2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Nina’s Mini Market.
Appearance - it opens with a Belgian like head which then quickly fades. I sense infection. It’s golden.
Nose - confirmed infection, tangy sour wheat/barley notes.
Taste - more of the same really.
Palate - light bodied and tangy throughout. This beer is faulty.
Overall - will need to retry on cask as this wasn’t in the condition it should’ve been.

Cask at the Glasgow Real Ale Festival. This is a really interesting beer, with a ton of orangey spice on the nose *and* the palate. It’s also clean and refreshing. A great summer beer.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
clear bright and stale golden, visible carbonation and a slight ringed head. Herby lemon soap nose. initial taste is gritty, debasingly bitter and odd sweetness - coriander buzz fades realivingly quickly. Very firm carbonation. Finishes oaty, very OTT black pepper and a scratchingly spicy finish without any nourishing warmth from the cardamom - a bit creamy actually. Not something I’d like to be drinking again. 500ml bottle.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy orange, no head. Faint spice in the aroma, nothing defined. Flavour is clean malt, some spice and some dry wheat notes. Really light bodied, very fizzy. Short finish. Needs more of everything.
