3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. The pour was a clear copper orange with an average sized (1-2 finger) off white rocky head that lasted throughout and had some really excellent sheets of lace that totally coated the glass.
The aroma was pretty straight forward with a toasted light bread malt, a pine hop and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel, rye and a bit of a peppery spice.
The taste was bold and powerful with a strong malty rye flavor and a touch of caramel in the beginning and the progressed into a malty, hoppy, peppery taste with a nice dose of rye at the end. The flavor lingered for a really long time with a good hoppy rye taste left behind well after the swallow.
Mouthfeel was light to medium in body with a hoppy dry texture and a strong carbonation.
Overall a nice and strong spicy brew with a great hop overtone...

*Very nice mix of citrus and floral hops on a floral and nice "darker" grainy body. Great citrus in comparison to the rye. Round and deep, easy to drink, great!

Keg at The Firefly, Hereford. Hazy copper with off white head. There is a rich, grainy, floral note to this from the off, resinous then quite spicy in character. The hops are sharp, leafy and citric, good depth if a touch over boiled. Heavy flavours throughout. Good stuff.

I was surprised at how much I loved this beer. At first it’s sweet and it finishes bitter with not much else in between but I really, really loved it. Flavours are there but they’re fleeting. And delicious. Highly recommended
