Scopey (12711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2016
Keg at Ubrew. It pours hazy deep orange with a small off-white head. The aroma is bitter - sweet, orange marmalade, kumquat, tinned peach, tangerine and candied peel. The taste is crisp, dry, bitter, pithy citrus, piney, orange peel, marmalade, kumquat, soapy with a dry, zesty finish. Medium body and moderate, prickly carbonation. Not bad. The taste doesn’t quite live up to the aroma.
