3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On cask at Dix. Light orange colour with a thin white head. Aroma is of Goldings/Challenger, a bit bready, fairly spicy. Flavour has a touch of sweet orange and a bit of herbal character. I don’t get any ginseng aroma really. A bit herbal and spicy flavour as well. Decent as a bitter, but doesn’t have a whole lot of orange/ginseng character. As it warms a touch of bubble gum flavour comes out. Decent brew.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask, at Dix
Slightly hazy copper. Flowery, orangey aroma. Light, creamy body. Some fluffy biscuity malts and light spice. Refreshing. A touch light overall - I’d like to see those fruity, floral notes more assertive, maybe with a kiss of Centennial or something to throw a new dimension in there and add some crispness.
