3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg @ Southern, Edinburgh 191212
Golden amber, clear, thin white head
Aroma is very fruity, rich quite intense berry aromas, not a whiff of booze, mellow intense fruits, great aroma
Taste as aroma, getting soft pine but its main very berry fruity, sweet mellow and intense, sweet resinous, not a very complex beer but very nice, some light soft toffee caramel malts in the background
Palate - Medium carb and body. The keg dispense is working here, that bit of fizz stopping it from being cloying. Finish as main flavour, a little dry, touch of bitterness
Overall - Seems to get mixed reviews here. I did like it a lot more than I thought I was going to.
