On tap, at Haand Festival 2015. An almost clear one, golden in color and with a creamy off-white head. The aroma has caramel malts in the back, with dried fruits, pine cones and resins. It’s a bit sweet on the palate and lacking on bitterness, but there’s a nice malty backbone and lovely flavors of resins and pine cones. It’s full-bodied and lightly warming, with a pleasant carbonation level. Overall, a nice beer indeed, but I find it too sweet and malty. 140524

Bottle. Brewtique, Macclesfield. 8.5%. Hazy, dark copper colour. Film of sticky, off white head. Big, minty, herby, toffee aroma. Fairly resinous. Dank, and fusty. Verges on the medicinal. Beautifully aromatic. Taste is light, spicy dry, with an orange pith, and orange zest, soft bitterness. Palate is rich, oily, and smooth. Finishes long, light, zesty bitter. So tasty. Beautifully balanced. Wow. I like this a lot!

Draught at Taphouse. Low and quickly disappearing white fluffy head. Cloudy red brown body. Sweet roasted malt strawberries aroma. Mild and sweet fruity flavor with a dry hops bitterness and some notes of grass. Low carbonation. Long bitter sweet finish. Alcohol well hidden. Well balanced. Lovely.

Doften Dov något komplex lite jordkällare. Krämig känns den är jövligt Ofiltrerat. Inga speciellt fräscha Dipa smaker. Nya ok IPA man inte behöver dricka igen. 9% hindrar ju andra öl testas.
