Tasting at Bruce’s Pad. Thanks to Paul for this one. Lightly hazy gold beer with good size yellow white head. Palate is light and and slightly crisp. Little dry seltzer. Touches of cream and vanilla. Super light bourbon and citrus. Comes together well for a light dry finish. Interestingly light BA beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 75cl, at RBNG-14 Grand Tasting. A whiteish golden beer topped by a dense, off-white head. The aroma has a nice citrusy sourness, with citrus, some maltyness and a touch of dried apricots. Farmhouse notes. The flavor has a nice sourness and fruityness, with some farmyard hints. Some pale malts in the back. Rather berry-ish. Full to medium body with a pleasant carbonation. Lasting finish. An easy drinkable and tasteful one, but I won’t go far to have it again. 140215

Bottled 750ml (PBF IX)
Slightly hazy yellow color, small white head. Slightly tart, citrusy aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Very fruity but same time dry flavor. Citrus, light barnyard, some sweetish notes. Slick palate. I can’t trace much of bourbon here but interesting it is.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2013 Bottle shared at Bruce’s in London - many thanks to Paul. Pours hazy yellow with a moderate, frothy white head; looks great. Pleasant aroma, some citrus, grapefruit, melon, mild funk. Light sweet flavor, very nice citrus, tangerine, lemon, faint hay and white bread. Light bodied with fine, caressing carbonation. Lovely finish, mild tangy lemon, pale bread, very slight funk. Excellent beer. Nice balance. Very drinkable.

Whiskey, a touch of booze, and a light herbal note. Flavor has plenty of charred oak and whiskey flavor. Tart, acidic lemon notes. Sweet pear, melon, and apple. A touch of tart grape on the finish.
