3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Cask at Harp, Covent Garden, London, 25 April 2008) Copper colour with foamy, white head. Fruity nose with notes of apricots, toffee and hints of sulphur. Fruity taste with apricots, oranges, toffee and balanced amounts of citrussy hops in the finish. Some sweetness lingers in the background throughout. Not really outstanding, but nicely balanced with a citrussy hop character.

Dark yellow colored, slightly hazy appearance. Medium sized white head. Rich fruits in aroma with lemon and apple, yeast also here. Medium bodied, soft palated. Flavor is richer with still fruits dominating with apple and lemon. Aftertaste dries with mild hops. I like this soft palate here.
