Pours golden with a haze and a big white head. Dry bitterness and hints of citrus at first with a slightly odd sweet finish right at the end. Not my cup of tea. (Rating backlog, drunk on International Record Store Day 2013 The Bow Bar, Edinburgh)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Cask at Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell, London, 23 Apr 2013) Golden colour with foamy, white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of citrus, apples and dried fruit. Malty, fruity taste with apple juice, citrus, grapefruit and a generous citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. The apple character was a bit unexpected, but the beer is quite enjoyable.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cask at Grove Inn, Hudds. It pours hazy golden with a medium white head. The nose is icing sugar, straw, dough and farmyard. The taste is bitter-sweet, icing sugar, straw, bitter pine, pith citrus, soap, toilet cleaner and alcohol with a bitter finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. I really don’t appreciate the sweetness in this beer. Odd stuff indeed.
