3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
27th November 2011
Light haze on this darkish amber beer. Big fluffy white head. The head has a startling garlic flavour! Palate is smooth, a little soft and slightly dry. Creamy malt base - mild. The Apollo follows the head with more garlic and just a whisper of citrus. Finishes semi dry. Never had such a garlic led apollo beer!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled (thanks Papsoe!). Slightly hazy amber colour, small slightly off-white head. Aroma is burnt rubber, some slight cloakwater and mild herbal notes. Flavour is rather similar, has some slight catpee in the background. Hmm, not good. I will rather enjoy the aroma of a rotten eggfart than this beer. Atleast rotten eggfarts are funny. This beer is not.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep amber with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows caramel, pine and resinous hops. Also some nutty notes.
Similar flavours; caramel, sweet bready malt and nutty notes with heavy resinous pine following. Finishes with a bold bitterness.
Could use more carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an orange/amber. Long lasting head....very attractive lacing. Aromas are very green. Hoopy, piney, weeds...some medicinal aromas with a bit of honey. Flavours are mostly floral and hoppy...not over powering though. Well balanced. Good.
