3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Kick. It’s an unclear orangey brown beer topped by a dense, finger-thick light beige head. Orangey, resiny nose with a toffee-ish, almost coffee-like touch. Hints of liquorice too. Very bitter, in a pleasant way, with toffee and coffee in the back. Resins and pine cones. Medium to full body, quite dry. Lasting finish with lots of bitterness. A quite pleasant one, but lacking a bit on balance, although I understand that’s not the goal. 130117

Keg at the Catford Bridge Tavern. First of all thanks to the missus (who once worked for a paint firm) for coming up with an exotic colour for this brew and thanks also to Reuben for the share!
Dark sienna red pour with a fluffy white head. Strong berry aroma- raspberry, redberries with hints of red apple. Fruit burst on the palate. Flavours of orchard fruit, raspberries and blackberries with a hint of caramel. Nice bitter edge. Damned fine stuff.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at Euston Tap. Dark red brown. Small off-white head. Aroma is resinous hops, strong, cat pee astringency. Taste is nice, nice bitterness, but of spice, some citrus in there, lemon and lime and most of all grapefruit. But like curious but tougher. But of a puckerer.
