3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 75cl corked. An unclear, golden beer with lots of floaties and an off-white head. Pale malt, yeast notes, some alcohol, citrus, apples and a spicy peppery hop note in the aroma. The flavor is quite strange, without me being able to point out what makes it strange. There’s a herbal and grainy flavor with pale malt and a decent bitterness, maybe it’s just the mix of flavors I find strange, or maybe there’s something I couldn’t pin. Warming and dry mouthfeel, yet sweetish. Quite bitter, herbal finish. Sure a drinkable beer, but as already mentioned, also a strange one. (080731)

Bottle, Ale Cellar, Darlington. Very hazy golden colour with a frothy, dissipating white head. Medium body. Aroma was yeasty and fragrant with some summer fruit .Flavour was complex and interesting; sweet with notes of malt, clove and citrus fruit. Alcohol fairly well masked. Good stuff.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 33cl. It pours a hazy light orange beer with a quick diminishing white head. The nose is of soy sauce, aniseed, burnt plastic and lemon with a hint of tomato. Fruity taste with a hint of burnt plastic. Poor lacework. Pleasant bite just before the finish which is dry with hints of yeast. Better than the ambrée.....!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very slightly hazy gold with a large white head. Leathery yeast aroma with alcohol and indeterminate fruit. Taste is sweet, warming and very alcoholic. A little dryness. Perhaps a bit too fizzy, but otherwise this is a lovely approachable beer that has a friendly, rough artisanale edge.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A strong taste.
It seems like regliss in the end in the mouth.
Alcohol is here, but it’s a good beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cl fliptop bottle: poured cloudy yellow with a medium white head. Yeast and fruit in the aroma and alcohol. Mild lemon. Flavor was full of alcohol at first which took a little getting used to. Moderate lemon, apple, and grape along with a cognac-like flavor. Yeast floaters. Lightly metallic. Decent.
