Keg at the hanging bat. Pours golden amber, very sweet, a bit too sickly I think.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: this beer pours almost all head, the head is beige and settles into a very dense thick head, the beer is a hazy orange color
Aroma: strong apple, alcohol, plum
Taste: some pale malt, alcohol, plum even, very faint apple, has a bitterness to it as well,
Palate: lively carbonation, light mouthfeel, bitter aftertaste, leaves mouth dry
Overall: if nothing else this is a unique beer, I like it, the Apple Aroma made me a bit surprised when I actually tasted it because it has so much more than apple flavors, it is high in abv so drink slow, could hide the alcohol Taste better

Poured into a taster glass showing a bright lemon peel yellow with a finger of a white foam.
The nose shows a lot of lime zest and notes of black pepper in between.
The palate shows is very light bodied with a high carbonation. The taste shows a very strong apple and lemon forwardness with a slight tartness. There’s a slight champagne style yeasty bitterness surrounding the whole beer and in the background.

It poured a hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma was of citrusy hops, malt and some straw. The taste was sweet with hints of malts, lemons and citrusy hops with a bitter finish. Wow.

Keg at the broadfield, sheffield. Very slightly Hazy pale yellow, small lacy white head. Aroma is apples and rhubarb can get some sweet strawberry too. Taste is lovely, wild beer sourness but balanced with fruity sweetness and a good hoppy punch on the back of the tongue. Effervescent with a nice medium body. Excellent, best wild beer Co I’ve had.
