Bottle. A tan brown colour with a small head. Aroma of citrus and yeasty malt, bitterness evident even on the nose. Flavour fairly acidic with citrus and coriander, some hoppy notes. Aggressive carbonation giving way to a watery finish. Poor and not at all enjoyable.

5th May 2015: keg half-pint in Royal Oak somewhere in London. Red hue to the amber body, on top an off-white crown of foam. The nose had a mild malty aroma with some background earthiness. Taste, a blend of pale malts and slightly bittering hops: not as much going on as I hoped for. Not bland, but not flavoursome either.

On tap. Pours a nice clear ruby with a few beige bubbles. Aroma is slightly nutty malts, bread and hops. Wasn’t so keen on the taste as I found this rather stale. I’ll try a bottle and re rate.

Pours red with a tiny head, Found this surprisingly bland, pale malt dominates but little standout flavour or complexity.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Ariel’s friend! Clear red-amber. Aroma of skunky hops, slightly weedy, and some malt. Flavor has some sweetish malt, a bit toasty, hops, kinda skunky, a bit citric, and a dry bitter finish. Medium-bodied.
