3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Market Row Wines drunk at home. Colour is clear ruby dark brown, very large foam off white head which dissipates to medium after one minute. Nose is like a new world IPA. Lots of citrous grapefruit and orange, caramel, toasty grain, herbal. Taste surprisingly doesn’t have the IPA bitter citrous kick I was expecting. Malty, caramel, minerally, slight green hop bitter, slight spicy kick, slight carbonic acidic. It has a sort of chalky minerally acidic tang and lingering finish which I’m not hugely keen on.

330 ml. bottle @ home. Purchased @ Caigny. BBF 06/08/2015. Light hazy dark brownish amber, spotty mocha / tanned head. Nose is light pine hops, chewy malts, some caramel, toffee, hops are clear. Taste is lightly bitter, touch metallic bit thin malt, caramel malt, light herbal malts, light pleasant toffee, candy aftertaste, light herbal metallic,… Touch thin body. Caramel. Decent but could be richer but that would probably require more malts, higher ABV etc. Feels a bit emptry.
