Keg at Holyrood 9a. Looks nice, golden with a decent head and lacing. Has a mixed hop aroma - possibly English hops with US Citrus hops in the mix. Tastes a tad thinner than I’d expect at 8.3%. Refreshing palate, like the standard Joker. Nice.

Clear golden beer with a zesty hop aroma. The flavour is a very sharp, sweet citrus with hops, leaving a sweet, tangy finish. Nice but the strength and sweetness mean I wouldn’t want more than a couple at most.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at the Earl of Essex - London. Pours clear, bright gold with a fine, tight and creamy cap. Tangy citrus nose with tangerine and melon. Medium to big sweet flavor, somewhat boozy, tangy, with ripe and almost rotting orange and grapefruit, some mango. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Warming finish, lightly sticky and resinous, with faint pine, further tangy citrus fruits. Nothing special, but reasonably drinkable given the ABV.

Keg BrewDog Shoreditch. It pours clear golden yellow with a thick yellowish-white head. The nose is sweetish malt, biscuit, tea, light citrus and dough. The taste is bitter-sweet, biscuit, light floral, decent bitterness, zesty citrus, lemon, peach, tea, light alcohol and lemongrass with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Interesting, pretty solid stuff.

Keg at BrewdogBrum. Smells nice enough, tastes nice enough. Falls down slightly against it’s Magic Rock and Wild competitors though. A little thin, a little lacking in zip. A restrained DIPA.
