Scopey (12511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle from Alesela. It pours clear amber with a thick white head. The nose is sweet, doughy, grapefruit, candy and hay. The taste is bitter-sweet, doughy, lemon, grapefruit, light toast, spice, some bitterness and a touch of alcohol on the back end with a dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Hides abv pretty well. Not a whole lot of character, but drinkable enough.

allmyvinyl (9449) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 24, 2013
330ml bottle at home. Hazy light amber pour, massive white head, very high carbonation. Aromas are blackcurrant, orange, some biscuit. Taste has a good fruity sweet note, then a cleansing bitter at the back end. Grassy notes come out too, alongside more biscuit malt. Could do with just a bit more going on for the strength, and too fizzy.
