Draught. Hazy light orange liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of citrus, tangerine, mango, lime peel and grain. Taste is very light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of grain, citrus and mango. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Nice, but not my favorite kernel beer ever. May be a bit old.

I’ve drank most of this before I noticed I’ve not boxed it off over the years. Bottled 16.02. Fairly light murk for a K-Monzey effort, nice thin white cap. Nose is kaffir lime and wholegrain rice, steely melon sweetness. Initial taste is rich satisfying mineral tang, salty bite and a loose sweaty bitterness. Carbonation is middling, languishing mouthfeel much punchier than the ABV. Equally flavourful finish, oddly tart/sherbert for a flash and lingers long mineral leathery lime.

Bottle, Bottle Baron, Edinburgh

Keg in the North Riding Brewpub, Scarborough. Hazy blond with a white head. Lovely pine aroma. The taste is citrus, pine and passionfruit. Light and refreshing. Great.

Desverger (8294) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2015
Bottle from the brewery, shared at the parents, Streatham, London (28/11/2015) – (5.4%) golden orange coloured pour with nice white head. Tropical and citrus fruity aroma and taste, big grapefruit, peach, clementine, lemon, splash of passion fruit across the palate, bitter finish. Gorgeously tasty.

Not sure how I never got around to rate this. Anyways, today’s bottle, picked up at the brewery yesterday, was outstanding, so glad to rate it now. 50cl bottle. It pours a lightly hazy orange color with a minimal white head which fizzes away quickly. Aroma is intense fruity hops with apricots, tangerine, citrus peel, orange and grass. Taste has mellow stone fruit sweetness, citric hops, light tangy lemon zest, peaches and tangerine with light closing bitterness. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, shining

Bottle 330ml. Hazy amber and white fluffy head. Plenty of yeast sediment (as indicated on the label). Floral notes and plenty of citrus. Soft carbonation. Stylish pale ale. Delicate and delicious.

Light hazy amber, small white head. Fantastic aroma a of orange and peach. Loads of tropical fruit flavours and citrus. Quite sweet initially, well balanced by a moderate bitter finish. Light to medium bodied. Fairly light carbonation. Beautiful.

Thanks to Rich for this one. Nice gold color with a big head. The aroma has nice sweet malts with some fruit from the citra. The flavor starts sweet and ends very dry and bitter just the way I like them.

Bottle bought at Geers BB 23/10/15. Already feel like it’s declining. Very malty, citrus, some grape, sweet and light bitter. Too malty for me.
