3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: Pours a cloudy light amber color with a white head.
S: Lots of coriander and banana to the nose with a decent breadiness. Lots of yeast and esters along with a bit of orange and lemon zest.
T: Taste is very zesty and peppery. The malt is pale and crackery and there’s some orange peel, coriander, and tons of yeast eters.
M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation.
D: Pretty light and easy to drink in terms of mouthfeel, but there are definitely some assertive flavors from the different yeast.

On cask at Petrol Station. Pours a cloudy orange with a small frothy white head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is yeast and fruit with clove. Medium mouthfeel with clove banana and much more drier than the regular amber in the finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2011 Fresh-cut grass aroma. Defnitely golden in color? A light blonde; malty flavor with interesting fruit notes (from the yeast?). Nothing special really.
