Mild take on the style by any interpretation. Buzzy metal flavours and old skool hops show some early promise but soon fades away. Hard to see a compelling case.

Slightly too fizzy, light hops aroma, taste is a little bland. Solid enough but certainly nothing special.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle) Clear deep, slightly ruddy, golden with almost no head. Gentle interesting aroma with a mix of fruitiness, herbs and a slight flintiness. Light body with good carbonation. Light fruity start with little sweetness developing into a rather aggressive hoppy bitterness, which to me seemed to lack the complex tastes and was somewhat dull and aggressive. Pleasant enough, but doesn’t really do it for me.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Interesting pour. Slight difference in colour from top to bottom. Amber a peak, gold below. Light on nose. Bit of nutty flavour, almost a hint of red wine. Even a cherry finish. Slight bitterness. Nice drop.

Rusty gold in colour with a thin lasting white, fruity aroma, lingering bitterness with crisp taste. Not too bad at all.

Pours a grumsy lighr brown colour with a small white head. Biscuits and caramel on the nose, also some earty hints. Flavour is quite the same. Light body with a soft palate. Nothing to be excited about, but a well balanced beer. Overall, it’s an okey beer, nothing more.

Bottle. Cloudy red-gold, medium head. Sweetish nose of fruity hops, berries, some earthiness. Mouthfeel is smooth but a touch over-carbonated. Nice tart finish. Very pleasant.
