3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 11C. Amber with an off-white head. Modest aroma with caramel, grapes, oranges, pineapple, apple. Slightly watery. Sweetish with no middle; fruity flavours - apples, light tropical fruits, plainish citrus. Moderate bitterness, mild spices. On the one hand it’s not very exciting, on the other, the flavours mesh well.

Toffee-ish aroma. Flavour are quite the same, but it also brings caramel, citrus and some peach at the end. Body is medium with soft, suiting caronation. Still, it’s a bit avarage.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Stirchley Wines. Pours with minimal head, slightly hazy from fine sediment. Big fruit aromas - although these are tropical and juicy, they aren’t as overpowering as some mango & pineapple-scented beers - more of a rounded fruitiness. This comes through also in the flavour, and the hop elements seem very balanced, allowing some malt flavour through with a hint of herbaceous spiciness on the end. Good mouthfeel - not as one-dimensional as some single hop beers. First time I’ve come across this hop and I’d love to try more beers where it’s used either alone or in a blend. Seems to work well on it’s own though. Would certainly drink this beer again with pleasure.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Thanks Milan:
Big very vast and slow disappearing creamy cheesy head on top of a hazy bright but dark orange to bright amber colored beer.
Smell some hops, meal, porridge, light flowery, some pils ish malts, cream, yoghurt, not the typical ipa smell.
Taste is soft, light sparkling and a mix of a pils with a tad more hops and some yoghurt (not sour but in some way fresh/crispy) added which turns more and more into a lighter bitter and floral aftertaste.
Again not the typical IPA flavours,
There is a good malty backbone with some grassy bitterness and some light fruity (think grapefruit and red oranges) tints all by all packed in a creamy jacket.
Low to medium carbo, soft (very light tingly) mouthfeel, medium body and a creamy texture.
Kudo’s on this beers head, it never disappears and never changes into a lacing! Wunderbar!
