3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at OT. Pours out in a hazy deep golden colour with a small creamy white head. Rich rounded hop aroma of hay, wet grass and orange-peels. Medium-bodied with notes of soil, oranges and wet grass. Grass, mild pepper and orange-peels in the bitter finish. Quite one-dimensional but really well-made, lively, fresh and moreish.

Cask at Akkurat, August 2011.
Slightly hazy light amber with a minimal head. Aroma of fruit, hay and some bread. The taste was refreshing. I found something that reminded a bit of Swedish crispbread (knäckebröd) in the taste.
