4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle, as RCH On The Tiles, courtesy of Cardinal pub, Stavanger. Bottle conditioned. ABV is 4.0%. Deep golden to orange coloured beer, slightly hazy, low off-white head. Very nice hoppy aroma, notes of tropical fruits. The flavour has a nice balance between the malts (with a hint of caramel) and the distinct and grapefruity hops throughout. Hoppy finish and aftertaste, but not too bitter. Possibly inspired by American pale ales? Anyhow, I like it!

Rich orange, no head. Sweet malty aroma. Sweet fruity malty taste and bitterness too. (5-3-8-3-13=3.2)
Rerate: 500ml bottle. Bottle conditioned, BB03/11 (7-4-7-4-14=3.6)
2 years of conditioning have treated this very well even though it’s only 3.9%. Really rich fruity sultana aroma, walnutty too. Taste also a great nutty experience - dry and a touch drying, but also wonderfully fruity and aromatic. It really had conditioned in the bottle - as it was hinting at gushing.
