Bottle from Witrose in East Cowes shared with McTaps. Highly drinkable piwo with big aromas of spruce, lemons, other citrus fruits and a bit of hay. Bitter ending which is is equalized by a fine sweetish forefrunt. Cripsy, special, amazing piwo which is a bit unusual.

Bottle from Waitrose in East Cowes. Beer pours out in a light hazy golden colour with low, airy head and crisp body. Aroma of hops and spruce. Taste of fresh hops, mandarinas, citrus, spruce, pine, mild herbs and light peppers. Wonderful refreshing. Loved it due to its well-balanced bitterness and aromatic finish.

A new golden rake @ Magpie : nice pungent hoppy nose. Tropical fruit. Golden colour (no shit) A dry palate with that zesty hop shit that’s aromatic and chill. Almost Apa in character.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma of wood from the hops. A little thin and bitter taste. Tastes much English despite there being used amarillo and summer hops.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
It stuns me that people don’t rate this beer. On cask it has a wonderful velvet mouthfeel that instantly lets you know the brewer cares. It is packed with aroma hops giving tropical fruits, peaches and gooseberry; it is perfectly bitter and has a solid pale malt backbone. One of the ten best sub 5% beers in the world.

Cask at The Mermaid, St Albans on 12 Jan 2013. Poured a bright amber, with a thin, off-white head. Great aroma of juicy hops, lychee, passion fruit and some grassy notes. Flavour was a mix of tropical fruit, bitter waxy hop and biscuity malt. Finish was marmalade, grapefruit and grain.
