COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular (previously Occasional). Also available bottled at 4.8% - filtered but unpasteurised.
Tart gooseberry and soft peach on the nose. Gooseberries and fruit to taste, before an intense bitterness that’s as sharp as a macaw’s screech!

malvrich (32) - durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 8, 2015
16.9 oz. bottle into a Stella glass BB date smudged but appears to be a cpl months past. A: 3.5 Amber/orange slightly hazy appearance. Poured to a small tight eggshell head. Lacing retention is good in the center of the beer and edges of the glass. Little lasting visible carbonation. I like the color. S: 3.25 Slight fruity bite on the nose with a malty backbone. Interesting balance. T: 3.0 Immediate citrus pith whether orange or grapefruit. The same malt bready sweetness is still in place but the pithy hops seem to dominate. Not bad and kind of different but more hop complexity would have been good. Not to tone down the hops but just to add another dimension. The citrus pith gets a bit old after a while. M: 3.5 Saves this review. A little soapy, very slightly chewy both of which I like. Carbonation is subdued but there and enjoyable. Surprisingly not much of a lingering aftertaste. I’ll call this a positive in this case. Does go down good! O: 3.25 A surprising and different brew. The hop taste is too one dimensional. I like the citrus punch but too much astringency inside. Low 4.8% ABV says sessionable but I don’t think I’d like to drink many of these in one sitting. Overall, nice and glad I tried it but not one I’ll return to.

Heavily hopped, pale beer. Showcase for some hop or other. Nice and fresh tasting due to lack of pasteurisation.

Malty with caramel, toffee coming through followed by a severely good bitter finish. An excellent British style ale. Rated by BrewTom

Bottle from co-op. Nice hoppy aroma. Froffy creamy head. Nice hoppy aroma. Clearly American hops. Very oakham Ales, which is a good thing.

Hazy golden color, small white head. Aroma of sour feet? Really mild lemon. Strange kind of bitterness. Thin to medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonated. Bitter finish. Had better.

MarkoNm (913) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - NOV 13, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy orange/golden color, topped with a decent and quickly settling white head. Malty aroma, some nice and easily picked up fruity notes also here, as well as some caramel. The taste starts sweet, but soon a rather strong bitterness kicks in. Still, very drinkable and enjoyable.
