Cheapo bottle from Salt Horse, Edin. Past it’s best before.....Definite amber in colour. Pretty clear. Full off-white head. Aroma has a very sweet Lucozade note up first. Lemon sherbert sweets. A little musky. Very light menthol. A little tropical fruit fool. Stewed rhubarb. Tinned mango and pineapple. A little weird but full of interest. Flavour has a sweet white wine level. Fruit and acidity. Gooseberry. A little pina colada. Turns bitter quickly. Zippy. Dry palate. Bicarb effervescence in the mouth. Fizzy carbonation. A little thin in body. Medium length finish with some lasting bitterness. Ok.....could be fresher I s’pose. nihtila (3954) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 16, 2016

Hazy amber beer, good cream colour head. Airy palate, fairly dry. Good fine carbonation. Light malts, some caramel. A little cream. Orange and orange peel hops, marmalade as well. Light dry crisp finish. Decent.
Not convinced it needs ten hops in there, but it works, so fair enough. Very dark amber for an amber ale, with a big white head and plenty of lacing. Medium bodies, frothy, decent carb. Plenty of hops on the nose, providing citrus, grapefruit, a bit of pine. Tastes similar with a good malt base making it smooth with caramel sweetness. Good stuff.
