3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg at CBC, London. Pours a lightly hazy, amber-brown with a foamy head. Poopey fruit, berries in the aroma, some pine, caramel. Very sweet flavor, toasty malts, bread, toasty sugar, light pine and ripe citrus. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming and sticky finish, more caramel, mild pine, fruits. OK beer. A little odd but decent overall.

Pours cloudy copper colour with small head. Aroma of lots and lots of fruits, apricot and orange peel, mild caramel and light syrup. Flavour of apricot, orange, caramel and distant syrup. Nice, but a bit too sweet.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Ølfestival 2011. A small, dense, off-white head sits on top of a clear, amber body. Canned tropical fruits mix, some alcohol, resin and pine cones on the quite sweetish nose. Sweet and fruity flavor with a decent bitterness. Well, I would like more bitterness, but there’s at least enough to prevent it from being unbalanced towards sweetness. Full-bodied, sweetish and pleasantly carbonated. Bitter and fruity finish. A decent beer, but a bit strange and boring. 110527

Dark clear amber with a thin white head. Soapy and chlorine with nectar and dough, leading to resinous orange peel and bready malts. Decent but not great.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Beer Temple. Glad I only ordered a small glass... Hazy orange colour, off white head. Aroma of ranja, sweet oranges and bitter grapefruit, hops. Flavour is very sweet, sticky, sweet oranges, ranja again, very bitter leafy grassy bitter finish. Medium to fullbodied. Undrinkable imo, way too harsh..

Cask Pub & Kitchen, post RBESG tasting. Light haze on this amber beer. Little white head. Light crisp palate. Pretty smooth pale malt, creamy. Well balanced orange hops. Lacto sweetness. Minerals. Crisp finish. Decent and managed to hold it’s own after the hop blizzard that was Magic Rocks Human Cannonball!
