Craft. Clear amber beer, small cream coloured head. Palate is soft but with a stinging carbonation lurking. Nice sweet hops! Sweet pine with sweet generic fruits - orange and peach most readily identifiable. Malt cream. Minerals. Crisp finish. Nice beer!

On Keg in Cask P&K. Pours russet orange, crystal clear, medium white cream head with thick white lacing on glass. Nose is tropical fruit, mango, papaya, touch of passion fruit and pineapple, then it’s prickly hop, nettle, and caramel malt. Taste is prickly bitter green hop, and ctirous bitter fruit. Not so much soft fruit in this and the finish is a prickly green hop, pine and spice on the tongue.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg @ CPK. The pour’s deep, hazy amber orange with a massive white head. The nose is burning floral hops, mild cheddar cheese, some apricot and glazed brioche bread. Light grapefruit. The taste is mild tropical mango, some meaty peach and summer fruit sweetness. Apricot. A hefty malt presence reigns in the bitter finish of this beer. Good balance. A bit syrupy. Very smooth for the ABV. Overall, quite nice.
