Hazed golden orange with a moderate off white covering that retains well.

CAN. Golden in colour with little head. Sweet on the nose with caramel butterscotch traits. Really sweet upfront with a sticky toffee like after taste, hides the alcohol very well.

GBBF Day 4. Bottle? Hazy gold beer, residual white head. Palate is light, dry and crispy. Light sweet malts, nice cream. Tangerine hops. Chilli spice starts to burn. Touch of mango. Light semi dry finish. Chilli continues to burn. Tasty but overspiced.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured an orangey colour with 5mm of off-white foam that diminished quickly to a collar that laced poorly. Carbonation very low and medium. Aroma of nice floral hops, malt and alcohol. Taste with moderate bitterness with alcohol strong on the after-taste. Medium body with a syrupy mouthfeel. Nice and moderately strong hops but the alcohol on the after-taste disappoints.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Clear amber with a white head. Aroma of caramelised pineapple, kumquat, pine, green capsicum. Sweet caramel, pine, green chile peppers, vague citrus. Bitterness struggles though and lands with a thud. Alcohol only sticks out at the end. Odd with a muddled finish. Didn’t much care for this one.
