4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Quite a few bottles @ Fox and Hounds, Aabenraa. Almost clear orange body with a fina, stable off-white head. Gould say a lot about the aroma, citric, grapefruit, malt etc. but actually I find this aroma like the smell from the inside of a brand new car! Flavor is medium sweet, quite malty, hint of caramel, quite complex fruit flavors, peaches, grapefruit, mango, resin, dry fruit with more and a tart, slightly acidic funky little finish. Strong bitterness, still not out of balance. Fine and balanced body, long lasting tasty and bitter finish. I really enjoyed to have this one easy available for my two weeks in December.

Keg at CBC2012, from some old notes. Pale with a creamy white head. Aroma is zesty, fruity. Lively carbonation. Assertive grapefruit zest and lemon flavour. Super dry finish. Very drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[6026-20131030] 330mL bottle. Fragrant fruity orange rose petals aroma. Slightly hazy, red orange body with a quick foamy white head. Boozy woodsy orange leaves flavour has a lingering sweet aftertaste. Medium-full body is all high octane fuel so it also feels dense. Interesting but couldn’t have a lot. (8/3/6/3/14) 3.4

Bottle from Mogwai Bar. Smell has hops and some fruits. Pours amber with a small white head. Taste is a bit bitter with some ginger and some hops. Palate is easy with some strayness. Overall a beer just above decent, but it do hold some nice qualities.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaska på Beer ditch. En besvikelse. Saknar det man förväntar sig mest, humle och brett. Istället en ganska medelmåttig malttung IIPA med viss citrusfruktighet och caramellsötma. Helt okej men hade förväntat mig mer.
