Bottle share at CBC Clerkenwell, thanks to Fegus. Clear dark orange, still, clear, big foamy white head. Aroma is oniony, pine, plastic, leafy hops. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is salty caramelised onions, pine, flowers with a soft dark malt background. Weird ... but it works for me. Quite enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to Fergus. It pours clear amber with a medium, foamy white head. The nose is soft, juicy, light peach, lemon sherbet, sweet bread and mild toffee. The taste is crisp, bitter, toasty grain, caramel/toffee, piney resin, light alcohol and a touch of hope astringency with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A bit restrained methinks.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer is too quiet... Itís need to be louder - needs far more intensity to hold my attention. Still, itís a well balanced ale and slid down fast so itís just needs the hops pumped up.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 10C. Clear amber with a thick white head That fades fairly quickly.. Aroma is fruit, earthy and spicy, with gooseberries, lime-leaf, grapefruit, some bread crust. Oily with lowish carbonation that is just perfect for me. Sweet spicy bread, explosive gooseberry and citrus, hints of other fruit. Finish is fairly dry and quite bitter. Partly I liked this because that pungent and coiled earthy/ spicy top note that green hopped beers often promise actually is delivered here but the fact that itís a little less fizzy is worth a point too. Excellent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500mL bottle. Pours a clear copper hue with a very nice fruity/floral aroma. Tangerine and lychee in the flavour with a resinous bitterness. Not bad.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Taster at GABS Melbourne 230515. Lots going on with this beer in the hop department with passionfruit, grapefruit and pine cones all coming through in the aroma. Deep amber colour with copper flecks throughout and a nice steady even layer of foam that hung around but didnít outstay its welcome. One of the best Tuatara beers that I have tried and I am eager to try it again.
