3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught at Mother Kelly’s, Bethnal Green, London, 28 Nov 2014) Hazy golden amber colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, peaches and grassy, floral hops. Fruity, malty taste with citrus, peaches, biscuity malt and a fresh, floral bitterness in the finish. Medium body, quite dry. Fresh and tasty, quite drinkable. Nice one. (There were absolutely no signs of labels stating the hops included in this batch, so I’ll put it here for now.)

21/XI/14 - on tap @ Mother Kelly’s (London) - BB: n/a (2014-1361)
Note: I’m just gonna assume I had the "regular" version, it was on tap and the bartender had no clue about different versions. So there IS an excuse, I guess. :p
Clear orange beer, small creamy off-white to yellow head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet ripe fruits, bit sugary, mango, some caramel. MF: no carbon, medium body. Taste: fruity start, some mango, sweet caramel, almost ripe banana, bit cheesy, nice bitterness. Aftertaste: grapefruit, cheesy touch, pretty bitter, fruity, citrus. Very loveable!

330ml bottle: BBD 8/12/15. drank at Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury on 26/11/14.
Light amber with a mini-haze and a small white head. Hoppy aroma, with citrus, tropical fruits, and some pine esters. The taste was bitter and citrus led with an undertone of tropical fruitiness: dry finish to this brew.

Keg @ the Fox, Haggerston. Golden and slightly sparkling. Piney resiny hop, apple and white spirit aroma. Bittersweet followed by a massively hoppy bitterness. Long bitter finish. Not my best review but I’m drunk and I don’t do backlog. Mark my words this is proper stuff.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at Draft House. It may well have specified the hops, but I obviously wasn’t paying attention. Cloudy orange, opaque, small white head. Aroma has some light orange peel. Body is medium, spritzy carbonation, not foamy. Taste is citrussy soda water, hay, light bitterness. Nice enough APA.
