Bottle picked up from Beer Gonzo, Earlsdon, Coventry, Sunday 9th November 2014 Pours murky amber with a little white film atop. Buzzy citus in mouth, sweet but slightly underipe orangesleaving a fuzzy, furry, pithiness (but sweeter than pithy) across tongue and roof of mouth. I like this its got an ever so slightly rough around the edges quality but. Lovely bitterness, marvellous. A7 A3 T8 P4 Ov17. 3.9

23rd October 2014
Persistent slow gusher. Hazy amber beer, big pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and dry, good fine carbonation. Light caramel malts, a little rye spice. Soap! Light marmalade and citrus on the back end as well some emerging malt cream sweetness. Finishes light. Would be good if not for the infected soapy note. Second infected bottle on the trot from this brewer. Not impressed.

Much better than the pale ale by these guys! Caramel in the nose and the palate, a hint of citrus and decent bitterness, maybe more caramel than I would normally go for, but a decent beer none the less. Worth another try.

330ml bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Pours deep opaque red-amber with a fine cream foam. Enticingly juicy blackcurrant, Fruit Salad chew and background husk aroma with a pronounced waft of alcohol. Slick and balanced with robust husk and hints of smoke overlaid with more blackcurrant, soapy floral and melon hop. West coast peach and iced tea coming through. Soft condition. Good lingering husk. The malt bill imparts a bit too thick a Californian accent for my liking but that aside it’s a tasty and well brewed effort from Coventry’s newest brewery and as a Cov lad that makes me happy. Hooray.
