AshtonMcCobb (4067) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - bright orange with a generous head. Actually a bit of a gusher. Nose - sherbet a bit too much, but there are citrus hops in there too. Then light funky. Taste - oranges, actually going into burnt oranges. Palate - medium to full bodied with a tangy texture and a dry but slightly too fizzy, eluding to a wild yeast issue. Overall - is this a barley wine? But there’s a wild yeast issue.

500ml bottle thanks to Ashton McCobb. Gusher! Pours coat golden with a massive rocky head. Aromas of sherbet, probably a bit of wild yeast. Taste is oranges, marmalade, funk again. Too fizzy. Sweet finish.

Cask conditioned at Leicester Beer Festival ’15. Gold with white head. There is a big, peachy alcohol flavour right from the start, full on the palate, challenging, fruity. Good stuff.
