3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from B&M. Nice looking beer, clean golden colour with a good white head. Nose isn’t as big or hippy as I’d expected, pleasant enough citrus character tho. Hops are more noticeable on the palate, nice lingering zesty finish. Good beer!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, from Bargain Booze, Barton. Pale lemon gold, thin shortlived white head and minimal condition. Good solid citrus and pineapple hop notes initially in the nose, with some background farmyard funk emerging as it warms. Full bodied in the mouth with a sweet grain note tempered by a solid peppery hop bitterness laced with citrus and some mineral chalkiness. Finish becomes quite dry and bitter, almost harshly so, but there is still a muted sweet grain note to keep a modicum of balance.

This pretty ordinary, still a good beer reminds me of saying: “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.” - Aristoteles

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Many thanks to Finn for this beer gift. 500ml bottle. Bright, warm golden body, pearl white head leaving clingy lacing behind. Leafy hops on the nose joined by a touch of citrus. Malt-fruity flavours including lemon, leafy hops and moments of honeyed malts. Good drying bitter support. Medium bodied. A nice one, just a little too dry in the long run. Satisfying cheese pairing (Tromsø 16.09.2016).
