On tap at OX184, Edinburgh. Pours hazy golden, medium white head. Herbal, spicy, zesty, medium bodied. Unusual one, but herbal notes are not my favourite. teorn88 (7687) - Rimini, ITALY - NOV 11, 2015

Draught @ Stoom, Nijmegen. Lightly hazy yellow color, small white head. Herbal, spicy aroma. Lightly sweet as well. Taste is also herbal and spicy, minty and a bit medicinal. Not my thing, glad I got a small sample as a try out sort of speak. Leighton (23698) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2015
Keg at Mother Kelly’s - London. Pours clear gold with a creamy white head. The aroma holds lemongrass, Turkish delight, some green herbs. Light to medium to sweet flavor, well spiced, fairly dry, with bready pale malts, something like ginger. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with more bready malts, more Turkish delight, lightly bitter herbs. Zesty lemon. It’s fine, but I wouldn’t want a pint of it.

Old Fountain. Cask. Hazy gold beer, good size cream colour head. Palate is smooth and a little soft. Decent fine carbonation. Smooth malt base provides support for what tastes like Lemongrass, violets and a little ginger. Very mild citrus. Modest ginger heat before the semi dry finish. Spicy linger. Easy going spice beer. Decent.
Keg from We Brought Beer in Balham. There’s more than a touch of parma-violets going on here. It’s unlikely to be everybody’s cup of tea, but for those who love the more floral pale ales, this is some kind of nectar. A nice galangal back note hints at ginger without its usual astringency and you can definitely detect lemongrass in both taste and aroma. Some of Wild Beer’s concoctions are fun, challenging, but not necessarily drinkable beyond a bottle or two, Rod Nam Sang, however, offers a more balanced beer that I’d happily down whenever the opportunity presented itself. cgarvieuk (27059) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 1, 2015
