ChrisO Tasting. Hazy gold - amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is airy, semi dry and has mild fine carbonation. Fluffy malts, thin creamy sweetness. Trace of fresh orange in to a mild marmalade. Little pine. Mild hop spice. Light semi dry finish. Decent.
Bottle shared at the chriso and Ruth pre-Christmas/post-Pigs Ear holiday tasting of 2015 - London. Thanks to mom for this one. Pours mostly clear gold with a frothy white head. The nose holds crackery malts, old orange, faint caramel. Medium sweet flavor with old hops, bread, grass, pine, orange and more crackers. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sugary finish, lightly resinous, lightly warming, with more citrus fruits and crackers. Definitely not at peak freshness. So so.

Pretty average stuff, overly sweet and malty ... kind of a brewpubs ’our first IPA’ feel about it. Scopey (14523) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2015
