2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle enjoyed with friends. Pours a copper gold with almost no head that quickly dissipates. Looks flat and unappealing. Aroma is strongly of wood with a little toffee. Slightly cardboardy hops. Taste is a woody carboardy sweetness that’s overpowered by a metallic bitterness. Rough and messy and flat to finish. Metallic aftertaste dominates as well. Bad beer, very disappointing for a highly regarded brewery.

A bit light on flavour. Ok mouthfeel. Good bright looks. Something bothers me on this one.

Advertised on the bottle like IPA, does not seem like one. Fruity, spicy & a bit hoppy aroma. Bitter, malty taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber colour with a fizzy off white head. Aroma of caramel, bread, oak, grapefruit, red berries and spice. Taste of caramel malt, red berries, grass, grapefruit and spicy bitterness plus a little bit metallic. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation and an oily texture. A dry, spicy bitterness in the finish. A solid traditional beer, nothing more.
