4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle from that London, provided by the wife. Poured into a Hoegaarden tasting tulip. Opaque amber with a thin off-white head. Fruity floral aroma. Tropical fruit, blueberry, toffee malts, and almond flavours. Some resinous sap as well. Slick mouth feel, long finish. Rather good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Corks Out, 21 Watergate Street, Chester CH1 2LB. This cloudy dark amber coloured beer pours appropriately enough with a huge rocky head of white foam. It has a bitter orange marmalade and citrus fruity flavour, malty and toffee notes followed by a creamy sharp pine and pineapple finish. Very Nice!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Spirited Wines.
Appearance - maybe I slightly shook the bottle or something but I didn’t expect the head to be this settles. Golden orange when it swrtles
Nose - citrus and sherbet. Slight concern that some wild yeast is present.
Taste - lime zest, then orange fruit. Still an edge of sherbet but no longer concerning.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a big tangy zingy texture that kicks on to give a dry bitter and tangy finish.
Overall - initially the level of sherbet in this made me think there was an infection. Perhaps a Belgian yeast was deliberately used and it delivered that tootie fruity sensation deliberately.

33cl bottle from Oddbins, London Bridge. Pours a hazy apricot colour with a thin off-white head. Aromas of herbs, spices, and sweet malts. Taste is initially of hops with the malt coming through in the finish. Not as hoppy as expected after reading the bottle. Very refreshing and well balanced. Good pale ale.

Bottled, 330ml from Utobeer, Borough Market, London. Cloudy amber with white head. There is a hoppy aroma which thankfully leads on into a zesty, hoppy, dry beer. There are grapefruit, lemon and tropical fruit notes. Lasting palate, good depth of flavour. Good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a hazy light amber with a frothy white head and some broken lace. The aroma is yeast, citrus, floral hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a dry yeast, fruity, nettle hop, light spice bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A slightly different take on an APA that works for me.
