Bottled. An unclear golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of spices and lemonpeal. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of spices, cloves, lemongrass, and more, leading to a dry spicy finish. A bit too much for me. Thanks pinball for sharing.

9th October 2008. GABF. A very dry and perfumed spicy beer. Fairly hot as is spicy not alcohol) finish. The overall feel of this beer reminded me of the dry spicy mix you get in Indian restaurants, Unusual beer!

Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours golden with a rough white head. Lovely citrus aroma - and I believe I pick up some pepper as well. Medium body, a little sweet lemon and perhaps lemongrass. Dry finish. Very fresh and drinkable - would be a perfect summer quencher. 290111

Theydon_Bois (20621) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2012
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass (drank Mar ’12) to a hazy gold colour with a thinnish white head. Smells of orange peel/zest, other hints of citrus and some peppercorn, corriander and a pinch of other ’unidentifiable’ herbs! Flavour wise a sour orange and to a lesser extent lemon dominates the mouth allied to background flavours of wheat and moderate spice. Also get the peppercorns again particularly in the finish however there was also a background ’sweetness’ to the beer which I don’t think overly helped the balance of flavours! Mouthfeel was light to medium in body, perhaps a little too thin and watery? Overall not impressed. Not a particularly well balanced beer and a little thin. Slightly ’spicie’ but not so ’nicie’ - they must have set themselves up for a review along those lines and I’m sure I’m not the first to quote that and I won’t be the last! Would not seek out this beer in any way shape or form in the future. I would imagine the only likelihood of me drinking again would be on a hot summers day as I guess it has ’refreshment’ potential in such conditions, but someone would have to gift me a bottle!
