4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Color - dark amber, reddish. Foam - White, not abundant, medium-grained and unstable, but sticky - all settled on the walls. Fragrance - fantastic - plenty of fruit, honey, flowers - very aromatic hops! Taste - a complex, fascinating - begins with fruit sweetness, goes into the hop bitterness in the background - caramel flavor, long finish is dry, bitter but pleasant aftertaste. Lovely Bitter!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Very nice aroma of peach, strawberries, light caramelly malt and subtle notes of tea. Dry, sessionable, unfortunately a tad watery. Nice biscuit notes in the flavour but also a less pleasant, bone-dry finish. Ok.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Some beers work when bottled, others don’t. And this one definitely does. Superbly balanced, with a lot of hops and a good helping of malt, spiced up with a little caramel. Amazingly flavoursome for such a low abv. The only minus is it’s slightly too gassy, but nothing that five minutes on the side won’t solve. A sterling beer, both on its own or with food.

Sample at SBWF 2013. Light flowery smell and taste, brittish. Not very exciting but probably works better in a full glas.

500ml bottle from Appellation Wines, Comely Bank branch. Pours a clear copper with a good white head. Interesting aromas, rye bread, cherries, cherry jam maybe? Caramel comes through on the taste, and a light hop bitterness. Medium body, medium on texture too, finishes well. Really enjoyed this.
