3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at the Tap East Second Anniversary Party - Stratford, London. Cheers, Kenny! Pours cloudy, rich gold with a creamy, white head. Sweet and bready, with notes of caramel and ripe orange. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish with ripe orange and other citrus fruits, more bread and mild caramel. It’s a tasty beverage but it lacks grace.

8th November 2013
Tap East Birthday Bash. Keg. Very hazy amber beer with a small white head. Palate is smooth with good fine minerally carbonation. Light malt cream and a little lactose. Hops are indeed quite mandarin along with a little tangerine and a touch of orange. Whisper of lemon. Smooth and lightly crisp finish. If this had had more hop intensity it would have been stellar, but it is a tasty IPA.

Fra fat på Cardinaltreff okt-13: mandarin på alle bauger og kanter, men ikke av den søte sorten vi får til jul, men passelig bitter for et øl. Interesting, som en engelskmann muligens ville sagt. Ser frrem til å prølve flere øl laget med denne humlen.
