3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewery. All ginger, although not in your face. Light and airy. Less exciting than the previous one and a touch underwhelming.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On keg in Craft Beer Co Holborn/Covent Garden. Won’t beat around the bush as this is a pretty simple and straightforward pale saison with some nice hints of ginger. Very pale amber, white head. Nose is saison yeast, lemon and fresh ginger root. Taste as above. Light, pale, refreshing, with restrained yeast, malt and body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg at CBC Covent Garden. It pours a slightly hazy golden colour with 1 finger of white soapy head. Aroma is fresh and hoppy, quite zesty with notes of lemon and ginger. Taste is similarly light bitter with some floral hops and grass, some yeasts and bread, little in the way of funk. The citrusy and gingery notes come out quite a lot. Good
