Bottle shared at chriso’s Post-GBBF 2014 Tasting - London. Pours hazy gold with a wimpy, off-white head. Some jammy citrus aspects, earth. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Ripe citrus to finish, dirt, rind, bread. Not great but this bottle might not be in top condition. minutemat (5662) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2014
330ml bottle from Beerdock’s bargain bin. 4 months out of date. Pours hazy gold with medium size white head. Extremely bitter lime and earthy hops with slight sour character. Not entirely sure if this is intentional or if it’s turned a bit rough since it’s BBD. Either way it ended up down the sink.
