Bottle at The Anderson. 19th taster out of 19 at the 3rd Annual Burns Festival. I expected this to be a distant memory following the volume of ale consumed before this final taster - but I was very wrong. This was up there at the top as one of the best on the day. Beautifully balanced, great taste of pine, the right amount of hop and a dash of pepper. Incredibly good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned at Harbury Beer Fest ’12. Hazy gold with no head. Very little condition to this, quite green, really bitter, like an unripened greengage. It does improve though, grapefruit notes show through, lasting and dry. One to try again.
