500ml bottle served cellar cool. Hazy gold with an off white head. Marzipan aroma, slightly mettalic flavour. Some caramel, some vanilla, but not enough going on here to excite anybody. Medium bodied, medium bitterness. O.K. but ordinary.

I get caramel, resin, malt, butterscotch and grapefruit on the nose, with an earthy, hoppy taste. There’s some caramel in the aftertaste as well. I’m not really sure what it’s trying to be.

Looked really nice in the glass and the malt body is good. Hops on the other hand not so much. Very vegital and metallic, or is that mineral like.
Will pass on this

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml Bottle: best before 28 July 2012, poured into a ’Batemans’ badged pint sleeve on 17 July 2012.
Impressive looking brew: lovely amber body. The head a deep, lasting crown of tight bubbles.
The nose is a hoppy mix of citrus fruits and piney nut aromas.
The taste is also hops all the way with a dry bitterness from the first sip to the last: sadly as the beer warmed in the glass a metallic and sour presence showed itself. Might have been the fact it’s BBD was only 10 days away?
Slightly over carbonated for my taste, just a bit too ’fizzy’.
What began as a great tasting turned into a nasty mid-way through: I’ll not be having another of these.

Bottled, 500ml from Millets Farm Shop, Frilford, Oxon. Orange gold with an explosive head. Tastes heavily carbonated to me, but when this dies down there is a fruity, even hoppy beer trying to get out. Like a spicy tangerine note, there is a hint of Basil. Short in the finish, some farminess. Ok beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Dirty Dick’s, London. Pours clear, bright amber with a small, foamy white head. Some toasty caramel in the nose with lots of leaves, and some mild, semi-ripe fruits. Light sweet flavor with dirty-leafy bitterness, some dried fruits (citrusy) and some dry wood and bitter toast. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Decent condition. Medium bitter and fairly dry to finish; it needs a touch more sugar to a achieve a nice balance. A hint too bitter as it is, leafy and lightly grassy. Some toasty dough and semi-ripe fruits in the aftertaste. Not bad in the end.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 09/05/12. A golden beer with an off-white pool of head. A weird one this. Strawberry fruity notes in the nose together with yeast, ash and candy sugar. Similar in the mouth. Hints at infection like sourness amongst the husky malts. Really not sure of this but despite it all it tastes OK. I’m far from a fan of this brewery and wouldn’t be surprised if they just got lucky.
