Shared by Lunch. Thanks man! The beer is orange with a half inch of white head. The aroma brings some earth and pine notes, followed by light citrus and biscuits. A bit more grainy and malty than expected, but tasty nonetheless. Herbal and grass notes with a dash of floral hops. Solid.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Leighton. Hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and airy. Mild fine carbonation. Soft airy malt. Nice hops - fresh orange, orange peel with a little grapefruit and floral sweetness. Turns medium bitter with tropical fruits making an appearance. Finishes light with a long bitter linger. Nicely put together.

Boittle thanks to a bro
Pours a hazy gold color with a good head and hie lacing on the glass.

The atom aid a bunch of tropical fruit and citrus rind. It’s fresh and hoppy with some mild floral and alcohol notes.

The flavor has a nice level of bitterness with a lot of fresh hoppiness, some passion fruit and melon being the stars of the show, It’s nicely dry and lightly boozy.

cool

Bottle massive thanks to Leighton. It pours hazy golden with a medium off-white head. The fresh, pine, brioche, orange sponge cake, grassy edge, earth and marmalade. The taste is crisp, bitter, orange peel, grapefruit, soap, bready, resin, mild astringency and pine needles with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Crisp, bitter and very drinkable. Good hop burp.

Medium sweet flavor, further pale and bready malts, light sun-kissed grass, melon, some rindy bitterness. Medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Finishes with some dirty grass, orange rind, mellow sweetness. Pretty nice.

BMMillsy (1655) - Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle from Joe in a nice little trade. Thanks! Pours hazy golden orange with a one plus finger fluffy white head. Floral and perfumy aromas with grass hop funk, light citrus rind, seems to have an interesting peppery farmhouse thing going on. Flavor is very light malts with lots of perfumy floral hops, bitter on the tongue and extremely dry with a long dry finish. And interesting hop profile here that isn't in your face bitter citrus but present in a way I am no familiar with. Light bodied with owl plenty if carbonation alongside its dryness. Good beer and somewhat unique. Glad I finally got a hold of some Lawson's.
