3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
August 24, 2013 - 330ml bottle consumed at the brewery. Hazy light gold - no floaties - smallish white head. Resin/pin C-hop with citrus zest, lightly fruity, not much alcohol. Taste - lemon and something elderflower-like (bitter and herbal), less resin. Average body, medium carbonation, very dry finish, tries to coat the palate with grapefruit pith bitterness, doesn’t quite hold it - bump it one point for massive drinkability, like all the beers I tried from them.
