3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Burnt amber colour, frothy white head fades leaving good lacing. Really lovely hop nose - somewhere in between a big pineappley US hop bomb and an English session ale - lots of sweet lime, a touch of apricot, some grapefruit even, light piney sprucey notes. Palate is lovely soft woody sweetness, and then a big hop hit - definite grapefruit, slightly peachy, just a tiny splash of soapiness. Long lingering bitter finish. Really quite bitter and juicy. I’m impressed! If this truly is the new wave of English hops, I’m VERY excited.
Can, April 2016. Muddy orange with a compact foam and an eddy of floaties. Impressive from the can. Honeyed tinned mandarin, grapefruit and faintly coniferous aroma as it warms. Discreet floral, mandarin, pine and red apple notes like old school English fruit salad bottoms. Booze-infused sponge warmth and toasted nut base. Wakes up after a slow start.

Floral smells, dusty malts. Didn’t dig this one seemed similer to another moor beer PMgep (280) - Lund, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2016
On tap on Monks Cafe, a while ago. Darker golden color, grassy aroma, but a bit to malty for me in the taste. kajser27 (1807) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 1, 2016

Keg at The Lyric, Soho. It pours hazy cloudy orange - amber with a small white head. The nose is soft, sweet, juicy, sticky fruits, tangerine, mango and candied peel. The taste is bitter, juicy, resinous, mango, apricot, pine, pepper, sticky action, some alcohol warmth, grass and straw with a dry finish. Medium body and fine prickly carbonation. A bit chewy on the mouth-feel. Rather nice overall.
