Very light haze on this amber beer, little off white head. Light minerally palate, semi dry. A little sweet malt. Mild minerals. Insipid hops, barely there! Light sweet esters. Semi dry finish. Muted and dull.

Bottle shared at CPK in London. Thanks to Bruce. Pours clear gold with a creamy white head. Plenty of doughy bread here, strong Belgian yeast, candi sugar. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, simple bready malts, toffee, yeast. Simple, pretty tasty.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Closer to a pale lager, however with some yeast and slight spice character. No smell or colour and so-so drinkability.

deep amber .. light head, as is the lacing .. . on the old bastard again, don’t freeze .. . light bitterness- very light fruit skin, modest yeast, and bitter caramel like monkey .. . good for a quick snort but needs more depth to be a repeat buy, but i can see what they were going for so cheers to that
.. . . Tis nary a beast alive that can outrun a greased Scottsman!

Big thanks to Sammy for this one. Pours reddish brown with fizzy head and no lasting lacing. Fairly low carbonation. Taste is boozy and a little too sugary. Smell has some florals. Finish is boozy bitter and slightly sours as the taste progresses. Oily texture. Decent but could do with a little more integration.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle pours a clear, dark orange with some clumpy white head. Nose is mostly Belgian, almost like a triple, candy sugar, malt, crackers, yeast, some citrus. Flavor is nice, sweet, yeasty, raisin, orange, a little candy sugar. Slightly watery, dry finish. This reads more Belgian style singel to me.

Slightly hazy golden with a foamy white head. Estery, spicy, and slightly dusty nose with some pear and pale earthy cereal grains. Peppery flavor of yeasty esters, dough, light mild herbal bitterness, sweet pale maltiness and a subtle hint of dusty spiciness with a slightly bitter finish.
