MechanicalMind (22) - Crawley, West Sussex, - FEB 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours extremely lively, the head settles and stays a little fluffy white sticky covering. Smells of dolly mixtures, pineapple, grapefruit juice and resinous hops. Sweet up front and an amazing smoothness to it. Packed full of tropical fruits as it rolls over your tongue, pineapple, mango, mandarin, then the creeping bitter squeeze at the back which keeps on kicking all the while with that sweet malt backbone there balancing it out. Immensely impressed with this small brewery, my first encounter and wishing I’d swiped the whole range from the shop when I got this. Dubbed the Northern Kernel? Can see why

Tap @ wildeman. Clear golden pour, thin white head. Aroma is buttery, some fruity hops, citrus and slightly spicy. Flavor is quite bitter, creamy, diacetyl and a bit messy.

Fresh bottle @ home. Aroma is fruity, almost candy like hops, caramel malt and more. Flavour is quite bitter with herbal and fruity hop notes, some caramel malt, hint of liquorice in the finish. Nice one.

Huge offwhite head. Clear amber body with carbonation. Spicy tropical fruit aroma with resiny milky notes. Dry spicy tropical fruit taste with citric resiny notes. Mid-bodied. Fizzy mouthfeel. Dry wooden resiny spicy aftertaste with fruity citric notes. Nice, but a bit subdued. (0.33l bottle, from Beermoth, Manchester.)

Cask at The Rake, Borough Market on 10 Jun 2012. Poured a deep, slightly hazy amber, with an off white head. Aroma of tangerine, flowery hops and caramel. Prominent citrus hops in the flavour, with pine needles, tinned fruit and chewy grain. Finish was marmalade, spice and cake.

This beer has a cheesy, salty smell. The initial taste is sweet followed by a good deal of bitterness building. Rated by BrewTom

Mjp12 (639) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2014
Hops on the aroma, but also a sherbet edge, loads of dry hops in the taste, with quite a thick mouthfeel. Tasty

SlackerMads (1962) - DENMARK - SEP 27, 2014
Keg. Light hazy copper with a small off white head. Citrus zest, flowers, honey, light leafy green astringency. Medium body, medium sweet and bitter. Long bone dry finish. Carries the abv well. Solid, but the bitterness is a bit raw for my taste.
