3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at The Draft House, Tower Bridge, London at 8.6% ABV. Clouded amber with white head. There is an initial light toffee’d note to this, fortunately not overly so and it is soon enveloped by a smooth general fruitiness. The hops are there, I liked to think of Norwegian Spruce, slightly resinous. On the whole it is easy on the palate and very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Mother Kelly’s, Bethnal Green on 17 Oct. Poured a hazy, deep golden colour, with a thin white head. Aroma of butterscotch, rye and violets. Toffee sweetness in the flavour, with some hay and flowery notes. Finish had some light lingering hop bitterness, biscuity malt and brown sugar. Seemed to have lost its hoppy edge somewhat.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rich and yielding. Smells weakly of a pleasant graininess with hints of newly harvested hay and some fruit. The taste is hoppy with an accent of liquorice, hints of broccoli which stay until far out in the aftertaste. Feels healthy, as it gives the impression of a powerful vegetable.
With the sediments at the bottom of the bottle, the taste gets more complex - some milder malt notes, and a sharper hoppiness.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at Draft House, 8.5% version. Golden orange, clear, sparkling, big white head. Aroma is mostly sweet caramel, rye spiciness. Body is medium, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste is syrupy caramel, boiled sweets, resin, pepper, tangy and dry. Big flavour but it’s a got a little too much toffee apple sweetness for me. Decent anyway.

Tap at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass deep golden, nice head. Hoppy-fruity aroma. Starts fine malty, mild hoppy, flowery, fruity notes of lemon. Finish less fruity, dry, light bitter notes. Not bad!
