2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2008 500 ml bottle. Dark amber colour. Very small off-white head. Fruity aroma with some raisiny malts. Quite estery character. Soft malts and a little green grapes. Strong grassy hop flavour and a crisp hop bitterness. Slightly metallic. Aroma is not very nice, body is so so, but the aftertaste is great with lots of strong characterful hops.
2008-09-11: Medicinal hop aroma. Rounded and nicely balanced. Overall very drinkable, but not particularly exciting either.

Bottle. A dark orange colour, poured with a large head. Plenty of fruity aromas. Nice flavours with a sweet finish. The problem with Woods beer you either like or you dont. A reasonable beer to me.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle. Hazy dark orange body with a rather small white head. Relatively vague hoppy aroma, but delicate. Flavor is rather bitter with a nice malty sweetness. Medium body. A nice but rather plain hoppy ale that improves after a few more sips. Interesting and a bit different.
