Bottle that Craig shared with me at Fairports Cropredy Annual Reunion 12-07-10 Spikey in mouth with sweet Seville oranges on nose and in mouth. Its a bit of a one trick pony in that respect as I get little else but I like it, easy going and pleasant and a relief from the hoppier beer I have just had. [b> A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from GBBF 2010. Gold, haze, thick lasting off white head. Some wild yeast, some decent hop on aroma. Satsuma. Even a bit like a Belgian yeast, a spicy Belgian blond even. Fine, if not overly exciting but I do like the satsuma tangerine flavours.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Pizzeria Paradiso in Georgetown. Dry, hoppy and sessionable golden beer with a lightly tart, fruity tang. Heart’s in the right place. Could use more malt backbone, and it could be done without sacrificing dryness or low abv. Could be cleaner, but this is a brewer’s beer, for enjoying during and after a long day over the tun and kettle.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours deep golden with gushingly large white head. Nose is very light with some bready-biscuity notes. On the palate there is a cereal-grain like sweetness with some balancing citrus, lively carbonation, and a touch of white pepper on the finish. More enjoyable when right out of the fridge than once warmed a few mins.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 28 Apr 2010) Golden colour with brief, white head. Fruity nose with notes of peaches, biscuits and dusty hops. Fruity, malty taste with peaches, citrus, biscuits and dusty hops in the finish. Medium body, balanced sweetness, moderate bitterness. Not very exciting, but drinkable and refreshing.
