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!

bhensonb (10935) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 13, 2013
Cask at York Tap. Current beer mats are much more colorful than the picture. Pours translucent gold with a creamy white head. Aroma seems a mix of peach and citrus. Med body. Flavor is mild caramel with some citrus but more berry/light stone fruit. It’s not all that bitter, and seems mildly fruity sweet, but it is really a good tasting ale. Really enjoyed this one.

johninmelb (1126) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2013
Sharp nose with gooseberry, lychee and fresh lemon juice. Pours a burnished copper with a fluffy head and very strong lace. Flavour is richly citric with some candy notes, a lot of mango and papaya, some grapefruit rind toasted in honey and a strong underpinning sprucey bitterness. A hint of earth in there as well. Finish is more bitterness, long, dry and very very moreish. Excellent.
