2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle as ’ Old Dairy Vintage Ale 2012 Gyle 500’, 11%, shared at Travlr tasting at Chriso’s house of pizza. Dark orange, clear, small foamy tan head. Aroma is sour notes, twiggy, pungent fusel alcohols, solvent and alcohol. Not very inviting to say the least. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is dry, twiggy, sour. All the 11% showing up. Dry and boozy. Drinks more like a vodka than a beer. Probably not what was intended! OK if you intend to take a couple of hours sipping on something.

Lightly hazed amber/golden with moderate beige spotting and edgework.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - thanks a lot! Pours slightly hazy deep amber with an off-white head. Fairly malty aroma with hints of basement, sour milk, sweet fruits, caramel and bitter berries. Rather sweet with strange and complex flavours and a slightly sour and just lightly bitter finish. Certainly different and quit tasty, but a strange one.
