4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Cambridge Wine Merchants (Mill Road), drunk at home while watching Nightmare Neighbours Next Door. Stay classy, jjsint. Dark gold, not a lot of head or obvious carbonation. Scent of papaya, pineapple, resin. Out of this world taste: a meaty bitterness that grabs hold of you. Long bittersweet finish with a hint of umami. More papaya, mango, hint of ginger. I could do with a bit more carbonation, and I think I kept it that little bit too cold. Still very very good though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a golden color with a medium white head. Aromas if one, some fruits but very subtle. Taste us bitter with pine and dank, but medium roasted, with some sweet notes. Light body with medium carbonation. May be a batch gone bad or I don’t know.
