3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
cloudy unfiltered orange appearance with a very frothy off white head. I’m getting some earthy herbal like aromas, with some hay and grass. The taste is mild with those grass and hay notes and a nutty sweetness on the end, minimal bitterness. the mouth feel is creamy and smooth. Overall this is really good not overpowering in any direction. Smuttynose does not dissapoint.

Bottle from Cornelius. Hazy chestnut brown body with a thick off-white head. Light lacing. Aroma of leafy earthiness, dirt, tea and a minty finish. Flavour of grassy bitterness, caramel and lightly roasted malt. Thin body with a watery, slightly oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Crisp and simple. Tastes like a classic Bitter.

355ml bottle from Appellation Wines - cheers Ash! Pours clear amber with a decent off-white head. Aromas are funky yeast, light orange, sherbet. Agree is smells a bit off! Taste brings more citrus, bitter.Creamy texture, medium body. Not convinced.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle from Appellation Wines.
Appearance - golden amber with a nice head.
Nose - a bit of funky farmyard. Smells a bit off.
Taste - orange and grapefruit
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry finish.
Overall - the nose was a real off-put but it improved after that.
