3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
It pours a clear, dark gold color with an off white head. The aroma has some toasty and sweet toffee malts up front followed by some fruit and spice. The flavor is more toast and toffee with some spicy hop bitterness and mild fruity esters. Pretty watery on the palate with good carbonation and a decently dry, snappy finish. A very drinkable bitter.

0.5 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Copper color. Very fruity aroma with tangerine, orange and lemon. Dry, bitter, fruity, slightly nutty and slightly biscuity flavor with restrained lemon, tangerine and pepper. Fairly smooth palate with bitter minerally finish. Light bodied. Good easy drinking yet fairly hop-forward ale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle@home. Clear amber, thin white head. Woody, citrusy fruity and herbal aroma. Solid. Flavor has citrus, grapefruit, biscuity notes. Hoppy finish, quite dry and with grapefruit lingering. A hoppy bitter. But this is a great beer, the "bitter" elements are clearly there, with the us hops complementing. I could drink this every day.
