3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at La Cerveteca in Barcelona. Pours a cloudy golden orange colored body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is lightly sweetened, bready malts with some white grapes, florals, apricots, and a light spicing. Flavor is similar. Apricots and white grapes with a bit more of a grassy and spicy note throughout. Soft, bready, lightly sweetened malts provide a nice balance before this finishes dry and fairly bitter, but well balanced. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium-full feeling, creamy body an a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid beer. The hop was a bit intense at times, but the malts provided a nice, soft, lightly sweetened balance. Good beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ home [as Slaapmutske Hop Collection East Kent Goldings]. Clear golden color, full sized fair to good lacing thick, dense off-white head. Don’t get a lot of aroma. Taste is lightly malty, some sourish hoppyness and sourish hopbitter. I find it hard to finish my glass actually. A disappointment.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle of Kent Goldings Hop Collection. Nose is milk chocolate, grass, spice and lots of yeast. Taste, is chocolate, apricot, dough, some vanilla. Finish is sticky and lasting with a bitter tang, which I never got to grips with.
A funny beer, with complex aromas and taste, but it never really came together for me, feeling like a number of disjointed tastes and smells.
