2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy amber body. Watery texture, light in character - light bittery hops and malt. Soft bittery long aftertaste. Aroma is fruity, caramely, hay, bread/cereal, liquorice. Soft carbonation. I wouldn’t call it Hopping mad because it doesn’t reflect the beer’s character.

The aroma is soft and fruity, touches of toffy, peach and apple. Bitterness is moderate, the body a little thin for a heavy bitter. To the taste, it is sweetness and honey, earthy and floral keys. End sharper dry, resin and more sour.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a deep amber with small white head. Medium carbonation though the head disappears pretty quickly. Aromas os sweet malt and perhaps a little caramel. Not much in the way of hop aromas as would have expected. Flavours are once again sweet malt with some honey. Again not much flavour from the hops though there is some bitterness on the finish and a somewhat resiny after taste. Body is a little thin especially nears the end. An OK ale but was hoping for a little more.
