2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ Railway Bell, New Barnet. Slightly hazed amber-red with a thin bubbly head. Floral, herbal, with the jasmine dominant and providing an aroma not out of place at a Moroccan suk. It’s a little less stated in its taste, but not by much, however it’s enough to allow a palatable texture through.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home in London - sourced from Beermerchants. Pours clear gold with a frothy, off-white head. The aroma holds bready malts, some herbal hops, spices, pine. Medium sweet flavor with some ripe berry fruits, subtle mint, orange peel, lightly toasted bread, earth, grains, spices. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Finishes with further spice character, graham cracker, toasted grains, ripe berries. Novel stuff, but I imagine this beer would be better without the spicing.
