2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Copper with a slim fine collar and plenty of lace. Standard clear-bottled pasteurised waft of caramel, hay and vegetables. Flavour marginally better; watery tea, caramel, jellied orange, hay. However, all round, a pretty piss-poor beer to be associated with the Eden Project, unlike the excellent (cask) 6 Hop IPA.
