Bottle from the brewery. I accidentally froze this overnight in the freezer but it doesn’t seem to have done any harm other than slight loss of carbonation. Colour is hazy amber, nice creamy foam head. Nose is orange citrous, mango, soft fruit, papaya, caramel malt. Taste is soft pithy citrous fruit, green hop bitter, pine, grapefruit tang.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dec 2012 - cold bottle. Lager quality in the finish. After a couple of strong beers, I’m not complaining that this one is lighter. It’s OK - mild malty floral flavours with a sharp spicy finish.
