3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler, freshly tapped keg, Late Feb 2012: strong banana and fresh sourdough aroma...dusty around the edges. Extremely cloudy yellow straw, thin ivory ring at the edges. Slightly tart flavour, with a touch of citrus fruit, butterscotch and bitter vanilla. Palatte is very full, evenly carbonated and lively. Great beer. Great Growler.

Bottle consumed at Cropredy, Fairports Annual Reunion Festival 2015, Friday 14th courtesy of Craig. It’s very dark now so determining the colour is pointless, I cannot see but it’s probably golden with a white head. It’s fine, a tad fruity, even a little tangy and tart. Ok. A6 A3 T6 P3 Ov12 3.0

Tap. Golden with small head. Light body. Mild pear/apple sweetness. Light spice. Dry it out a bit more and add more yeast, and it would be better, but decent.
