bottle from oddbins. so that’s what’s become of the cairnpapple. fairly light, lots of biscuit, malt, grapefruit. there’s nothing not to like here, clearly i’ve become spoiled by choice that I can find this so pedestrian.

500ml bottle (KKK Kamppi, Helsinki)
Light floral honey aroma. Pale orange, brief head. Anna gets diacetyl, I get honey, in particular in the taste. Light palate, fitting carbonation for a bottled quaffer. Finish a bit bitter and harsh. Sweetish, but harsh, didn’t translate to bottle well, I’m guessing.

500ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Clear golden color. Medium size, white head, stays. Buttery, mandarins, citrus, sweet, herbal, caramel in aroma. Mandarin, carmel, citrus, buttery in taste. Dry, cloth, mandarin in aftertaste. Soft carbonation. Mandarin saves it for me. Average brew.

theprof (931) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2016
Tap. Aroma marmalade and malt but this fades in the glass. Pours pale gold with lasting white top. Taste has citrus hops to the fore and a bitter floral finish. Nothing special

2.8
Towey1989 (2719) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2016
Cask at The Earl Grey Inn, Leek. A clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of dog biscuits, some lemon and subtle floral hops. Taste of biscuit, caramel, some orange, lemon, maybe apricot and subtle floral hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, biscuity, slight floral hop bitterness in the finish. An unappealing dog biscuits aroma and flavour throughout, subtle citrus and floral hops better this a little but overall, a below average APA.

2.7
Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2016
Cask at The Tap & Spile, Framwellgate Moor, Durham, £3.55/pint. Mid-amber pour with an off-white head that leaves loose lacing on the glass. The nose is biscuity and woody with a certain grainy rabbit hutch character. It smells darker than it is with dark fruits and maybe fig in the aroma. The taste opens buttery sweet with woody flavours leading into a nutty, slightly dry finish that’s thick on the palate. Not great.

3.2

Bottled (AbM). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, some mild nectar and mild sour wooden notes. Flavour is fruity, floral, some mild bready and mild chalky notes as well.
