3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle from Trafalgar Wines, Brighton. Hazy amber colour lasting light beige head. Yes a floral hop aroma which is very attactive. It’s ok, but quite light in the mouth. Some ok bitterness on the finish. Bit of nettle and almost pee on the aroma. It’s fine. Attactive aroma. But this nettle pee thing is just a bit ughy for me.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the Folsom BevMo. Pours clear copper with a frothy white head. Aroma is moderate rose over mild caramel. Near full bodied. Flavor is malty, but there’s more than enough hop to pound that down, and the rose aroma carries into the flavor. I’m voting for earthy/floral for the hop. Lots of flavor whatever.
