3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Guildford Arms, Edinburgh.
Good sized creamy of white head, nice wee bit lacing, hazy amber body. Sweet sugary nose, tropical and citrus notes. Flavour is citrus, particularly lemon and grassy bitter aftertaste. Lemongrass cuts through well. Good lasting bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is smooth and silky with no carbonation. Ridiculously easy to drink.

Cask at the Claret thanks to Dave via Colin. It pours lightly hazy amber with a small bubbly head. The nose is earthy, tea, peach, orange and spicy notes. The taste is bitter, earthy, tea-like, citrus peel, spicy bitterness, peach and caramel with a lingering bitter-earthy finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Interesting and good depth.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2014 Cask at The Vintage and The Pantry. Clear golden body with a thin white head. Light lacing. Aroma of lemongrass, elderflower and straw. Sweet flavour of peach, ginger, apricot and lightly roasted malts. Light peppery finish. Medium body with an oily texture. Flat carbonation. A touch sweeter than I’d like, but this is a very distinctive, tasty beer. Very nice.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
fruity orange and mango nose, pale offwhite lacing. Bitter tea tanins complement the citrus peel lupulin hit well with a very long tannic bitter finish. The lemongrass creates a soft floral note which contrasts the bitterness well. Good stuff for a new release.
