2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tried chilled from the fridge, didn’t really think it was a good example of the style although the spiciness on the finish was a unique talking point. The overall yeastiness was a little overpowering in this one.

Room temp bottle, a gusher. BB May 2014. Sparkling light orange with a bubbly white head. Smells of yeast, citrus, some washing up liquid. Body is medium to light with medium carbonation. Taste - malts, lager flavours, slight dishwater, minerals. It’s drinkable and inoffensive, but below average.

Bottle from Waitrose. Whilst you’re out buying one, also buy a copy of Willie’s Chocolate Bible. Nip back home and turn to page 224 and make the Orange, Almond, Ginger and Bitter Chocolate Cake. Drink the beer with a piece of the cake. Outstanding.
