(Keg at Kittys, 20130831) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had black currant leaves, fruitiness, caramell and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, cough mixture, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was spicy and bitter. The aroma promised more but the taste was quite displeasing.

Keg at BD Shoreditch. It pours a clear golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is complex, grassy, piney, oranges, light grapefruit and a slight yeasty touch. Mild carbonation, lovely dry mouthfeel. Flavour is hoppy, dry, bitter. Especially grassy and a bit piney. The Belgian yeast strain lends the beer some softness and a light fruitiness. Quite enjoyable.

Draught (5,4%) @ Kittys
Aroma feels at first quite like Punk IPA with fruity notes, gooseberry bush and biscuits. Then some earthy and urinal cake notes do occur. Flavour is slightly sour with gooseberry bush, hops, some caramel, biscuits and urinal cake. Also some cereal afterwards. Finishes sour and slightly tart with more urinal cake, earthy notes and hints of bitter bush leaves. A Punk IPA with urinal twist. Better without, but not bad in this way either.

Draught. Clear pale copper in color with a small head. A bit of skunky notes, some floral and notes of citrus in aroma. Sweetish taste blended with toffee and grassy notes and some skunky notes in aftertaste. Not that interesting.

Davros (3054) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 26, 2013
Pours amber with a small head. Nose shows strong Belgian phenols, some sweet clean malt and floral hops. Also a soapy note. Very similar flavours, but with a big fruity hops presence. Dries out a little in the finish bu theres still a fair bit of malt. Could use more bitterness. A bandaid character is noticeable later. Carbonation seems a little low.
