2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
355ml bottle (Gallows Bird, Espoo)
Pale orange, tiny head. Slightly dull aroma. Decent carbonation, not too fizzy. Nutty and woody, sweet honey notes, malty taste, slightly creamy, however on top of all that there’s also a load of hops too - noble and bittering. Long nutty and bitter finish. Does become less interesting after a while, but still a very good lager.

Bottle poured a clear amber with a small lasting light amber head. Aromas of bread, light carmel and noble hops. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread with hints of carmel and earthiness with a crisp lightly bitter finish.

It’s got the German hops in the aroma, but it doesn’t translate very well to the flavor. The Boston Ale is a much better beer.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled, Pasteurised. Orangey highly carbonated beer. Poor quality tinny malted lager, the CO2 playing havoc with the taste buds and the forced, low quality ingredients, I guess at malt & hop extracts, give little satisfaction. Oh Dear.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden beer with a firm and lasting white head. Delicate malt aroma, with a touch of caramel and bread, and pine and herbs from the hops. Flavour is rather sweet and malty with a decent hop balance. Has as much body as the best Czech pilsners.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Orange color, big frothy head. Sweet apple and orange aroma, grainy and somewhat artificial. Looks thin, but is in fact almost medium bodied. Sharp grainy flavor. Flowery with a bit of cologne. Sweet apples and orange. Just a hint of sourness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at the The Duke of Wellington, Chelsea. It pours clear deep amber-brown with a medium off-white head. The nose is malt-driven...toasty, earth, citrus peel and brown bread. The taste is crisp, bitter, earthy, brown, bread, muffin, orange peel, sherbet and caramel with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. I have had this a few times a good while back, but really enjoyed it this time. Well rounded, nice orange peel action and high drinkability. Good stuff
