2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Maybe I had this too cold but it was a bit tasteless and thin, with just a very bitter after-tase. A bit more came through as it warmed up but still a bit thin, especially in the after-taste. Aroma of nutty caramel wit a little, almost rye like spiciness. Some juicyness comes through in the taste but not loads, still thin. Disappointing overall from a super brewery.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, 330ml from House of Trembling Madness Bottle Shop, York. Hazy orang amber with white head. Full of tropical fruit hoppy flavours along with mandarin orange and citric bitterness. A new flavour with every sip and it feels like a sipper rather than a supper. Bittering throughout, exotic, really very good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy amber with small fleeting head. Aroma is subdued producing subtle grapefruit, floral and a some spicy pangs. Soft palate, too thin and transient for my taste. Soft bitterness sits behind almost insignificant grassy and citrus notes. The malt is interesting: taste reminiscent of more a more robust Rivita. Slightly grainy.
Facets are in place for a good beer, it just feels like a diluted version.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Cornelius. Hazy amber body with a medium off-white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of caramelised sugar, candy, talcum powder, orange and earth. Flavour of biscuit, earth and bitter, astringent hops. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation. It tastes quite raw and unbalanced but I like it.
