Bottle, gift from Matt. Backlog rating from bottle collection and historic scoring. No tasting notes kept, just rating.

500ml bottle pours amber with medium head. Aroma hops with a touch of citrus. Bitter taste - OK but nothing special.

Smooth mouth feel with a gentle bitterness. A hint of malty caramel in there too. Served cold it’s nice and refreshing

500ml bottle - Golden amber body, thin white head. Nose is hoppy with some grapefruit and tea notes. Taste has a refreshing light hoppy note with tea and grapefruit featuring again with a malty element. Quite nice and simple.

Cask. Golden ale with a thick white cloud on top. A light orangey nose. Taste is also light and orangey. Almost like an orange squash. A little malty and bitter taste. Bright, breezy and pleasing.

pivnizub (10808) - Bochum, Por�ř�, GERMANY - JAN 23, 2016
Flasche(Dank an Sabine!): Deep golden , a bit unclear, quite quickly collapsing loose off-white head, dry fruity-malty nose, tannic hops and an illusion of almonds detectable; moderate dryish bitter-sweet flavour, a certain malty base still present; pretty light bodied but not watery at all; mild but still quite spicy bitter-fruity finish. O.K. …

mzaar (3643) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2015
Flaska 500 ml från Utobeer, London. Klar guldfärgad med ett medelstort vitt skum. Dofter av säd, honung och frukt. Smakinslag av citrus, gräs, säd och toast. Lätt beska i avslutningen. OK men det är allt.

Skinnyviking (9717) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2015
Cask at the GBBF 2015. Low fluffy and quickly disappearing off-white head. Clear amber body. Weak malt caramel aroma. Thinbodied malt straw flavor with a dusty note. Little hops bitternss. Low carbonation, short finish.

As BestivAle @ Camp Bestival, Dorset Decent enough brew, nothing out of the ordinary. I think ’a palate of...vanilla’ might be stretching it somewhat! Nevertheless good tang of citrus and lovely bread/toast backbone.
