2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a clear copper with a small beige head. Aroma is rather subtle, with English yeast, light fruitiness, and some bready malt. Flavour is very fruity, with notes of apple and pear upfront, followed by yeast and some dry but sweet finishing notes. Very low complexity. Not very interesting stuff.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks Ariel. Clear deep golden. Aroma is a bit anemic, with apricot, notes of other fruits and a bit of grainy hints. Slightly sweetish flavor with light graininess, a malty hint, some fruitiness and a finish with a hint of bitterness. Light to medium-bodied. Drinkable but pretty weak.
