2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly cloudy pale orange pour with small white head that left quickly. Aroma light sweetness mixed with yeast sourness. Taste is fresh sourness of yeast over barley with hints of mandarin rind... more of a famhouse ale than a lager? Body is full initially, though oddly this thins on the sour finish. Overall, interesting but is missing something.

Pours a golden straw yellow. Very very malty making it a bit on the sweet side. Nothing special at all but not on the ommercial side either.

Gentle and refined, but not boring at all. It isn’t that complex but it tastes of quality. Nice thick head. Great colour. Butterscotch flavours. Rounded mellow ending.

THE Sour and Saison tasting - a rogue entry! Hazy gold beer, big pale cream coloured head. Smooth palate, semi dry. Mild fine carbonation. Fresh malt, fairly papery - a little mild fruits. On the cusp this one - initially reaction was it would be a stinker but I warmed to it.
