Spiritus malt herbal aroma. Murky Amber colour great head and lacing. Malt medicinal spiritus flavour. Smooth lingering palate. Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2015
500ml Bottle from the brewery.
Pours a very cloudy mid-amber with a quickly diminishing white head. It settles after an initial gassy liveliness to look more like scrumpy cider than most beers. The nose is sweet and pleasant, with mango and lychees while bitterness rules the taste on both its early palate and a long finish. The flavour has light floral, soapy hop notes as well as honey and apple sweetness. Weakened by the fact it tastes every bit of its 7.2% ABV. Another complex beer from Durham, though nothing like as good as the Smoking Blonde for me, but that’s not to say there isn’t a fair bit to like about it. I’d recommend drinking a full bottle as I enjoyed it more the further it went down as my palate became immersed in its flavours. MrTipple (5000) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2015
Aroma: fruity, some grain malts, citrus. Appearance: clear gold, large, frothy, white head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: fruity sweetness making room for some bitters quickly, citrus and grapefruit. Overall: quite a nice Strong Ale, nicely balanced. Pint at GBBF 2015, Kensington Olympia.

Cask at GBBF 2015. It pours a clear gold with a fine white head of foam. The nose is cocoa & coffee with a mild stout flavor. Alright. hawthorne00 (3956) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 30, 2015
Bottle. Golden amber with an inch of white head. Aroma of honey, dough, pine, vague citrus, spices. Creamy getting towards syrupy, lovely lowish carbonation. Sweet honeyed dough, strong pine and herbal notes, some lemon. Bitter and pithy at the end with an overtly boozy note that’s a little excessive. Idiosynkrasie (7539) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2015
500ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Floral and fruity, hoppy aroma, notes of gooseberry, pear, strawberry, a spicy touch of celery. Taste is minimally sweet pale malty, fruity hoppy overtones, mild bitterness, a floral touch; strong, full body. OK. JorgeLee (2117) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2015
Bottle from Beer Hawk. I quite like this style of beer so I’m probably biased. There are some fairly idiotic review comments here, or maybe the brewery expected the beer geeks to be a bit geekier than they actually are! Rich, slightly (quite!) boozy, nice pale ale malt character, then quite a big hop bitterness. Definite C hop character, maybe a tad incongruous? Or maybe more refreshing? I quite enjoyed this!

Hazy light copper, decent off-white head. Aroma is light and yeasty. Flavours of pine, citrus, caramel, a little tropical fruit. Unsurprisingly boozy. Decent.
