Keg at Brewdog Shepard’s Bush. Clearing up the last of the tap takeover. Translucent reddy orange coloured pour with a lasting off white head. Aroma is sharp lemon, pollen, orange rind, tangy fruit. Flavour is composed of tangy sharp citrus fruits, hint of caramel, midget gem mixed fruits. Palate is semi sweet, highish carbonation and a nice dry finish. Lingering tangy orange rind and grapefruit. Hop is nicely balanced by a little bit of sweetness coming through. Packs a decent hop bitterness punch.

Flaska Bishops örebro. Bärnstensfärgad vätska. Maltig, smått fruktig doft. Citrus och barr. Smaken känns lite trött med en bitter kartongssmak.

VsXsV (2573) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2015
Draught. Clear amber liquid with medium to big off-white head. Aroma of citrus, grain, caramel, lemon peel and pine. Taste is light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of caramel, citrus, sweet corn and pine. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Decent but lacking in hop aroma and unnecessarily malty.

olsvammel (3691) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle at Bishops Arms in Örebro. Fruity smell with caramel and dried fruit. Similar taste. The hop aroma is a bit faded or mild. But I like the malt base. Easy to drink.
