3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at King Willliam IV, Leyton. The aroma is weak but malty and spicy. The flavour is bitter peppery dry spicy and with sour notes on the palate. Well deserving of its high rating.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Attractive red-brown color, frothy off-white head. The aroma is quite hoppy and sweet. The taste is certainly bitter, but balanced with a fruity sweetness. The mouthfeel’s pleasingly constructed. Nicely carbonated, medium mouthfeel. Overall, this is quite good. It’s not Magic Rock’s premier offering, but certainly worthy.

On draft @ HaandBryggeriet Beer festival 2012. Hazy deep orange body with a small off-white head. Very nice hoppy aroma of grapefruit, pine and some oranges. Flavor is sweet, bitter and citric fruity with grapefruit and pine on a caramel malt base. Relatively light bodied, still strong in flavor and a fine bitterness. A bit more bitterness in aftertaste. Very nice and impressive at this ABV.

Sampled cask @ Borefts 2014. Thank you! Murky brown, tanned bubbles. Smell is nicer than taste, rich malt, caramel, sugar. Taste is a bit muddled & weak, oily, malt, sugar, caramel, leaves, tad watery, mocha. Lower carbonation, okay for sure but could be better.

Keg at The Southern. Pours clear reddish-brown with a chunky white head. Herbal hops aromas, and the lemon end of citrus too. Some caramel. Sweetness first on the tongue, but then lots of hop bitterness. A touch too fizzy for me, but a very nice beer overall.
