theprof (1520) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2018
Tap at the Junkyard Nottingham. Pours murky orange brown with halo of lace. Aroma is herbal resinous hops which can produce interesting fruit/vegetable effects in the mouth. Taste is medium sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is medium bodied, sticky texture, average carbonation, and an aftertaste rather than a finish sour mainly like salad . So a puzzle in that it is not unpleasant but it left me with the unnerving thought that it might taste much the same on regurgitation. FatPhil (17720) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 31, 2018

Sweet aroma, fruity, "eww"- sickly tinned fruit, pineapple in syrup. Nice bitterness in the mouth. Gentle malts. Great drinkability. Even after it's warmed a little, still no booze to it, and a good drinker. Decent strong IPA once you're past the sickliness of the aroma.

Same night as the Draught sample. Yeah, not as good. More evidence kegs suck.

Really quite interesting hoppy aroma, spicy, until you start detecting the celery, and a hint of pulse. Fashionably cloudy, pale, decently persistent spongy off-white head. Flattish smooth palate, carbonation seems forced. Remarkably bland taste, floury, starchy, more adjunct than malt, worse, the legumes are back in force. Or was that a root vegetable? Some herbal bitterness in the finish, with quite a long biting tingle. Alcohol is covered, so I guess this is good for getting the boost on if you want beers without having to taste any barley. Begrudging bonus point for that.
Poured hazy golden color with a thin white head.
Herbal, hoppy floral aroma.
Juicy, fruity hoppy flavors. Herbal. Juicy brew. Marduk (8998) - Reval, ESTONIA - NOV 14, 2017
