3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle at The botanist. I need to correct the knuckle-dragging lesser ape rantings of the smelly CAMRA sad tit who shat all over this mosy likely because it doesn’t taste like twigs and non-offensive sweet mud. Hazy gold, small white frothy head. Taste and aroma of APA with oily aciic resin bitterness and only some alcohol. Chewy, not all that carbonated, a nice medium dry finish. I quite liked it - but then I don’t have a two foot greasy beard, a stained anorak and an old fart’s grudge against any beer with a recipe created since 1825.

Burnt rubber taste. Smell the same. Good value, guaranteed to last for ever it tastes so bad.
