3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry on the w/e of Worcester’s humbling of Coventry City 2-1 in the FA Cup. Had this at home Wednesday 12th November 2014 Pours copper in colour with bubbly off-white head. Hoppy burps so this hoppier than I thought. Aroma is pineapple cubes , it’s a little tropical with a little hoppy burn at the back end. I thought it was a tad boring at first but improved hugely as I continued supping. A little bitter orange, a dry finish, it tastes like a decent hoppy bitter. Good. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

18th October 2014
4.5% bottle that is simply titled Scrawl. Bright clear gold - amber beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is light and minerally crisp. Thin malts, just enough to provide some sweetness. Hops are a nice combo of mellow skunk, mild pine and light limey citrus. Light finish. Thin but tasty. A Session IPA by todays standards surely!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl James. Copper with white head that disappears quite quickly. Aroma is delicious, pine, grapefruit and apricot. Flavour is a bit of a let down after the aroma, more malt forward, biscuit, cereal, caramel, also some resinous piney hops and grapefruit with a long earthy after-taste. Decent body and a bitter finish
