3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On cask, poured into a nonic glass. The aroma is a warm and pleasant blend of orange, caramel, bread, and late notes of tropical fruits. The beer appears oily with a gold hue and a sudsy white head that leaves a snowy lacing and has a moderate retention. The taste is a medium high bitter and complimentary medium sweet. The texture is oily and smooth with a foamy carbonation and a medium body. The flavor is that of bitter citrus and a light caramel note with a smooth finish containing bitter pine and a bite of herbal and citrus zest. The aftertaste is lightly dry with herbal and bitter citrus notes as well as a mildly lingering caramel and bread undertone.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This one was less hoppy then Scarlet Macaw that I just had. Still the malt bill is well juicy like the precedent. The beer is not that complex but satisfying. Aroma is poor and reminds bread, sugar and zest. The flavour is quite the same with a good mouthfeel ; soft and creamy.
