2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught. Murky orange pour, minimal white head. Faint grapefruit aroma, more like acidic berries, slight peaches and floral notes, harsh resins. Hints of raisins. Grainy maltiness, resinous and somewhat harsh bitterness. Some fermentation notes, like perry. Light to medium body, slightly soda-like texture. This was the first pour from the tank and I still wonder if or was OK.

330 mml bottle tasted on the 19/11/2014. Hazy golden colour with a medium off-white head. Aroma of malts, grain and some lemon. Taste is citrus, fresh and clean but unidimensional, not complex. Medium carbonation and body. Aftertaste is not intense. Next one please!

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Beermerchants.com. Not much of a aroma and a rather damp feeling about it. Pours dark orange with a small white head. Taste is sweet and a bit fresh with some hops, though not overwhelming. Palate is actually pretty nice and it passes through the mouth smoothly. Overall not a very exciting beer and not very tasteful.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, 330ml from Utobeer, Borough Market, London. Hazy orange amber with white head. There is an initial fruity sweetness, slight bon-bon hints followed by a herby hoppy note. Allied to this is a citrus, orange hint. Perhaps a little mixed up but pretty reasonable too.

Cask conditioned at The Euston Tap, Euston, London. Hazy gold with white head. Big hop flavours going on with this, grapefruit bitterness with lemon pith and sharp gooseberry, full on the palate and very tasty. Lots of carry through, drying. Very good.
