2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cask, half pint at The Old Bar, Leeds University. Lacing to the upper level of the glass. Hazy golden body. The aroma is dominated by lavender. Perfumed taste of lavender with honey sweetness beneath. Carries some interests and is possible to drink, not my kind of beer though (05.07.2015).

Bottle at Craig’s. Flowery lavender on the nose. Overpowering soapy lavender taste, interesting.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask @ Brewery Tap, Leeds. Hazy golden ale with a creamy head. Very floral in its nose, very much so in its taste too with hops evident but the lavender is dominant in its taste. However it is an acquired taste despite its very easy drinking texture.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask conditioned at York Beer Festival ’14. Gold with white head. There is certainly a flowery, lavender aroma to this leading to a very distinctive flavour. My front border in the garden is Lavender, not sure I want to infuse it in any beers, the honey is certainly distinctive too. Agreed this is a positive statement, unfortunately not for me.

Lovely beer that retains its head in the glass, on drinking you get Lavendar then the honey comes along to create a full frontal assault on the palate, this Beer is well worth seeking out.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
9th November 2012
Slight haze on this gold beer, tidy white head. Palate is crisp and very dry. Lots of perfumey lavender. Mellow orangey citrus underneath. Finishes very dry with some hop bitter linger and lavender perfume. I like the unapologetic boldness of the Lavender but the palate is too dry.
