosehip. Taste is of rosehip followed by a weird intermediate liquorice flavour then spices like cinnamon come through. Aftertaste of spices and Christmas pudding. Interesting but makes me belch a bit more than usual. Yup can taste the hops in that buuurp

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle. Pours a light orangey amber and clear, with a small white bubbly head that fades quickly to nothing at all. Aroma is orange and a little malty, with a little bit of old socks. Attack is crisp, with some wheat notes. Bitterness throughout with a strong, orange peel and hop finish. Some slight sweetness on the mid palate. Mouthfeel is pretty thin, and the taste does not linger terribly long. Carbonation is fine. Slight sourness developing on the mid palate and towards the finish. Not too bad, but not terribly complex either.
