3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Brew Wharf, 28/12/13.
Clear golden with a moderate white covering that retains well.
Nose is toasted malts, caramel, orange, bitter fruit notes, light hops.
Taste comprises orange, dull pine, faint metallic nip, toasted malt, some hops.
Medium bodied, carbonation is a little too prickly and overcooked, grassy bitterness in the cessation.
Drinkable and good to see at bars that aside from this only offer macro.
However things have moved on and whilst the was something I’d look for 7 or 8 years ago palates change and a whole host of new London brewers can offer much hoppier solutions to my drinkng needs.

On tap @ Kick Malt & Mat. Slightly hazy orange body with an OK off-white head. Quite light, but nice aroma dominated by citric fruit and a hint of pale malt. Flavor is light and refreshing pale malt, fruity, peaches and decent bitterness. Medium body with a decent aftertaste. Quaffable, smooth and well balanced session ale. Nice.

On tap in a pint glass. Clear golden pour with a bit of frothy white head. Aroma is OK. Floral and orange hop nose. Taste is kind of bland. Bitter with a bit of orange hop flavor. Crisp and light body. Carbonation was a bit over. Pretty boring and unimpressive.

Pint from Young’s Pub. Very decent beer, one of the more conventional beers from Meantime, however much better than the other options on tap in this establishment, including the Meantime Pilsner
