3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the brewery, Bermondsey, London 21.04.12 Pours a mid hazy gold edging towards amber with slim white head. Citrussy in mouth with some bittersweet orange, actually it is more sweet, with just a late bitter citrussy and sort of pithy edge to it. Bit dry towards the end, but a damn good beer, I had this sandwiched between two Simcoe Nelson Sauvin IPA’s and it worked very well. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8
