3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Sheffield Tap. Fizzy amber with a bubbly head. Citrus hopped aroma, fragrant. Clean, dry, light citrus. Pleasant hoppy ale, it’d make for a good session, but does leave a dry aftertaste. Has a good malty body.

Tap@AIBF2014. Pours golden with a rich head. I did detect corn in the aroma, but the American hops did manifest themselves in the taste. A surprisingly rich pine aroma for a lager. Medium bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Akiyama Liquor Store (Kochi). Slighlty oxidized nose (drink by date is Nov. 2014), with some peach, earth, and light citrus hopping. Dark amber/gold color. Hop hit in initial, goes to some light bitter fruitiness, and then more citrus hops in mid and final. Thin, light body, and a bit dry in finish. Tasty. But probably no the best bottle of this batch. Not really reminiscent of any pils I’ve had.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Liking the mission statement on the above description. Clear orange pour with a small white head. Great tropical fruity hoppy beak. Flavour was crisp, citrus, hoppy and fruity. Really drinkable. As premium lagers go this is a damned good one. Why not make Stella illegal and force the masses to drink this stuff instead ? The world might just be a better place.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Subdued aroma gives little hint of the hop forward balance of flavour. Bitter finish quickly dissipates and makes one want another taste.
