Bottle 14/7/13 with best before of 18/10/13 Poured darker than I thought it would, nice colour, thin lacing, light cream head. Nose is Very floral, Rosewater, Lychee, Turkish Delight. Good mouth feel, not over carbonated which I appreciate. Overall flavours are very similar to aforementioned aromas. If I tasted this blind I would not guess it was as high as 6.3%, it has great drinkability which makes me wonder if it would be better as a 5% "six pack" craft beer instead. Overall a good beer, and well worth a try.

Turkish delight with a bit of hops hidden underneath. Rose petal on the nose and pours darker than I expected. If I drink lots of this will it make my piss smell nice?

A deep hue of dark amber with a thin off white head. Crisp fruity floral nose, quite light. Nice thick mouthfeel. Sweet nutty malts, little bit of citrus hopping, nice long bitter aftertaste.

On tap at Archive. Vibrant colour, full hop aroma and flavour and long resinous finish. All round goodness in a glass.

Dull gold body with lasting head. Rose character doesn’t dominate aroma and taste but masks this IPA somewhat, almost making it a little bit bland. Still drunk it easy enough, no real zing on the finish to make you want more.

This looks for all money like an innocuous, approachable pale ale and then you smell it: turkish delight and rosewater predominate. In fact they overcome any malt or possible hop aromas. Not that this is a terribly bad thing. Good carbonation gives a lovely filling mouthfeel and then there’s the full on flood of rosewater. This is an interesting variation of beer, but not one that calls for a second pint if I’m honest.
