Hazy gold beer with a good white head. Lightly crisp palate. Minerals. Bready malt with a trace of raw grain. A little lager character here. Orange peel hops with a touch of grass. Crisp finish. Not bad but was hoping for better from these two brewers.
bottle from Darts Farm. Hazy amber-brown colour, large off-white head. Grainy malty base, quite rustic and robust, but works well with the tropical-citrusy hops. Bitter-sweet, pleasantly fruity and very smooth.

650ml bottle from The Wine a Emporium. Not overly fussed on this beer. Not a real lot of flavour or aroma. Okay but not outstanding. GBZ59 (1217) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - SEP 15, 2013
Bomba de mano. Vaso Shaker. Saboreada en Homo Sibaris (Barcelona) durante la presentación mundial simultanea. Color ámbar pálido y espuma blanca que conforma una tupida, fina y persistente capa. Aromas terrosos, herbales intensos y pan negro con matices de piel de naranja. Entrada voluptuosa y sabor de albaricoque maduro. Cuerpo pleno y carbonatación moderada. Textura densa. El albaricoque y el mango quedan salpicados por un ascendente y reseco amargor. Final prolongado y resinoso. Sabrosa y de fácil asimilación.
Hand-pump. Shaker glass. Enjoyed at Homo Sibaris (Barcelona) in a simultaneous world-wide presentation. Pale amber color. White forth creates a close & thin lasting crown. Earthy, intense herbal & black bread aromas as well as hints of orange peel. Voluptuous upfront & ripe apricot flavor. Full body. Moderate carbonation. Oily texture. Ripe apricot & mango are slightly dried by increasing bitterness. Long resinous finish. Easy drinkable & flavorful. lusikka (7814) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 1, 2013
660 ml bottle @ Ale & Hop, Barcelona. Pours a cloudy copper colour with a white lacy and foamy head. Aroma of very strong grassy hops, grapefruit and some biscuit. Rich flavour of strong citrusy hops, grass, floral notes, bread, strong herbal notes and weak caramel. Light bodied, extremely bitter finish with herbal notes and soft carbonation. Very good drinkability. My kind of a beer. soundawake (1) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2013 does not count
A very quaffable ale. A passionfruit nose (Galaxy?) A fruity and citrusy taste with a lingering spicy note - like white/green pepper. Very very tasty. At 4% I could sink a lot of these. johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2013
Well it looks great. Slightly hazy medium gold with a head you could build a house on. Smells quite nice too - peppery, grassy, citrussy nose with grapefruit, underripe mango and pine sap. The flavour follows well - gentle, which is fine for a session beer, but excellent St Clemensey hops with lots of spruce and pepper and grapefruit zest. Finish is fat and bitter and dry and long. Excellent colab from two great brewers.
