2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled 14/09/13. A brown beer with a grey head. A malty beer with brown fruits. A fusty edge. Sweet and low hopped. It does want it sets out to do quite well and there’s nothing nasty but it is a bit shallow.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle @ home. Clear, burnt orange appearance with a white head that disappears in no time. Medicinal, herbal hoppy, horrible aroma. Toasty malty, herbal hoppy, horrible macro flavor. One of the worst beers I’ve ever had and definitely the worst IPA I’ve ever had.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Bright, streaming copper with a fine white slick of foam. GK-like soft oak, Allsorts, hazelnut yoghurt, minerals, damp leaves and twigs aroma. Soft and slick with wet dough, hazelnut and digestive biscuit notes. Just a brown, slightly twiggy bitter with some reasonable malt and a pleasantly nutty aftertaste. Dull but better than expected.
