3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Jake’s Place, Edinburgh. It pours hazy golden with a medium white head. The nose is farmyard, pine and earth stewed orange. The taste is smooth, moderate bitterness, grapefruit, lime, light resin and light farmyard with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Ok, but a bit too much farmyard action for my liking.
