3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home picked up from beer gonzo, drunk in the garden on a very warm summer’s evening. Pours a rich ruby red amber colour with a loose, sticky magnolia head. Aroma is delicate hedgerow berries, tangy red currants, hints of dried orange peel, fruits and nuts. Flavour is composed of semi sweet nutty malts, dried orange rind, red berries, little toasted bread. Palate is semi sweet, rounded, moderate carbonation, and a decent crisp finish. Very well balanced and drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Cambridge Wine Merchants, consumed at home. Brownish-red, light and translucent. A small film of creamy head sits on top. Delicious scent. Spruce, soft citrus, sweet herbs and turpentine. Exceedingly bitter taste, there’s a resiny sweetness which briefly surfaces but it’s drowned out by the bitter finish. Hop oil dominates the aftertaste. Body in surprisingly weak. Very good but lacking the final punch I was halfway expecting.
