2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Markhaven Summer Fun 2012. Hazy amber with a lasting white head. Herbal and grassy aroma, obviously from the tea, with a hint of malt and citrus in the background. Sweetish flavour with odd spicy and herbal notes, and a drying finish

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and fully diminishing head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel with light tropical fruitiness and some grapefruit - piney hoppyness, light herbal spiciness (mate - caffeine?). Body is medium, malty and sweetish, some caramel and light tropical fruitiness, light grapefruit and piney hoppyness, light herbal spiciness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish with light caramel and light tropical fruitiness, some piney hoppyness, some sharp herbal spiciness, light alcohol. Finish has too much sharp herbal spiciness. IPA + mate = why?

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle. Clear orangey deep golden colour with average foamy firm lacing white head. Fruity aroma with mandarin, citrus, lemongrass - late the mate explicitly shines up. Taste has trouble to present some fruit notes before an initially tolerable bitter note gains weight, that almost ruins the taste in the end by drowning everything else in a flood of soap and unpleasant acerbity. Demands habituation. Therefore the "almost".

10th May 2012
Bottle from Olbutikken, Copenhagen, shared with Lorna, Paul and Jason in my hotel room. Light haze on this amber beer, small white head. Palate is light and a little dry. Subtle floral notes. Mild citrus, a little minerally orange. Something else going on that is hard to pin down which I guess is the Yerba Mate. Dry finish. Interesting beer without being particularly moorish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, thanks to Ken at a pre-Sour & Bitter hotel tasting. It pours golden orange, with a thin white head. The nose is sweet orange, tangerine, mango, floral, spice and herbal notes (Yerba Mate?). The taste is floral, citrus pith, straw and herbal notes akin to matcha tea, with a bitter-dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Doesn’t do much for me....
