3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle, 33cl) Mahogany colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Fruity and piney hoppy aroma combined with toasted dark malt, including notes of citrus, grapefruits, berries, as well as notes of caramel, leather and traces of tar. Moderately bitter and slightly sweet flavour, medium to light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Toasty malt character with notes of caramel and fruity hops with hints of citrus, dark and red berries; moderately dry bitter hoppy and slightly sweet malty finish with caramel, a whiff of chocolate and fruity hops in the aftertaste. Nice one. 22.IX.14

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On keg at the Craft Beer Rising event at the Drygate brewery. Style wise I wasn’t sure this did the amber ale thing - in some elements, it almost had the richness of a barley wine, with big orangey/raisin notes against a toffee background. In other parts, there was a fresher fruit thing happening - mango perhaps. Overall, it satisfied all flavour zones of the palate even if it wasn’t the expected amber ale.

Draft at at Edmunds Oast. Deep red pour with a creamy white head. Massive grapefruit, kumquat and tangerine hop character on the nose with some underlying bready and caramel malt notes. Flavor is just as bold and hop forward with a lengthy bitter finish. Very solid stuff.
