Bottle: Unclear, amber-orangey coloured with a stable loose and lacy off-white head, fruity-caramelly nose with a mild, but distinctive hoppiness; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, very soft, light to medium bodied; smooth and lingering hoppy-bisquity finish. Well drinkable, delicious stuff…

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Scent of sweet floral hops and malt. The taste is interesting, first there is a berry flavor (raspberry?) Which is then transferred to a nice malty taste with a clean hop bitterness. A beer which differ from the general nature of Premium Bitter / ESB. I like it!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(50 cl bottle) Copper colour, slightly hazy, with a light brown, rocky head. Aroma is very spicy and hop-influenced (herbs, pines, a bit of grapefruit), but also with a strong malty base full of character, biscuity, toasted, nutty, woody. Taste is medium bitter, and lightly sweet. Medium to full body, soft to average carbonation, pleasant texture. Great aftertaste, long finish. Stands out compared to other bottled bitters I have had, probably because it is bottle conditioned (and generously hopped). What a difference! Des not seem super-fancy, but very well-crafted and - most important - absolutely delicious!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
50cl bottle shared with Joes. Lightly hazy bronze color, small white to off-white head. Smell is weird: herbs, hops, fruityness and malts in a mix. Taste is a lot more sour then expected. Some bitterness from ’fruit-peel’, probably mostly resembling grape-peel-bitterness. Medium but a little fizzy carbo, low to medium body.
