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!

jasonbenali (123) - Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2016
Bottle from Waitrose. Pours orange to amber with medium carbonation, a thin white head and medium carbonation. Aroma is gooseberry, caramel, lime and lychee. Taste is a touch rubbery and harsh, but with a nice length bitter finish. Good malt notes for the ABV even if it’s a little thin. Got better the more it warmed up and has some interesting flavours.

TBone (16116) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 22, 2016
Bottled 500ml (Alko)
Clear golden-amber color, small steady white head and some lace. Like description says, there is "rubbery" peach in the nose. Light-bodied. Gooseberries, sweetish peachy fruityness but same time also kind of harsh overall. Hard mouthfeel. Ok but not as good as expected.

Bit of a mash up between an English and American pale ale. Solid malty base, with a moderate fruity hop bitterness. Very sessionable. Nice.

blackradioboy (175) - SCOTLAND - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle from Home Bargains. (£1) Not too bad. A tiny bit of grapefruit which ends with a very long, dry bitterness. Maybe too long. Good for a quid though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
