3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2015 Up to 5% now. Dark-ish bitter with a strong citrus character and a competing flavour of (very) sweet malt. All finished with a typically sharp and bitter aftertaste. Citrus is not really my thing and somehow the beer doesn’t seem to balance out that well although I’m sure plenty of drinkers will find it more to their taste than I did.

Cask at the Hope Tap (JDW), Reading at 5%. Attached to the Liberation American Brown Ale tap- it was only after intense pressure that the barman admitted they’d connected up the wrong barrel and it was actually this- damn ’Spoons. Turned out to be a lucky error though as it was a bit of a cracker. Poured deep gold with a thick white head. Lovely smooth and creamy caramel malts up front give a great mouthfeel. There’s a big spicy zing and sweet orange, passion fruit and melon after. Lovely stuff, but still annoyed at missing out a Jersey rate.
