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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, as the WIldfire Extra Pale Ale. Hazy orange-brown pour with a pillowy white head. Floral and grapefruit hop aroma. Big grapefruit up front in the flavor, then things go downhill a bit. Kind of light after that, kind of peculiar. Despite the definite grapefruit notes, the beer doesn’t strike me as very hoppy. There is almost no malty sweetness. Light to medium body with fizzy, above average carbonation. Short finish of light fruitiness. Overall, not sweet enough, although it is interesting.
