(Keg at Oljenkorsi, 20140226) The beer poured deep golden and almost clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, nettles and mildly malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, nettles, grass, herbalness, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A nice brew with pleasantly interesting hop profile.

Beese (1082) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2014
Draft from BrewDog Shepherd’s Bush opening night on 29 November 2013. Poured a hazy yellow with a scummy white head. Aroma of grassy hop, light sugary sweetness and peardrops. Initial flavours of melon, sherbet and cereal. Finish was peaches, burnt sugar and some pine bitterness. Drinkable pale ale, but I just tend to find that these NZ hops are too delicate to make for truly scrummy pales...
