Nose is orange sherbet, bread dough, peach, straw. Taste comprises light peach, apricot, orange pith, citric sherbet. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a light hop profile. Decent bitter, nice opener to the bash.

Scopey 5K Tasting in deepest Croydonia. Cheers to the main man for this one. Lightly hazy amber beer, small white head. Smooth palate,.semi dry. Smooth malt, touch of cream. Mildly bitter citric hops and a somehow pleasing amount of twiggyness!! Finishes smooth. A tasty and well balanced bitter. Very drinkable.

Bottle cheers to Scopey the host for his 5k. A bright, hazy orange pour with a sticky white head. Nose is tangy oranges, zesty lime, slightly nutty and pepper forward. Taste is heavy toffee biscuit with a fair amount of toastiness, orange forward with some lemon rind on the end. Mild bitterness and a touch sweet throughout. Solid stuff

Bottle shared at the Scopey 5K tasting - big thanks to the host for this one. Pours hazy, golden-brown with a fluffy, white head. Sweet with moderate bready malts, ripe citrus fruits, light brown sugar. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with faint plastic notes, sugary bread. So so.

The taste is bitter, wood, earth, leather, citrus peel, caramel and orange rind with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Well rounded, nice hoppiness and rather drinkable. A rather nice bitter.
