Smakar skosula, på ett någorlunda positivt sätt. Ganska menlös öl i övrigt. Inte övertygande.

Began to gush but not so fast that I couldn’t keep it under control. Pours golden amber with a slight haze. For some reason I was expecting darker. Very boozy nose, almost nail varnish remover like, ethyl acetate, which somewhat overpowers other characteristics. Possibly due to a long warm ferment.
There are slight floral, soft fruit flavours making their way from behind that.
On tasting, the most evident characteristic is a burning strength of both acidity and alcohol. There are flavours of wood but also out of place esters which are very slightly funky giving this beer a bad saison edge. There is even a vinegar like quality to the flavour. None of the flavours are bad as such, but they don’t all belong here together and the balance is all awry. A little oxidisation is acceptable in such a beer but the purpose of this beer, it seem to suggest, is show off primarily the malt. Instead, we have overpowering alcohol notes, funky esters which taste a lot like a minor infection and so the malt flavours are drowned out almost entirely.As I said, it’s not horrible, but it’s badly made and has no redeeming qualities apart from being drinkable in the most literal sense. The mouthfeel is pretty good, decent level of carbonation although a bit high really. I like this brewery and really respect their angle but this beer just hasn’t been executed properly at all.

(Bottle) Hazy amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with dried apricots, orange peel, rye bread, honey and marmalade. Malty, fruity taste with orange peel, dried apricots, rye bread, heather honey, treacle toffee and a balanced citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Tasty, interesting and quite complex. Quite nice.

Short beige head. Clear pale amber color. Pale malt and a tuch of caramell aroma . Mild hoppiness with a big pale malt taste, blended with crisp chrystal malts. Resembles a light barly wine.

Bottle. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Colour of weak tea. Halo of dirty white bubbles. Looks ropey. Slightly astringent fruitiness. Light, toffee malts. Taste is sweet, but slightly tart. Syrupy palate. Manages to finish sweet, then dry, and light tart. Hard work.

Slightly cloudy dark yellow colour. No head. Aroma of pears and nuts. Nice sweet oaky malt bitterness. Some hints of dadles and caramel! It also has is a bit of a syroplike structure. Interesting ale!

Bottle; 33cl; home; courtesy of @Clayfiish on Twitter. It exploded! A nice thick white lacing. Copper-bronze in colour. Aroma is musty; hey; sweet roasted nuts; spices; cinnamon and some high abv sweet liquor.
Taste is incredibly sweet malts; lemon; rosemary; hey; perfume and floral hops. This should be a vintage spring ale as it’s reminding me of spring ales. It’s a good English style but nothing particularly exciting. It’s incredibly drinkable and not oxidised either. Well-made!

Ganska god ale ifrån ett för mig nytt bryggeri. Skulle gärna prova fler ifrån dem.

Doftar lite disktrasa. Rätt så tam o ingen wow känsla försvinner fort i smak tyvärr. Så ingen favorit

Skummet dog på en gång. Lite kryddpeppar i doften och lite i smaken sen. Söt och ganska ok men inget som utmärker mig

Flaske 0,33l. Gift from Fin, Loz & Isobel. Thanks a lot! Drukket hjemme 17 Okt 13. Aprikosfarget. Lavt skum som blir nesten helt borte. Litt uklar. Behagelig fruktaroma. Smaken er syrlig frukt med innslag av mandler. Smaken holder seg lenge. Litt bunnfall - og veldig uklar siste kvelling.
