3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
3rd June 2013
Euston Tap. Light haze on this gold beer, little white head. Palate starts soft but turns crispy with lots of minerally carbonation. Creamy malt, semi sweet and quite dry. Sweet ester, vaguely bubblegum. Also a little candy fruits. Minerally finish. Not bad!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg @ common mcr, watery tripel esque flavour cloves, cinnamon, banana and light bitter hops with heavy yeast with a touch of citrus. Like a subdued st bernadus tripel. Excellent.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the Euston Tap, 12/06/13.
Lightly hazed golden with a thin off white head that thins to a film then retains.
Nose is orange, Belgian yeast, light caramel, dark fruits, touch of spice.
Taste comprises orange pith, lemon rind, yeast esters, bready malts, straw, a good caramel vein running through the centre, hint of spice.
Medium bodied, light spritz in the caronation that benefits this beer keeping it very drinkable.
Decent enough take on a Belgian.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg at the euston tap. Clear golden colour creamy white head. Grainy nutty aroma, subtle Belgian yeast esters. Bit of a leffe clone but crisper dryer and a bit more drinkable. Ecapourates of tthe tongue to leave a tinny sensation. Some floral esters in the finish.
