3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2008 on tap at the brewpub. quite a bright copperish colour, rocky head with light bubbles. worty aroma suggesting this could need a bit more lagering, hint of cleaning products, only a light grassy hop character. lightly citric flavour - lemon rind and some rotting orange. quite messy and frothy, hint of infection which is a bit disappointing considering the brewery is newly installed. a fair amount of bitterness but not a lot of saaz character. hopefully they will fix this up a bit, it wasn’t available last time i was out at the brewery which suggests the brewer realised it wasn’t up to standard
