3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Oddbins at London Bridge. Golden beer bit of a haze from the yeast that I poured in. Thick white head. Herby quite sharp hoppy aroma. Touch of sherbert. Earthy nutty flavour to go with the hoppy blond beer. Yes a kind of brazil nut quality to it. Hops are fine. Very good bitterness on the finish. Good character. Yes a very decent blond. Not much Belgianness to it though I thought. I’d happily have this again for the hoppy finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2012 Bottle at the brewery. Thanks, Gary! A much better experience than the first time I tried this beer. The tang is gone, and there’s a wonderful hop bite to the beer now. Many of the same, good characteristics are still here. Very well-made brew. (3.7)
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, pale yellow-gold, highly effervescent, with a creamy, white head. Aroma has some sugary dough, pale malt, straw. The flavor certainly is sharp, though not in a terribly good way. There’s an almost sour tinge to the flavor. Light sweet, some doughy malts, hay. Yeah, there’s definitely something a little peculiar. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Crisp, biting finish with more of that tangy, lightly sour citrus, mild dough, faint straw bitterness. Yeah, not too impressed by this one; I’m really hoping this tang is unintentional. (2.7)

On tap at Redchurch brewery and taproom, Bethnal Green, Saturday 26th October 2013 Hazy lemon colour on the nosd is sherbert and also lemon, I really like the nose. A little fuzzy in mouth, soft some sweet lemon, I rather like this. A little easier than the 6% & 9.4% beers we’ve just had. A8 A4 T7 P3 Ov15 3.7

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home, ABM, 07/03/14.
Clear pale blonde, moderate white covering that retains.
Nose is mandarin, citric pithdom, grassy, light mango, earthy hop notes.
Taste comprises tangerine, light hops, straw, hint of grapefruit, citrus rind, a touch of soap which lets this down a couple of notches.
Medium bodied, fine caronation, grassy hop bitterness in a drying close.
Solid for style, but style - this could be an APA or a Session IPA, juicy hoppy citric pith goodness, lager ? Premium or otherwise I say nay!
Decent lowish ABV thirsy quencher whatever the style.
