3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A ruby/amber looking one with a nice creamy coffee coloured head. Caramelised sugar and bready smell with a floral perfume smell too, slightly spicey, slightly funky/yeast too, armpit hops if you like, probably the amarillo because it has a grapefruit quality too. Medium to high bitter citrusy hops on the palate, cakey, long and fairly dry,

Bottle conditioned, 500ml. From Tesco, Banbury. Brown orange with white head, sl volcanic. Toffee like dry beer with a slug of caramel malt. Reasonable bitterness with a lemony hoppy note, lasting on the tongue with some natural carbonation. Not bad.

A nice surprise from the mrs...I didn’t even realise Tesco did their own rage of finest bottle conditioned beers. Lively pour, big fluffy head and lots of lacing left in the glass. Toffee and caramel on the nose but I found this one was more dominated by cirrus in the mouth with the malts taking a backseat. Nice fizzy finish...ot bad.
