3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Closest comp for this is RR Damnation. That’s not a bad place to be. Golden with an elegant white head. Pear, banana, clove. I love Damnation and can’t say I wouldn’t prefer this in a blind test. High notes are hit and subtleties remain. Dang. I want to move to Portland.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Colour...hay bale yellow with a thick white head. Nose...surprisingly citrusy for the style of ale that this is, with yeasty and generally fruity notes too. Palate...light and crisp with zesty lemon and perky notes of underripe Bartlett pears. The palate is fairly frothy and certainly full. The finish is moderately long and has a spiced fruit salad thing going on. This blonde isn’t too strong, but fairly fit nonetheless.
