3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2011 Hand bottled (RBESGG2011, Grand Tasting) (6:3:7:4:13=3.3)
Sweet and sticky hop aroma. Quite pale, hazy. Nice in the mouth. Good bitter and dry resiny finish, a touch woody.
Rerate: Hand bottled, same as previous batch, settled at home for 2 weeks. (8:4-:7:4+:16=3.9)
8 Stunning refreshing aroma, right from the first pour. Light and coriandery, slightly lemony, and with a gently wheaty component too.
4- Hazy and pale like a wit, but with a huge rocky white head that hangs around for a while too. Too pale for my liking, but if I tell myself it’s a wit, I can forgive it!
7+ Very simple malts, and a light grainy body, but that keeps itself in the background and lets the hops do their merry dance instead. The aromatic aspects are certainly as spicy and citrusy as the aroma promised, but there’s brambley fruits and berries too.
4+ Crisp lively palate, good carbonation. Finish has everything from the darkest sticky resiny bitterness to dry pepperiness, to fruits, to citrus. Penty going on there. Then, as the fireworks die down, the light grains pop up to remind you they’re there. Nice.
16- Out-Oakhamming Oakham? As hoppy as their brews, as exciting too, but this has no oppressive features at all, it’s pure refreshment. Probably the best blond I’ve ever had. Great job, Gazza! Pictish. That’s what this is. Pictish at their best.
