Hazy orange color, slight yeast particals present. Average white head. Smell fruits, slight hints of hop and orange. Nice taste, soft yet kind of stimulating, tickling. It makes me want to taste more so that’s a good thing. Very good carbo, very good body. Very evenly balanced.

Bottle, bought @ EG.
Nice clear coppery golden colour with an even nicer, creamy, slightly off-white head. Great duration and fine lacings. Aroma is vinious, fruity, banana, apricot, bready malts and light esters. Medium carbonation, fine creamy and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is lovely, good grassy hops on top of fairly crisp doughy malts. Fairly warming and with a firm bitterness in the finish. Nice.

Scopey (11784) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2012 Tap at CBC, May 2012. It pours golden yellow, with a thin off-white head. The nose is herbal, sweet pear, melon, tinned nectarine, apricot, spice and sherbet. The taste is sweet nectarine, orange, mango, pear, melon, some spice, hay and sherbet. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not my favourite style and far too sweet.
