3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Moncada Tap Room, London, Friday, 11th December 2015 This was a really hoppy version of the Amber that Ang had gone and rooted out, appearing much hoppier than the usual version this batch was lovely. I can’t recall what Ang said the exact hops were but I believe that amazingly for me I managed to pick out Colombus. It was as you might guess amber in colour with citrussy and pine resin notes, very hoppy mouthfeel, a very good beer. A8 A4 T7 P3 Ov15 3.7

(Cask at Gallows Bird Magna Carta Real Ale Festival 2015) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was small, dense and white. Aroma had pine, fruitiness and malts. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were pine, malts, fruitiness, caramel and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy, malty and bitter. A brew with good aroma but the taste was musty.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2015
April 2015 - Cask at the Salusbury Queens Park. Hazy, almost cloudy dark amber orange, still, small foamy beige head, very full lacing. Aroma is nice - hoppy orange, peach, mango. Body is medium, smooth, touch of carbonation. Taste is sweet, twiggy, pot pourri, more peach, pretty astringent and bitter. Maybe a touch buttery. Full flavoured stuff. Good. (3.6)
Nov 2015 - At the brewery tap room as ’Amber Hop Rocket’. Taste is leafy with cucumber. Prefer the normal version. (3.1)
