4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
6.6%ABV. Vienna IPA.
Tapped out a deep amber. 18ºSRM.
Nose has clean sweet fruity flavors. Very subtle in its overall character. Enticing and very approachable. There are subtle pine and citrus aromas. Again, maybe like sniffing a ripe cold Valencia orange. A very nice candy-like sweetness to the nose. The malty nose is like what you’d get from a fresh piece of vaporous multigrain toast.
Mouthfeel is sudsy, bordering on soapy. Very approachable palate with nice dark malt flavors in abundance riding on a neat alcholic cloud. There is the flavor of black bread, pumpernickel tanginess, toffee and caramel. There is a brief hint of some medicinal herbs.
Finish is clean and long with the following flavor sequence: pine, grass, citrus, resin, hyssop all the way to the very best and brightest bitter end!
Goes on Favorites List!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask in the Magic Rock Tap in Huddersfield. Amber with a nice dense off white head. Not a huge amount of aroma - mild pine hop. The taste is really fruity with bitter resinous pine hop and a lovely biscuity malt base. There’s orange in there too. Very good.

Deep golden color. Very clean malty nose with the Vienna malt really shining. Mouth is smooth medium, but this beer is all about the Vienna malts.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cask. Huddersfield Oktoberfest 2015. Chestnut brown with a thin tan head. Nose is burnt tangerine, kumquat, a little lychee. Taste is surprisingly light, giving some more fresh kumquat and lychee. There’s a over ripeness to the orange taste, but not unpleasant. Very very nice. Belies its ABV.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On keg at Bundobust. Nice stuff. Looks cloudy amber/blond. Not as "fruity" and more dry and grassy than Cannonball. Quite dank though, sprucey, and pinappley. Dig it.
