In bottle. Pours a light golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of lemon, grassy hops, yeast, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Lingering lemon and candy sugar. Nicely bitter.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle. Pours cloudy orangey-brown with a generous head. The nose has salt, nuts and touch of cream. The taste has more salt and wheat with a nutty finish. The palate has more the texture and body of a Belgian Dubbel - very tangy and yeast dominated. There is also good hop bitterness. Overall, not sure this is a bitter but it is a good beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a nice amber orange with a big thick white head that doesn’t move, it certainly looks the part. Aroma is a tad thin, a little dusty, caramel comes through, some zest, light spicy pepperiness. Taste is very spicy, bit like a Belgian, very peppery, lots of deep caramel and a slight nuttiness. Fairly sweet with a long but well measured bitter finish. It’s very nice but not really my style
