3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
18-JUN-2012, draft @Un Mare di Birra.
Pale golden with small white head.
Honey aroma with hoppy bitterness.
Taste the same with a little yeasty spice (perhaps it is just the honey?). A little citric and the hops are mostly citric.
Thin body, low carbonation. OK refreshing but...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Craft Beer c.o, London. This is a blurry straw-yellow-golden one with a small lacing white head. The aroma has citrus tones mixed with grapefruit, melon, yeasty hints and some zesty things. Smells quite alright - not extreme. It’s soft to average carbonated, small prickling bubbles and it has a mild oily texture. The taste is definitely a bit fruity, I get melon flavors here, strawberries and malts. A nice bitterness in the finish before it’s leaving a light dry feeling in my mouth. There is also a heather-sweetness lurking in the background . Could be honey, but hard to tell. Tasty, and easy drinking. 21.07.2012
